EE bikes

Mike: sounds like an opportunity to jump-start that EE bike business, yes?

EE bikes

Your comment is right along the lines of my thinking when I read my email tonight and why I posted it: What if EE decided to answer that solicitation and given those parameters... What would an EE bike look and perform like?

Single cyl, 250cc?

Maybe start with the KTM 250 EXC (I'd prefer the 4 stroke version )

Man, all I thought about during the weekend was the 1200 GS. I don't even have my license yet and I'm already dreaming about my next bike. You are evil.

LOL-Don't dream small John-

With a KTM/BMW dealership you could cover the entire adventure bike market as well as the dirt bike and BMW street bike market!

Later you could add Triumph and Ducati! :p

"John Lee's Discount EuroBike Emporium"

Hmmm...add AI dealer and I'm there!

Handle Bar Moustache

"Motorcycles offered must be capable of being maintained commercially in Bolivia in locations away from the main urban areas...""

See?

John could open a repair shop in a remote rural area, grow a moustache, chew the cocoa leaf, raise peaches and coffee beans, marry a plump Bolivian peasant who will polish his Snap-On tools endlesslly... Wait, that would be a job for their children....
