Hello fellow enthusiast of two wheels. Just saying Hi to everyone, and thought what better way than to tell the story of how I ended up sitting in my garage dropping the engine to replace stator.



It all started when we moved to NorCal and my ride at the time a BMW 1100GS that my wife hated. I loved it, and put 30k plus miles on it the first year exploring Mt. Shasta, Lassen, and any twisty to the coast, but alone. Ok easy fix I thought, sell the 1100GS and get two bikes. The sales pitch to the wife was to get bike she would get on at no or little cost. Cool she took "hook, line & sinker", I get two bikes!



So very next day I'm at the local pizza joint chatting with the guys and mention I'm selling the 1100GS or would trade. So we all start chatting about what to trade for. We come to the conclusion that I needed a dirt bike to hit all those deer trails that I passed by on the 1100GS and a luxury cruiser for the wife. I knew as a kid I would ride a GW someday, so bingo that's it a GOLDWING. Ok now that I have that settled I can post on Craigslist for sale or trade. But the pitcher still had beer in it, so the craigslisting can wait till tomorrow.



This is where it gets cool, ten minutes later a guy (Bill) pulls up on a 2006 DRZ400E with aftermarket oversize tank, bark busters, small rack, pipe, nice setup for a guy to spend a day in the trees. So I introduce myself, only because it wasn't stock. Within 2 minutes I go back inside in disbelief, and needed to have one of my buddies double check with Bill that this was happening. Sure enough we all got a good laugh at the coincidence, but also could not pass on the fact it did happen. Bill also had a beautiful 1986 Interstate! So we sat inside and had lunch, 30 minutes later we shake hands to swap bikes for a couple of days.



This might be too long of an intro so I'll cut it short here because most of you already know the deal went through, and what I 'm going through to replace stator.



If anyone wants pic's or anything while I'm in hear please let me know.



Thank you for this site.
