Cool hat Andy, Thanks!!!

Now I have a Target hat AND a Felker hat, I'm one stylin' tile gal!

BTW, I really like Freddie Felker's motorcycle setup, maybe I could get a little trailer like that and pull it behind mine. Naaaaaaa...it would slow me down.

Yeah I wore my new hat on an interview today.

Guy axes me just how much I really know about tile, cuz he's got some gigs comin' up he could pass along for a cut.

I say "How do you like my cap?"

He says "I noticed it's new, is that your company?"

I nearly laughed and replied "NO. How much of a cut do you really want?"

Frank, I have a BMW R1150 RT set up for Sport touring (mainly the sport ). But I've had just about any kind of twin engine motorcycle, yes, even a HD Fatboy (but it was way too slow). Now my only Fat boy is my husband

Todd, yeah, I could get an old sidecar rig as you suggested. If I got one of them big Tilemasters it would help weight my rig down so as I'm whippin thru the turns I don't pick up the 3rd wheel as much

I bought my BMW in 1998, I got one of first cruisers brought into the U.S. It's a great bike and pretty nimble for it's size. I'm wheeling & dealing on the new BMW "Rockster" now, it's a cross between the R1150R and the R1100S, more R than S. 6 speed and handles great in the twisties. After the rockster I'm only buying 1 more

Colleen , a few years ago i ran into a guy on one of those big honkin BMW enduros.Very nice bike but it seemed a little out of place halfway up a big rock hill alongside a blueberry patch!!

I used to run full dress bikes and have had a few,but i havent ridden in about 6 years
The day is coming though.Gonna get me one of them big Goldwing 1800's and go back to Ceoure D elene for a visit.(dont bother ,i'll never ever spell it right )

Todd,

Which colour, blue, yellow, or red? I have 2 riding gals that have em and they're a lot faster than the slowwww 1500's. Plus the 1800 Gwing could haul a saw in the trunk, tools in the side bags. And, you'd have reverse to get out of those tight spots in the Dairy Queen parking lot

Frank, I'm kinda eyein the new RS1200 GT like the HP but I know I'd really turn into a and I'm getting older ya know.

I guess we should get back to tile stuff
