weather factor is something I'm constantly analyzing.

2021 R1250GS's seem to be coming into showrooms at the end of October. 2021 Africa Twin not out till spring 2021.

Researching Gerbing heated clothing.

I wanted to spend two or more weeks riding locally before heading south and across. There is the 600 mile maintenance I need done.

I've been YouTubing how to lubricate and inspect final drive. remove wheels and fix flats.

The BMW definitely feels good and supposedly rides very well on the highway. Looks like out the door pricing is $26,xxx.xx. I just need to wrap my head around the expense.

No other bikes KTM (excellent off road), Ducati feel as nice as the BMW. Japanese bikes can't compare. I know all the complaints concerning Harley Davidson, but they are impressive but it's not the bike I want.

Anyway, waiting for dealers to call when bikes start rolling in and it won't be until I have to write the check that this will get real.
