So - how are you liking that ride?

R bike is impressive, a little louder, a little more sport riding position, much lighter and easier to get around town on.

I don't know that I'll keep it forever, but it's a blast to ride.

Oh, and a client just dropped off 20 pounds of venison and 30 pounds of wild pork. the breakfast sausage is pretty awesome, no fat in the skillet when you cook it. I should have some left to bring to HM.

I agree about it being a very fun bike to ride and the R bikes are much cooler to ride in the hot weather.

The Boxer Cup (R1100S) I had for a year or so.



I did a track day on it and had a ball- used ALL of the rear tire.



But for the type of riding I am doing now, Iron Butt rides, the semi-luxo barge R1200RT is a good tool. I feel kinda' like an old fart tooling around on a big upright bike, but this thing EATS the miles.



Oh yeah- Cathy REALLY likes it (most important feature, right?). The fact that it has a heated Russell seat and a topbox with a comfortable backrest sold her instantly.

So......164 days until HM and we show up on it. Very Happy

I was about to say see you on 81 - then I remembered that I'm eschewing the rigors of that interstate and taking back roads.

Look forward to seeing everyone!

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hi Jim and all HM-ers...

Hope everyone is looking forward to MAY as much as I am ... first however, we have to survive the coming New England winter onslaught.! This coming year on the trek south, Im going to do as Jim does (or will do ) and take only the back roads on my brand new ('09) G650gs... since it is NOT a highway flyer by any means, BUT I can get all the way to the peak of Mt.Cardigan and Mt. Kearsarge, or anywhere else the rabbits live. Dont know how long it'll take me and the "Thumper" to get from Newfound Lake to Hungry Mother..so will leave quite a bit earlier than usual. This May Im going to try to actually "see and meet people" along the way instead of simply blasting by at 6500rpm and leaving all in a trail of K-bike exhaust !!

Right now however... Im going to head home to my little village on the Bergstraße for a refresher course on whats it like to be a human being,, drink some wine,, laugh with friends,, remember who put the Christ in Christmas,, to which I want to wish ALL OF YOU K'OGers and your families, wherever you may be, a very Happy and Healthy Holiday Season.

See you in May 2018..../ Ernie in NH
(( soon Großsachsen adB, Deutschland ))

Hey Ernie,
At HM 6 or 7? Can’t remember (it was the year after Jen moved to Ca.) I did lots of back roads to Marion. 209 out of Kingston NY was great all the way to Pa. I tried to stay off of interstate highways.
We don’t care if you ride goat paths to get there!
I might be there with the new (to me) RT or on my iron butt K-RS
It will be here before you know it
