    I never really thought of my bike, or any BMW for that matter, as a cow. But if it gives that impression, OK.
    Jeff, for Non-German-Speakers it isn't easy to follow, I know.
    You will often read, as already mentioned by Hans, Q for the BMW.
    In german "Q" sounds equal as "Kuh" (Cow).

    The whole story you will find here (as a german lesson) ;-) -> http://forum.gs-forum.de/viewtopic.php?t=1206
    Something I did notice about German is there are no commas (,) in your sentences. Instead, there are capitalized words to seperate ideas. Am I correct about this?

    Berlitz help me!

    Not at all! The rules of orthography are sometimes
    "out of order" in the internet. The usage of commas
    is very complicated regulated in german, so nobody
    regards it here.

    The usage of capital letters is really characteristic for
    the german language. All what seems to us to be a
    "main word" gets an upper case letter at first (all
    proper names, things, etc.).

    Recently there are efforts to make these rules "easier".
    One orthography reform hunts the other. Our kids
    at school are really confused. And the older people,
    who can't follow all these reforms (like me) feels
    like coming from an other century (as it is). ;-)

    Regards Ron

    Hi Jeff,
    If you were really interested in the German language, it would be the best for you to buy yourself a German language software for a few bucks at Comp USA or Best Buy.

    German is not an easy language to learn because of the different rules.
    Like Ron already said, with the new regulations in the resent years, I’m an old fart too.

    One example: “Kohlenstofffaser” (carbon fiber)
    Have you ever seen a word with 3 of the same letters in it? The first time I’ve seen it I thought it was a misprint.

    Sincerly: Hans

    I do like the way it runs a whole buch of words together to describe something. Like "heizgriffe" (heated grips) and "kreuzspeichenraeder" (cross spoked wheels).

    This is gonna be fun learning y'alls language.

    FWIW, if you wish to see me in action and where I work, click on

    Go to the photo section and select service department. I'm the geeky looking one. :P

    Hi Jeff,

    Also from the other side of the planet: "Welcome"!

    Well, German language is not easy indeed. There are not only words with 3 of the same letters in it but also parts of sentences with 3 of the same word one after the other. :shock: Example: Das waren die, die die Mopeds gestohlen haben.

    But don't worry, learning Chinese is even more difficult - because you cannot read anything. Every character has a meaning. Put two characters together and you get a different meaning and if you switch the characters you get a 3rd meaning. :roll:

    Cheers!

    Hi Jeff,

    In the group photo, I'm the guy with the "thumbs up". I am also the guy in the sidecar. My co-worker, Austin, recently broke his leg and his ankle on a test ride. We both came around a U-turn. I was on a K1200LT and he was on a R1200CL. He hit a greasy spot in the road and lost the front end of the bike. Both are big, heavy touring rigs. I was being extra careful because I was hungover . We did the U turn and he wasn't behind me anymore. I waited because the bike he was riding came in with running problems. When I turned around, the EMS was already there to take him to the hospital.

    Luckily, he was smart enough to take his cell phone and call for help and call me as well. He has German ancestors so it was no surprise to me that he was well prepared (I'm Irish so go figure :twisted: ). Anyway, he is going back to New York to recover.

    Thanks for reading my story.
