My fourth and current "ride" is a 2002 BMW 1150GS. My first bike was a kawasaki kx80 that I got when I was 12 years old.I rode that around the neighborhood until it died than bought a honda xl350 when I was 16 and rode that until "finished" than went onto the Kawasaki KLR 650 which I had for 10 years and thru my first trip to Asia.
750 km, from Siem Reap to Ban Lung. A beautiful ride.
Im wearing a cooling vest that goes under my Aerostitch Darien Riding Jacket. You charge the vest by immersing it in water, absorbing up to a gallon. As the water from the vest evaporates inside my jacket, it creates a cooling effect. Works pretty good.
