I guess I should have come here first. I jumped right in over in the modifications section seeking information on a few mods. So; time to say HOWDY from Fritch, Tx. Been riding since 1968 with a 20 year break from 1980 to 2000. Been making up for lost time since April of 2000 with over 360K miles logged on BMWs since then. The time has come for me to down-size so I am selling off part of the herd and giving serious consideration to the 700CTX. A friend let me ride his a couple days ago and it was a hoot. I really like the seat height as I am somewhat vertically challenged with a 27" inseam. Looking forward to learning more about these beasts to see if one might be in my future to help deal with gradually weakening hips and knees.
