... if the oil change interval is 25,000 miles but the hubs blow at 16,000 then they are, in fact, hubs that never need an oil change. See how that works?

Just like the Chevy Vega was designed to never need new tires.......

A new Beemer GS. You mean that there will be a new BSA Gold Star? I suppose that you remember that a "Beemer" is the nickname for BSA.

How's the weather down there? I'm going to ride down on the Triumph for Spring Break, hang out a couple days. I'm nervous it'll be cold (last week of March).

It's been a bit cold & rainy, but really not bad. TRADITIONALLY, there's a big snowstorm around the end of March that dumps a couple of feet on us, yet melts off in two days - but that hasn't happened the last three Winters. I think we're just-about out of the "freezing rain" crap. I'd say less than 50:50 for snow & ice. Or even temps below the high-40's during the day.

C'mon down - still have a guest room open. (that is, unless I'm up THERE fetchin' the PC, but that shouldn't take more than a few days)
