I am recently widowed, and some friends talked me into an R1200 GS Adventure to use as part of finding a new life. To me there was something very powerful about the call of a motorcycle and the possible adventures that it represents.
So, my Adventure is supposed to be deliverd this week, and I can hardly wait. I did my MSF classes last weekend and bought a KLR 650 to use as a learning bike. I assumed that broken Kawasaki plastic would be a lot cheaper than broken BMW plastic.
I took my first highway ride yesterday, and it was probably the first time I have smiled with total sincerity since my wife died. I made some mistakes, but wow, this is the place to be!
