Snow on the Roof
I have lusted after a Bumble Bee since I first got into dualsporting six years ago. Actually since I first started riding six years ago. I finally found one in excellent condition and jumped on it. It took over a month to pry it out of the PO's hands. He has a fetish for making things perfect. I had no complaints. The bike is a jewel with less than 30,000 miles on it. It spent nearly 12 years in dry storage and was then pretty much restored to like new condition.
My first ride was from the streets of Seattle 350 miles east on highway 2 to my home north of Spokane. True love! This is by far the most fun bike I've ever ridden and compares very favorably with newer DS bikes. The only thing I've replaced was the original seat. After that long first ride my butt was sore. I've replaced it with the used Corbin shown in the photo. Heavenly.
I ride it every chance I get. The new TKC70's match my needs perfectly; 70/30 street/gravel. Highly recommended. The whole bike just feels right. What more can I say?
The prices for these R100GS' are going up fast as more people realize just how much fun they are. Glad I got mine when I did. I'll be passing this one down to my kids some day. It's that good.
