I have followed the new bike thread relating to the purchase of the Triumph street twin with some envy.
I test rode and ordered my BMW F850GS sport in July. Predicted delivery was late August or first week of September.
That seemed a long time, but I recalled my last new BMW being at the dealer 3 weeks ahead of prediction last time.
The following week I remembered I hadn't opted for the comfort touring seat.
A phone call to the dealer revealed that it was too late. The only way of adding it was a separate order, costing over 200 more than an ordering option!
I declined and told them I'd get the supplied seat, refilled by bootleg seats at Preston.
They phoned back to tell me they could cancel my first contract and submit an alternative order, including the comfort seat. Fantastic.
A further phone call instructed me the new delivery date was week beginning 24th September! Further delays could see me having a 19 plate!
So now all I can do is wait. And wait. And wait.....
I figured new bike, new helmet. I ordered it via Amazon. Ordered Wednesday evening, delivered Saturday morning. From Italy! BMW, take note.
Bike and matching helmet...... Eventually.

A couple of days ago, I went for a late afternoon ride in the Lakes. I've been over Hardknott and Wrynose Passes a few times on my motorbikes but took the Silverwing just to see how the transmission would cope. We approached via a new to me route by Dungeon Ghyll.

The bike performed well and it *is* easier than a manual tranny bike, although the bumps are felt a bit more. The Hyper Pro front springs and YSS rear shocks make a lot of difference. Anyhow, you can see the trip for yourselves on a video I've uploaded on YouTube:

Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the
craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that *you can't have your
kayak and heat it too.*

A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel, and were standing
in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories.
After about an hour, the manager came out of the office, and asked them to disperse.
'But why,' they asked, as they moved off.
'Because,' he said, *I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer.*

A woman has twins, and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to
a family in Egypt, and is named 'Ahmal.'
The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him 'Juan.'
Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother.
Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal.
Her husband responds, *'They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal.'*

Ok... where's the cloakroom?
