Get to ride a BMW

There are no company cars available and I have to run out of the office this afternoon and I really didn't want to use my bike as I have to take some documents with me to a meeting. Anyhow, another guy in my office offered to let me take his RT 1100 (I think that's the model) since he has bags on it and the like. What a nice guy, right? Anyhow, it's not my typical riding choice, but , I'm thinking it'll be fun. Anyhow, I love getting paid to get out of the office and ride nonetheless

Tattoo= art, ear ring=style, jeans and tank top=rough, doesn't = I don't have money. One time I went to buy a $65 Mercedes wearing work clothes and dirty as heck, only one came up and helped and received his commision.:laughing6
Kind of frustrating but I can't resist of showing the sales people that you can't judge the book by its cover.

Frustrating to get someone to approach but after, it is satisfying to prove a point.

the RT1100 is the ultimate...i ride my dads all the time. Comfortable, great handling, storage, comfy for passengers, smooth, quiet, can be sporty when bags are removed, can be a windjammer with the electrical adjustable windshield...i really enjoy it, but its not nearly as fun around town as the 929er.
