  1. I never did hear from seller over the weekend as I expected to. Even texted him last night. I hope he and his mother are OK. I heard from another Bird owner in NM that contacted me from one of my many posts around the internet. He's asking $6500 firm for his '99 with 22,000 miles. Too much for me.
  2. I'm trying to catch up (financially) with the...wiser crowd. Dad got laid off in 2009 and was bummed for a couple days having spent 33 years of his life with Sears having started out loading trucks in a warehouse. To make a long story short, he never returned to the workforce and has been happily living out his retirement years. He worked full time and had multiple real estate investments for 30+ years and I never had a want or need that wasn't fulfilled.
  3. I’ll be around to curate all ya’lls Birds.
  4. Bike has (3)...count em'...1, 2, 3, 12v outlets for just such an occasion.
  5. One seller went MIA after telling me he'd send more pics and video. I let it slide for a week and hit him up again, he responded and apologized because he was out of town in another state with his mother who was in the hospital. He promised to get pics today, so hopefully he did and hopefully he'll send them tomorrow. Or who knows, maybe his mother isn't doing well or worse and he's focused on that. I just wonder.....the previous Bird I owned was bought from seller who's father had just died. We had an appointed time for me to check the bike out and he called to cancel because his father just died. That pushed things back by a week.
  6. I've got roadside through Progressive. Had to use it once with my truck but, I digress. Thanks for the link, I'm really digging the unique XX items.
  7. Nah, it came with matched luggage fitted for the cases. You think we get our hands dirty?
  8. The majority of people that I've talked to about this also said, "plug and patch", and they were ready to help me in any way they could. They were all riders. I'll you what though, I'm definitely putting a plug kit on the bike and I see they have neat little compressors now too.
  9. I like getting multiple opinions. I really do. It REALLY helps with getting perspective on whatever situation I'm engrossed in. Fortunately I still have my dad to call too. He listened and admitted, "I put a plug in my Valkyrie tire once and rode it until the tire needed to be replaced. But it was the rear tire." I knew deep down that I should replace the tire, even though I wanted to patch & plug it. So I called the BMW dealer down the hill and they had what I needed and plenty of time to do it. I called the Honda shop and they didn't have the tire (could get it in a day) and had to check if they had the tool to balance it. Then they asked what kind of bike, when I said BMW the dude says Oh...it's going to be $220 in labor. BMW quoted me $80 for labor and charged me $59 for labor. So yes, I took it in and they were finished before I could even get good and settled into the sofa.
  10. Send the tire back? To the dealer? So far today the selling dealer replied to my email with a bunch of apologies. My response was "Thanks for the apologies. What can you do to help with it?" Tire code 4816. So that would be the last week of November or the first week of December 2016. My better half really wants a new tire on the front....especially since she's riding on the back.

  12. I’ve got friends with tire machines and or the tools to dismount the wheel and tire who have offered the help or loan the hand tools. I sent the selling dealer an email last night expressing my displeasure. So I’m hoping they are going to pony up for a fix or replacement.
  13. Got to inspecting the new BMW some more tonight and determined that the front tire is leaking from a puncture. I’m looking into my options among friends to patch and plug it myself. However, I’ve never ridden on a patched/plugged motorcycle tire. Would you? you can see that the puncture is in the tread. Additionally, it was like this at the dealership and they didn’t catch it even after I inquired about the low tire pressure from 1,300 miles away.
