Re: How Far Is a Ride ?
Different for each person of course.
Whe I was riding the LT I got into LD, so my opinion of a "ride" for me was a whole lot different than it may be for someone else.
When I lived in San Diego, and rode with the San Diego BMW group most weekends, a ride was usually about 4-6 hours, and since most of it was in the mountain twisties, mileage would vary considerably. If I was riding to somewhere out of San Diego, it was usually all day, many times 12-17 hours.
I know other riders that think 3-4 hours total is a long ride, even if they stopped several times during it. I would silently snicker to myself, but I was not on their bike, doing what they like to do. I was falling into the trap of putting my ride above theirs, when they enjoyed theirs as much as I did mine.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
