Never ride a bike you are not able to afford and how I aquired a GS

Submitted by on Sunday, 19 October 2008No Comment

I keep riding hard only stopping to get some hot cocoa and to stretch my cold legs. My electric vest never worked. Somehow during the trip the main connector broke. Regardless I had so many layers I looked like the Michelin mascot. The only weak point were my hands. Even with electric gloves and electric grips, my hands were still cold. At some point I try to stretch my throttle hand only to realized my pinky was not moving. It was frozen!

Finally around ten at night I made it to Hooters to see the fights. I had 5 layers on top and 3 on the bottom. When I sat down I took my balaclava off my head only to see the nastiest helmet hair ever. It looked like the picture of Nick Nolte when he got busted. I went to the bathroom poured some water on my head but nothing helped. Fortunately I had a beanie which I put on even though it was hotter than hell in that place.

The next day was uneventful. I took advantage of the big ass tank of the GS and rode two 250 miles stretches without stopping. I reached the top speed of the bike and it was like riding on a stream of air. I got home home tired but with a smile so big only a GS can give you.
