looks like "dances with wolves" territory
It does, doesn't it? It is amazing country-solitude and quiet as far as you can see and hear...
Just glad I didn't break down there!
AAA can save big buckeroos
Stunning photos! Thanks for sharing.
Most sorry to hear about the mechanical breakdown though. Hope you're rolling again soon (and not too exspensively).
It did. The first hundred miles were free. Unfortunately I had another 122 miles to go to reach home. There was a dealer about 65 miles closer, but in the end, I wanted the bike at Brown BMW in Pomona. (I guess that's a shameless plug )
Membership in the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America for $66/ year (Platinum upgrade) gets 100 mile towing and roadside assistance plus bunch of other discounts and the monthly Magazine is worth the price alone.
Their "Anomymous Book" is another benifical resourse I never leave home without.
Another shameless plug.
+1 on the report and photos!
So do you know yet what gave way? I've got an 1150GS too and am always curious about these things so I can have a little more data to work with should mine ever break. I've got 50,000 trouble-free miles (lots of it fully loaded on dirt) so far without a single mechanical or electrical issue.... I'm glad you got out on the dirt - it opens up a whole new world, doesn't it? I used to own a GS and an RT (plus a few dirt bikes) and the RT was not getting ridden, so it now lives with someone else who sticks to asphalt.
Good luck with the repairs!
Great pictures! Great story, till the end

It wouldn't have gotten you all the way home, but it would've helped
I have AAA in MT. $100.00 a year. I had to have my bike/sidehack hauled for 100 miles this summer the charge was $0.00.
Cheap insurance and safety net!
Great photos and it looks like you were having a really good time, up until the implosion. Good job on keeping your cool and keeping the bike under control as you slowed down.
keep us posted on what broke, I'm curios as to what let loose inside.
