    Tim D. - Nice to find this place.

    Hello again,

    I'm Tim D., I used to hang out occasionally at a different site, (he who must not be named), and I realize I am late to the game but at least I made it. I have to relearn how to post pics, make albums and such, but am grateful to recognize a few names I've seen here. A special shout out to Pirate, that HID headlight is still burning bright! The Stealth Backrest is still Bitch'n, and the Staintune silencer has a lovely sound, but does get removed from time to time. :-) I haven't seen FlyBoy's name yet, he sold me my awesome Ohlin's. I miss the guy from Canada who used to offer up free advice and bent over backwards helping me with my final drive. His avatar was a blue salamander? What is that thing? lol On his advice, I rode from California to Toad Rock. Toad Rock is quite the experience! I love it.

    In the year 2020 I'd like to get out on the road more, do some Rallies. I'm a camper, tent guy, if I have to pay for a place to sleep, I can't sleep! I plan on riding to other States, States with cheap gas prices! Nothing better than a free camp site and cheap gas, except of course...cheap burgers!

    My claim to fame is that I copied Fast Eddie and chopped off the lower portion of the fairing on my 2003 K1200RS. I'll tell you what...the used prices on a perfect condition K1200RS/GT is the Best Bang for the Buck anywhere to be found. Seriously, there should be a stampede on these bikes! Try buying any other bike for cheap, with low miles, that has cruise control, rides as smooth as silk, pulls like a locomotive, has a huge personality, is sexy, and has panache!

    Keep the rubber side down,

    Tim D.

        Hi Tim, welcome.
        I see some cheap KRSs listed here but then think of the issues they've had
        and my inability to get into the technical side of things on them, so I pass.
        Plus with the GS and my like of back roads, it'd be a garage queen. I've got
        too many of those now!

            Yes, Pierre! In the middle of winter, he left the cozy confines of his wood stove in his barn, and traveled quite a ways to the post office in order to mail me a pristine driveshaft. That's a Canadian winter I'm talking about, ha! Thanks Martin.

              I'm envious of the GS riders. I had a chance to ride one, a GS bike not the rider, and was surprised at how nimble and light it felt. And also how slick the transmission worked, very nice. I prefer the seating position too, as well as the off road capability.
