This is about the most profound reading I've ever done on the internet. This ride report has infected my daily thoughts. I gave up my beloved 1098 to get a R1200GS so my 9 year old daughter and my wife can go riding with me. I will be back on a Ducati when I can afford to keep the GS and have the Ducati.
I think very few people understand how motorcycles can become a way of life. This report captures what itís like to live and breathe motorcycles day in and day out. Pure sport bikes and dirt bikes are my favorite because there is little there that doesn't absolutely need to be. There is truly nothing better than being one with the machine and it becoming your companion, almost transcending being an inanimate object. Thank you for the time and commitment it took to document your trip.
