    BMW F650 GS (Blue)

    Hello, The wife thinks she wants to quit riding two up and we have been researching good low bikes capable of offroading and on. Through research it seems BMW made a 650 GS that was actually a detuned 800 from 09 to 13. Anybody have one for sale, any experience with them, any comments? Thank You. Uncle C.

    Aluminum Burnishing

    Quick question, I am redoing my old pontoon boat, new seats , carpet, etc. An old boy stopped by the little warehouse I rented and said you need a burnishing wheel, so I called my Snap-on guy, he didn't know where to get em, went to the parts store, no info. Anybody have the hot tip on buffing up old aluminum pontoons, not super shiny just less rough. Thank You, Uncle C.

    Covid, my experience,

    I wasn't certain but I was not scared to contract it. In turns out it is quite infectious, the entire household and the neighbors got it to various degrees.

    Covid, my experience,

    Thanks for your support, quick update . One thing they don't tell you is your teeth hurt as if you have a bunch of cavities or bad gum infections. 3 out of us 5 that just had it were in pain like that. Mine settled in my upper rear right molar, like a wisdom tooth coming in. It still aches. All good just weird. Cheers, I'm going back to physical outdoor labor today ( unless it snows to hard, dang Idaho) Unc C.

    Covid, my experience,

    Yep, as did the wife, daughter and brother-in-law (he happens to be a neighbor)

    Covid, my experience,

    Hey friends, I just thought I would share my experience to allay some fears that some of you may have. While I am a fatalist about whether I would get Covid and stated often that I was either going to get it or get a vaccine eventually. Well Sunday before last it was my turn, High fever while freezing for about 16 hours, couldn't warm up and no energy for 2 days after that, appetite was ok, no nausea, lots of muscle aches. Very similar to a flu/hangover/malaria. Lots of fun. Anyway 9 days in and I'm just about back to 90% good. By the way I'm 63 and have a history of asthma. I must admit I was spooked at first, now I'm glad I was careful but not crazy worried for months. A funny note, I tried a microbrew yesterday and it tasted like pickle juice, yum. While this post isn't really ride related I thought I could give back a little to this community by allaying some fears of fellow members, this is in no way meant to minimize anyone elses experience or make light of the illness. Just carry on, you most probably won't die from it and most likely can't avoid it, so ride on and be careful. Your friend, Uncle C.
