Ha, haven't blogged for a while and lo and behold, reading the last post. Dual Sport. Meet Storm, BMW F750 GS. GS in German stands for Gelände/Strasse which is "off-road/Street. I don't want to ride off-road but I certainly want to ride on dirt roads. Picked her up last week, my aging body has trouble mounting it but it rides like a dream. Despite the name, it's engine is 853 cc and that is more than enough power. Took it for its first proper longer ride, 114 km via the back way to Wee Jasper, then onto Yass and back along the Barton Highway to Canberra. Great weather protection with a few drops of rain. The low light was the huge flock of sheep being mustered along the road. Took me 10 minutes to filter my way through and the smell wasn't nice. Looking forward to the warmer weather !
Bushwalking & Geocaching a match made in heaven.
