I take it you like the screen you put on it. Keep the pictures coming.
You need to send this picture to BMW - absofrigginlutely awesome.
Joe the pics are amazing!!! Keep em comin
I'm a "Harley Fuck" and I would've stopped, even if you were on a BMW.
Awesome trip and even better pictures!
probly not even real Harley's, just chromed out jap bikes... A few sportbikes passed me too.
Glad to know someone would have stopped to help, even though I'm on a BM.
Back on the road after Marin BMW took good, fast care of me.
In-N-Out... Hmmmm good
Rad Baron - glad you like... With non-BMW accesories they wouldn't use it...
didn't realize you were headed back up north after death valley. i'm in SF and would loved to have hooked up for a beer... my brother (spenserj87) met up with you at A&S last week and i've been following your current trip since he linked me up.
btw, we have many of the same toys... GS, D90, MacBook Air... and definitely the same interest in travel.
keep the stories and the pictures flowing...
A most excellent report you've got going here. Thanks for taking the time to post it.
I dunno about the whole riders not stopping to help thing. I was broken down on the side of a busy road last summer on my airhead GS and several bikes, including an R1200GS, with hardly a glance.
Great ride report. I have a yellow 800GS I bought in December. I put the same windshield you have on it. I have been waiting to decide on hard luggage....how do you like the BMW bags? I bought the top case but am holding out on the panniers.
I also put a bigger skid plate, brake resevoir protectors front and back, brush guards on the hand grips, and replaced the stock tires with Metzler Karoos. I ride in new mexico and do highways to get to the gravel roads and trails.
I love that bike. Exactly what works for me.
Look forward to following your ride.
Awesome ride and report! Looking for to the Mexico posts.
+1 on that one and this one, too. Very nice. So the scotch took that picture. Actually, I understand that, having had my Macallans take a couple of shots
Glad youse guys like the photo's - it's all about the lighting... I must have drivin' my neighbors crazy with my SB-800 flash doing long exposures, muliple flash shots.... though the one you likey was all natual lighting.
Wish I'd have known, your brother told me of your travels - you are MY hero....
Freelancing can be stressful, but great, eh?
Ah, the freedom and the chaos...
I blasted through SF and am just south of Santa Cruz... I could take a day and head back north, would love to hear your tales and have a beer or two....
email me if you're around.
so far so good with the bmw vario bags... I'll let you know what I think AFTER I drop the bike on them....
frikin expensive campground, epic sunset, and I did get me first shower ( ahh the glory of a clean ... body) in quite some time + it's the first time I actually payed to camp since DV so it's a even wash... to make up for the $25 campsite I'm eating 75¢ Ramen tonight - like in college.
I passed on the ridiculous $8 a bundle firewood, with no where to scavenge...
After talking with my Dad I'm really in no hurry to ride home to -20F temps with blowing snow... the ride home is gonna be brutal...
I might be 30 something years old, but being away from home for 7 months takes help...
This journey wouldn't be possible without the support team at home to help me along - shipping stuff, scanning mail, fending off the sherriff with warrants, etc. thanks Dad! you rock!
Everyone thank Big Larry for his support of my crazy adventures!
until next time, take care, goodnight, and for crists sake neuter your pets!
If ur pawnin it, I'll take that F2.0 Leica off your hands.
And btw, I realize you are way past that now but here is the route for the two death valley day rides taken from my Zumo 550 tracks:
All together now: THANKS BIG LARRY!!
You must be at Alice's...great roads around there, if you don't mine the deer .
I need more salt
Great report, beautiful pictures.
Enjoy the time off, doing tours takes its toll. (I never had the stones for it)
Riding is more fun than working anyway!
Great report. It was a pleasure riding with you in Death Valley. You and that 800 are a good match. You sure put it through its paces.
wow, great ride report so far. I'm still waiting for the F800 info (I didn't miss it, did I?).
What's your GPS?
