After it was raining the whole week March is now approaching more than 200% of average rainfall. We came back from Maui into the most messy week here. Rain, rain, rain.
But today it finally got better and so we decided we take the bikes for a spin. Andrea on her "new to her" F650GS and I was riding the DR200SE. The little one needed to be ridden to not clog up from the bad gas here and Andrea also wasn't sure with the wet roads and her new bike whether she might want to swap during the trip.
So I took the little bike and had some fun! We were going pretty slow as it was still wet in most places, up in the mountains there was a lot of washed out dirt and mud on the roads, so caution was very appropriate.
This was the route:
Of course we stopped at Alice's Restaurant for some Hot Chocolate.
And of course, Andrea was doing just fine with her new Beemer - probably also because of the heated grips and the better wind protection ... I was actually pretty happy that I put the liner in my jacket but my hands were still really cold when we got home.
It was a good trip and Andrea loves her new bike. Quote: "This is soooooo easy to ride ... it's amazing."
