I used to have to drive I80 from Lincoln NE to somewhere west. Driving an equipment truck there were times I couldn't get above 55mph due to head or quartering winds. LOL. Keep in mind that part of...

Traveling oil patch

You might want to re-think riding up 22 hwy in North Dakota. The truck traffic is brutal and dangerous. Read my post about
broken windshields up here. Your call. Ride safe.

I may be speaking out of school here,but when I bought my Garmin they told me the 100k topos are not routable. I took this
to mean I couldn't mark my route on them then transfer to the GPS unit.

Double what Crashmaster said. Don't worry, it's just different that riding in a car. Ride like they don't see you.
Take your time and when it doesn't go as planned, don't worry, carry on. Just...

If you drop South a little in Iowa and ride I80 West to North Platte NE then turn North on highway 83 to Valentine NE, it is

Boise to Bend

If you take highway 20, check out the store/gas station on the corner of 20 and 395. Go in the back corner and look at the
pictures on the wall. Really surprising what has shown up at that store!!

Riding with earbuds

Yeah, I like to ride with tunes. Kinda nice on the backroads and superslab. I don't use them when off road or when I really
need to pay attention, parking lots, in town, heavy traffic. I tried...

1200 vs 800

FWIW I traded my 800gs for a 1200gs. I lowered the 800 and still wasn't comfortable on the bike. The big dislike was
the 800 seemed buzzy out on the road, it felt like 70mph was all it wanted to...

Might be to far for you, but Engle Motors in Kansas City has always treated me fairly. I have bought a couple of bikes from them. Can't speak of their inventory right now, give them a try.

Resident Evil

BTW The chickee in Resident Evil did in fact ride a BMW. K1200R. She really looks better on a bike than I do.
When the zombies attack, I'm going to look her up. I need the 27 shooter

I've been looking at Delorme, Spot and a ham radio thingy because I ride alone

Off road course

IMO the 1200gsa is for round the world trips and some fire road, gravel road sort of riding. If you are going for a weekend or a week, look for a smaller bike. That GSA would be a royal pain to...

First Aid

Aside from aspirin, pepto and the like, an ex Green Beret told me the best thing to carry for first aid was 3-4 Kotex. They stop the bleeding and don't stick to the wound. That would be the extent...
