Welcome to the forum, slowpoke! Are you still in the military? I am stationed in Germany. Active Army. I went through AAFES to get my bike. I won't get it here(ETS'ing home to become a PFC) My bike will be home before I will, though. You can't always get what you want, but you usually get what you need. Anyway, glad you found us. Post often and we'll see you around. J.T.
