The Old Beamer turned over 90,000 miles today. Made a nice little 170 mile Loop through some beautiful fall countryside.

The trusty old airhead ushered my into my first ride of 2018. Sanded the points, squirted a little boom juice down the spark plug hole and away she went. I really do love this old steed.

Never sell it and ride it often.  They seem to really enjoy riding in the rain.

I had mine out on Sunday.  Was about 10 celsius and sunny.  Awesome day for the first ride of 2018.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Ive had it up for sale, and when I got a few calls about it I got pretty bummed, so I pulled the post. There's been times I could have used the money, but in the end, I would rather have the bike than the amount of cash that I can get for it.

I hope its good in the rain. it was about 40 deg. f this morning, so I fired her up and rode to work, then checked the weather when I got here. There is a pretty good chance of her getting a little wet on the ride home. I have my rain gear too though. And I threw all the tools I need to sand the points in the tool box if need be. Irk is hooking me up with one of those fancy points doohickeys to make the points not corrode. Something is definitely amiss, thinking condenser, as I have to sand the points about every time that it sits more than a day.

Great looking ride my man, fills that parking space proudly

Can't wait to get Rhonda back on the road - no (legal) road riding allowed here in Quebec until mid March.  Weather's unseasonably warm here right now but the wife says we're in for some cold stuff so all bets are off.

Oh wow, I didn't realize that they had a bike ban in the winter months there.

I hadn't tricked myself into thinking that were out of the cold weather yet. This may just be an indian summer. We've had snow on Easter here before, so were far from out of the woods yet on winter. The only reason I rode today was the fact that we had 3 days of rain to get the salt off the road. We have had warm days before where you could have rode, but the salt is so thick you don't want to spray it all over your machine.
