Monday gone was my first ride this year. Yes late I know, but have had other more pressing things to do and the bike took last place. I had done the usual servicing at Easter time then parked the girl. Anyways come Monday morning I rode the bike out onto my driveway. It’s sloped enough to roll off the side stand and the centre stand is also on the brink to do the same. So I put in reverse and begin to back up to a level area, turning the front wheel to direct my path when she takes a nap on her right side 🤬🤬🤬. After calling for supernatural help I’m able to get it back up. It was a struggle as the gas tank was full from end of last season. I finally caught me breath, readied myself and left at 9:30am. After an hour my butt is starting to ache 😣 I do the usual move dancing around to find a spot that didn’t hurt even standing for a while to get blood flow back. After a while it settled down and so I thought great now enjoy the ride. Sadly that didn’t happen. My round trip took me until 6:55pm in the evening to complete for a total 720 kilometres (448 miles) I ended this trip in complete agony, barely able to walk after dismountig in my garage. It’s taken until today to gain relief in my derrière and lower back. Shoulders where good after two days, knees also. The trip was absolute torture, for a flagship motorcycle BMW put zero money into seat design. Add to this the top heaviness, high maintenance and I’m starting to rethink ownership. At closing in on 69 years maybe a CanAm Spyder is the way to go. No worries holding this heavy pig up in slow traffic and parking lots, giving myself a hernia and needing an arse transplant from this ridiculous seat. Anyways that’s my tale guys, just needed to vent. Safe riding and God bless you all.
