Riding along the coast

Could you imagine owning that bike for 9 years and only putting 4400 miles on it? Wow, nice find!

WUMPA is one of the units that has me jonesing for one so bad it ain't funny! If you get a chance lookup the build done on an FZ1 in Forida, that too, is SWEET! He has a video of him throwing her sideways on some dirt roads down there that is AMAZING! Oh yeah, the guy that built and RIDES THE WHEELS OFF IT has no legs, big time kudos to him and his love of life! Yamaha FZ1 dual sport sidecar build, is the build to find it.

YES, a sidecar is in my near future, whether mama knows, or rather, has listened is beyond me!

Like Drone, I find travel in the hack both limiting and liberating. I kept my 2 wheeled GS for those times when I just want to rocket down dirt roads and forest trails...but long distance adventures have been completely transformed by having my furry companion by my side.

I couldnt....lol....I have only had it for 2-3 months and have nearly doubled that mileage....It would be more but it needs new tires, had downtime for fuel fittings breaking, a fuel leak at the o-ring by the fuel pump/filter and now has been down for a seized starter. Rebuilding the starter today and ordering tires...Then the real mileage can start

I dig the look you two seem to be giving to each other.

Outstanding, thanks.

Almost...this was done using the time honored "hang-a-GoPro-from-a-lanyard" technique. Then I set the GoPro to 5s intervals, and fire away. In this case, the technique worked well - good to see the BMW logo, no tank bag on top, has a nice autumn & rainy feel to it.

Here's another execution from a trip over the summer - tank bag and GPS are mounted, the GoPro is at a slightly different height, nice bluebird day, and it gives you a different feel. That's Mt. Rainier on the left.



Two key things about the lanyard technique: 1) need to think through the length where to maintain the GoPro for camera viewing. In my case, I just used a shoelace and adjusted the knot where the GoPro would rest. 2) Since the GoPro is just dangling there, it will sway back and forth as you do turns. Sometimes you can get a cool effect, sometimes it's all blurry. Depends on the lighting.
