CAGB and BMW

October 08, 2014

Ten months since CABG, just a couple of days since grafting new brake lines on the BMW. I just completed a post on my Recovery Page looking back on the ten months since I toppled onto the floor and, like the leper playing poker, almost tossed in my hand. Well, it hasn’t been all exercise and self analysis since suffering the big one on December 9, 2013. In fact, here’s a photo of what I spend some of my time doing:

BMW-Shell

That’s an old service station in Lowell, Arizona, just a few miles from my home, that I used as a backdrop for my BMW and a spin around town celebrating another month since undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Graft  (me, not the station or the motorcycle). The station is being renovated, receiving gas pumps, Shell colors and nifty posters in the windows along with a car parked by the pumps. The Ford is…I believe…a ’54 that belongs to the owner of the Broken Spoke Saloon in Sturgis. The BMW K1200rs is mine, a ’98 with 94,000 miles on the clock. It just received a set of Speigler stainless wrapped Teflon brake lines so it stops better than ever. (Kinda like me: I received new fuel lines so my pump works better.)
