    Condolences to the is short and we don't know if we get 20 years or a life expectancy of 78.74 years. I count everything after my 21st bday as "living on borrowed time" and a gift!

    You are right about that.

    I met Carmen through GSR while I was riding the 1100G and that bike always had problems that I had spent many hours and many dollars working on. He did a search for other bikes and then mapped out a plan to see a few. We got in my car and drove towards London, Ontario: well over a hundred miles. We looked at bikes along the way, finally deciding on the 84 GS1100GK, which I bought immediately. I had the plate from the "G" in the car, so it was bolted on the GK and I rode it home, while Carmen brought the car back.

    When I bought the Bandit a few years later, Carmen was the first person to see it.

    Many fond memories.
