I flew back to Denver this morning.

Planning on renting an apartment in Plano at DNT & Parker Road for a while as I figure out where I want to land longer term.

On the upside, I saw a 1299 Panigale in the parking garage yesterday.

Looks like I'll have a pal in the office!

funny, I just flew back from Denver last night.  When you return feel free to pm your number.  Downtown Plano is nice and not a bad choice until you gather your bearings on your preferred area.  As for dealers, I suggest using only AMS Ducati Dallas.  Mark likes the Plano dealer but many of can attest they like the Beemer crowd and treat Ducati as second class and make you wait, wait, wait and wait some more.  IMO, no distance is too far to get top quality service and the guys at AMS will leave you impressed - drop my name and maybe you'll get free harassment included  laughingdp

That was my impression as well.

Welp, I need to get a minor cosmetic issue resolved on my 996SPS due to the move.  Should be a simple matter, but we'll see how long that takes to go through the claim process with the moving company.

Once I get that resolved and the temps cool down a bit, let's ride!  Dolph

What a hassle! Good luck with that.

We should be crawling out of our summer slumber in a month or so.

Actually, turns out it was worse than I thought.  Both front turn signals were damaged, actually, the CF intake runners were.  Going to be an expensive repair for them.

The moving company is paying the damage right?

Yes.

Here's were the problem came from.  My stuff was loaded onto a box truck, transferred to a moving truck, transferred back to a box truck and delivered.

Was the bike "loose", or did you crate it (like the OEM does) for transport?

If I was going to have anyone (other than a dedicated motorcycle transport Co.)
move one of my bikes I'd go by a dealer and get a used crate.

Dealerships usually have piles of them and actually have to PAY people to dissasemble and scrap them.

I hope your issues get resolved quickly.

It wasn't crated.

I had moved motos (one once and 3 twice) on other relos without crates or any issues.

They didn't want to pay for the crates (for this or my Felt road bike), so they get to pay to fix it.

Life goes on.

I should be legal soon.  Just got the state inspection completed and moving related repairs taken care of.

Hopefully the weather will be cooling off soon.
 
Looking forward to a ride soon!

I finally got the starter back into my bike so I am up and running just in time for winter to set in! If it looks like we'll have a good day let's try and meet up.

Cool.

Saturday looks great, but I'm going to the NCAA DII National Championship game as my alma mater is playing for all the marbles.
