Thumb Riding Comrades Route on "New" F650GS

So I haven't introduced myself as yet (rude sod am I ) and have spent quite a few hours drooling over the beautiful machinery parked in the garages of my (now) fellow members and gaining some very helpful information prior to my purchase. I would like to say thank you to the site owners and members who have made this experience a really memorable and relatively painless one.

Having decided to invest in a trusty steed for pure unadulterated riding pleasure I was a bit unsure of what to pull the trigger on but had an idea. Anyhow, cut a long story short I got myself a lovely '03 F650GS which continues to grow on me day by day. So much fun...

On Sunday I decided to take her out for an inaugural ride. What better route than the legendary Comrades Marathon Route up to Pietermaritzburg along the old road. A beautiful serpentine (albeit a bit in disrepair) road which winds majestically through the valley of 1000 Hills.

The bike has every bit lived up to its reputation of fun and smoothness and I look forward to many more miles and an adventure or two.

Hoping to contribute a little by sharing my experiences with all of you.
