    Looking for a new adventure, I have decided to put my R1200GSA, currently located in Heidelberg, Germany to good use. I have a friend from Georgia.

    Back to things motorcycle: I'm thinking to fly over to get the bike in Germany and after some local work, heading out there to her in Georgia. It would be a 3,000 mile ride there, as I plan to go south through Turkey. Once there I would tour around with her, see the country, rest up and......marry her.

    Of course, I will post the ride report (and wedding pics) here.

    So, do you think the R1200GSA is a good bike for this adventure, and what kind of oil should I use? I'm thinking of using my Marmot 3P tent for our honeymoon. Any other equipment I should bring?

    Duh! Ya think?

    I DO hope that the original post was in jest.

    Otherwise, I'll have to contact a certain gentleman on Hardtstrasse and tell him to lose track of your bike :evil

    Yes, Stefan would probably burn my bike rather than let me start that adventure.
