I'm posting this for a friend. Dean Lear was the founder of San Jose BMW. Back in the day he did a lot of work with the BMW factory; his team has won at Daytona, he's run at Bonneville, he still provides some unobtainable stuff for various teams via the contacts he's built up over the years, etc. He's the real deal. After selling the business to Chris he moved here to the Phoenix area and then later built a totally off-grid place in Show Low, about ten miles from my place up there. He and Pam got tired of the long winters and moved to Ducktown TN which is about 30 miles from Tail Of The Dragon and 40 miles from Two Wheels of Suches, but Dean will tell you that there are much better roads back there then just the Tail.

Anyhow, he and Pam are getting up in age and want to make one more move that will get them back closer to family and they are looking at Cottonwood AZ which will put them about two hours away from me. Lower elevation than Show Low (so far less snow) and a great medical facility as well.

The ad is posted on ADV at: https://advrider.com/f/threads/meticulous-smokey-mtn-home-with-1032-sq-ft-garage-man-cave.1383472/

Or you can review it on Zillow as well: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/129-Wren-Ct-Copperhill-TN-37317/80385874_zpid/

I've been there, and Brenda and I spent two nights in the apartment over the garage. I can assure you that everything is just as he describes it in the ad, if not more.

If you've ever considered retiring back to that area of the country or if you have moto friends that already live back there, this just might be the place for you or them. They are in no need or rush to sell, so his price is pretty firm but I think it's worth every penny.

If you're an inmate over at ADV you can ask him any questions directly via that thread, but if not you can post them here and I'll relay it to him.

The photo shows my Wing in the garage and Brenda looking out over the property.
