Congrats on making it to your destination!!!

It's a definate achomplishment to say the least! Something to brag about and take great pride in doing...IMHO.

I can't help to think with all the flats etc, why you wouldn't think to install a front tube in your tire just to keep the front bead on the rim. It would have saved you so much grief. But as for the front shock, not knowing the BMW system at all.....it could have been a definate trip destroyer if it had actually completely let you down. It doesn't matter as long as you complete the ride and you did, so my hat is off to you....congrats!

Now....what is next? Keep the rest coming....we're still on the edge of our seats......

Then the big question is.....where are you planning to ride to next?

Just a suggestion, take a few motorcycle repair classes and learn some basic repair techniques....it will help you not only on the repair front but also on the mental side knowing you can fix some of the things that maybe you couldn't do beforehand.....not a negative thing at all.....

Eagerly awaiting the next installment.......
