Randy, you would love this ride! I'm sure you'd like the 950 for the actual route, and the Tenere for the ride home! I think either bike would be fine if you get good weather, if its wet it would be a handful on either bike.

Thanks for the report ! I lived south of Sioux Falls through the 70s and rode all over the southeastern corner of the state . The picture of the BMW in the gumbo brought back memories . Several times I hit "drive at your own risk" roads during or after a heavy rain and had the gumbo build up enough to stall the engine with the mud rubbing against the high enduro fenders . I have had a few bumps in a trip , but your group definitely had more than your fair share ! In the olden days before fuel injection and all the electronics we could get almost any bike running good enough to get home on . Those days are gone . Have a great riding season !

I haven't heard a whole lot from him lately, I'm sure it will take another 4 weeks or more to heal up. I talked to his boss a couple weeks ago and he lives in South Dakota and he was going to take a trailer out and pick up the bike and take it to Chicago.

I enjoyed (with a high degree of sympathy) the first hand account of this ill fated trip from you and Hipster at DDSR. Definitely sounds like you had Murphy riding with you!

Bravo!

Really interesting reading and have to say that this is just a tremendous photo. There is something about the R 100 GS.

Thanks! I'm really a fan of them, they are great bikes! I think Ernie has over 120,000 miles on this one!
