You know what, I didn't ask but I don't think so. They do have the custom postmark shown in the video.

60+ degrees when I got home. Got out for an hour today. It was nice to get back on the bike.

Well I sort of road...made it about 500ft from the driveway when a big red triangle lit up my dashboard.  So instead of enjoying this absolutely beautiful upper 70 deg weather, I got to take care of this instead.

Took out the LT. First ride of 2018. First stop was the garage for much needed air. That rear tire was SOFT!  That’s weird. Then took back roads to the BMW dealer. Drooled over two new bikes. Maybe this year!  Then stopped for some BBQ and headed home. Started to rain and my highway shortcut turned into a parking lot. So I got to ride thru the capital city streets on a huge bike in the rain!  Good times.

Does straddling the bike as I move it from the basement back into the garage count?

If the motorcycle was moving while you were sitting on it and your feet weren't touching the ground, then yes!

I should have known there’d be a catch in there somewhere.  :(

I don't let wet or cold stop me. Snow ,slush, and ice does, but not cold or wet. Cold and wet might do the trick, too.

Really?  Switzerland?  The Alps?  Late Winter?  Looks like some kinda fairy tale land from here.

Hehe. Yes, that's Europe. Technically Germany. Right about here:
