    I’ve often thought (pre COVID border closing) about riding down Hwy 219 through NY and PA as a nice trip through the small towns. How far did you ride it, and what did you think ?

    First picture for 2021 :D Managed to get out for 2 short rides so far & I had to stop at a Tims. Okotoks Alberta March 27th 2021


    Last time the bike didn't have luggage was when I rode it home from the dealer

    I bought this 2002 R-1150-RS with only 23,000-km on it, the end of Feb. one month after my hip replacement surgery. Picture taken in front of a Tim's at an ONroute after picking it up.

    This is my Second 2002 R-1150-RS. I sold my first one with 125,000-km on it in 2018 - had to sell it due to bad arthritis in my hip. Bought this one because I really liked my first one, it was in great shape, had very low km, and the price was very good. I appreciated how it was easy to work on and keep it in tune.

    Being optimistic that the replacement surgery will allow me to get back riding without the pain. Healing going very well so far.

    As you can see it's in excellent shape. Since taking this picture I've installed BMW Cylinder Head Protectors, replaced oil filter and all lubricants, spark plugs, checked & adjusted valve timing, flushed ABS brakes and clutch systems, balanced carbs, greased all electrical connectors, lubed cables, and all looks to be good.

    My brother has ridden it and said it runs great. It came with ABS and BMW Hard Side Cases, which my previous bike didn't have. It also has aftermarket Cee-Bailey windscreen and bar-ends that double as a throttle-lock cruise control.

    Looking forward to some nice weather to go riding again.

    Glad to hear that you are healing up and hopefully able to get on your new bike soon. It is always hard to hear of riders who have to stop riding due to health issues.

    Thanks!

    Healing is going well. The optimal hip replacement is via the anterior approach, and my surgeon typically only does that procedure. I had minimal pain, and was mobile the afternoon of the procedure. Released the next morning.
    Key to full recovery seems to be short walks 3 times a day, that increases distance as the healing progresses. Physio helps too with building strength and returning flexibility.

    My concerns are getting the strength and flexibility to the point where I can readily swing my leg over the seat and saddlebags. Even lifting my foot up off the ground onto the foot-pegs can be a challenge. I know I don't have the physical endurance I once had, so 12-hour rides are unlikely.

    Congrats on the bike & the healing :clap

    I've ridden 219 several times. Further south the better it gets. Can ride it for hundreds of kilometers.

    219 in Pa. is a great ride. That trip I only went to 6 and turned west. I have used it to get to Front Royal to start down Sky Line Drive.

    Frisk; you are correct about filling as much as I could. The R.E. has a flange/tube down into the tank about an inch and a quarter. To use that space at the top of the tank you have to finish the fill very slowly. I am tempted to drill a small vent hole just under the rim to alleviate the problem.

    After a spirited ride through the Slesse and Tamihi ranges...good way to cool off, in Abbotsford.
