Yeah Babeeee!

Lone Star BMW just called. My bike is built and awaiting shipment. I've got this funny feeling in the gut, don't reckon it's from swallowing too much Copenhagen, either. Oh, it's gonna be a long month.

What was that middle thang?

I was in Austin today and stopped by Lone Star BMW. My bike has been released to the shipper! Got a print out with the VIN number, so maybe in four weeks it will be here!


Greg, if I give you Lone Star's number, will you call them everyday for me?

Cool My bike is not even invoiced.

I ordered it way way back in May. Built the first week the factory went back into production and still waiting.

Hopefully the planets will align for me this weekend. I am suppouse to leave on a cross county trip on September 30th. I can't push it forward and have plenty of farkles to install.

I think the dealer is getting tired of me.

at least we are STILL in the same boat
and..... as for the dealer getting tired of you......
tough shi_, quite frankly...
they make their money on us... i'm sure

it isn't their fault that bmw can't get bikes in our hands 17 days after they land on our shore.....
but....
we HAVE to blame SOMEONE :p
