What's in my Garage? 1988 Honda VT800 Shadow, 2009 BMW F800GS
Riding on and off for last 20 years, but looking to get into some serious riding with newest bike!
Hey from Charleston, SC!
I have time on various rides from crotch rockets to cruisers over the past 20 yrs; have had a (mostly) trusty last 13 yrs with my '88 Honda VT800 Shadow, which is now nesting comfortably in a coccoon in front of my house. Furthest it's been with me is down to Florida, and up towestern NC/eastern TN and back.
No worries, though - just took ahold of the reins on a new 2009 BMW F800GS dual sport, even though I've only been able to putless than 100 miles on it so far (...getting COLD here lately, down to 35-degrees in daytime..) But I'm looking to change all that over the next few months while practicing for the Great Trek out West, up to Alaska and back. Looking to get around 10k miles (probably alot more by the time it's through) from the trip,along withlots of good stories & pics.
This is the third rider-oriented site I've joined since getting the Beemer. Just looking to gather good intel & insight from other riders on gear, routes, and stays before we complete the planning stageof this trip. Any suggestionswould be greatlyappreciated! Stay safe out on the Roads LessTravelled!
