Title: BMW club 100K ride
Post by: gragravar on August 07, 2010, 08:59:25 PM
today was the annual BMW club 100K ride - a ride that goes over mountain passes that total to 100K vertical feet.  the route changes every year.  this years route was 510 miles, plus 35 for me to get to the start from home and 43 to get home from the end point - thats 588 miles on the streetfighter for you math impaired. 

Jack and Jay both joined me for the ride, made it like an RMCB5 ride.

our route:

at the starting point - my F1098-S, Jack's Speed Triple, and Jay's F800ST

Sorry, thats all the pics I got we spent the rest of the day riding hard.  we covered the 510 miles of the ride itself in a little under 8.5 hours.  doesnt sound like much when you think of it in interstate terms, but this was mostly twisty mountain roads.

Thanks for posting Andrew. The only picture I took was of my mileage when I got home. Lame huh.  Definitely a great ride. For some reason I am unable to firmly grasp anything with my hands today. :D

It was a great day.  I will get my pics up once I set up my computer.  Still in its box, been too busy with moving and house repair stuff to set it up.

Was a great day.
