Better late than never, that's for sure!
Wow! What an awesome RR! Been spending the last week reading this, nice and slow, enjoying each word and picture. Thank you so much for bringing us along on your epic journey. I'm between bikes. Went from a f650gs (single) to a 97 r1100gs and now I was really concidering a Wee. Your journey also proves to me how great the bike is from a reliability POV. Do you have the ABS model? if not, do you wish you did? I'd really like to get the 2012-13 model because of the standard abs plus the other "minor" improvements that everyone seems to like, but funds are a bit tight. So I might go with a slightly older model.
Thanks so much for the great RR and wishing you a blissful, safe adventure!
