We decide to head up one of the road outside of camp. This road goes to the Bandora mine. It starts immediately outside of camp, winding through a forest and bursting out on the mountainside about the tree line. There are a good bit of rocks and I find myself well ahead of Chris and wondering where he is. I eventually turn around and Chris is having bike problems, we decide to roll back down to camp.
Chris heads back to get some tools and I tell him I will take a quick run down the smooth dirt road to 550.
I feel great riding the bike in this crisp air, I decide to go further. I head up 550 back past Silverton and up to one of the higher points. My F800GS is running great but is lacking some power, seems fine though. On the way back to camp it starts to get dark and gets cold really fast, I casually flip on the heated grips… I love my BMW!
