I did it...I finally bought a motorcycle.

2001 BMW F650GS Dakar to be exact. I couldn't resist the patriotic color scheme. There are a lot of cool roads in the area to explore. Here is a pic from a quick trip up to the mesa. Don't worry, I didn't throw my girlfriend off of the back...She is only taking a nap.

Nice! If I ever get a motorcycle it will be a BMW dualsport.

Re: I did it...I finally bought a motorcycle.

I will be in Zion the entire week of Thanksgiving with my SMB and my BMW 1200 GSA. Would love to get together and do some riding. Are you going to be around?

I would love to meet up with you and do some riding. However, I think I am actually going to be up traveling myself...I have the whole month of November and December off so I was thinking about heading up to Portland to visit some friends.

Nice ride, congratulations!

Looks like she's wearing Avon Distanzia's? Excellent street tire and ok for dry fire roads, just don't take them into mud or any serious dirt.

Actually they are Metzler Tourances...I'm looking at some good enduro's but these should last for a while.
