Back in Nov 2008 I embarked on a long awaited journey to ride from Texas to South America.
When I started my journey my 1995 R1100GS had around 429k miles on it. Everyone advised me not to that my trusty GS but, I did. I put the GS through some serious punishment at times as I crossed the mountains and altiplanos of Peru and Bolivia. And even in Patagonia I had one nasty crash but, The GS marched on.
The total trip was 19,200 miles, just shy of the 450,000 miles mark I knew I should have gone on to Brazil!). I finally rolled to the 450,000 mile mark.
Now its time for me to make some money so that I can ride the rest of the world, of course with my Trusty GS!
