Hey Meese Avon ?

How did those Storm 2's handle the 10k road trip ? Replacing my regular Storms with the 2's after 8k miles. Riding up to Deals Gap 2 weeks from now with fresh rubber. CAN'T WAIT !!!

Have a Great Ride, Lenbo

Felt great and stuck like glue.

Only have 2,500 miles on the front, as the trip was cut short when the bike overheated.

'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Rumor has it he ate too much of his wife's guacamole, grew proportionately, exceeded the bike's GVWR, overheated, and it blew chunks.

Rumor also has it he's been hiding from the insurance adjuster 'cause they will figger out what happened when they see him and deny a claim.

Probably just some rumors though...

(he better get in here and quash the rumors)
