Last weekend we finally got out on a ride together. First trip on the new BMW GSA, two up and loaded. The bike worked flawlessly. It carries the two of us very well, I don’t even notice the weight the passenger or panniers. We used a BMW GS on our south America trip last year, so wasn’t too new to either of us. Vicky cannot ride solo yet due to her knee injury now more than 3 months out. But I can say she is making progress. She worked all last week. Can walk way better than me. Just doesn’t feel safe on her own bike yet. It was hard enough to get her on the back of the big new BMW GSA for this trip. I think I have lost her trust in me for safety after my near fatal crash. I personally know the only reason I crashed was my fault of racing on a mountain road with uncontrolled traffic. Totally my fault, hopefully will not be so stupid again. And I have completely wrecked my left knee for punishment. I can ride however. It will be a bit before I can ride dirt. I have trouble standing and am in a lot of pain all the time. But hey at least I am on the bike. Making progress everyday.
