Hi All,
I've been riding Rocinante for 25 years. She's a Europe spec 1989 K75RT.

Longest trip was when I bought her in Germany in 1996, went 7,000 km through Scandinavia and then down to the Alps before shipping home. Now I also have an F650 but my true love is this one!

I try to do all my own maintenance and have learned a lot from the folks over on Motobrick which seems now to be no longer in existence. I've lurked here before but now signed up. Now all I need to figure out is how to post photos directly here.

Motobrick Orphan from North of Superior 177912 You need five posts before you can put up pics. It's a bot-beating exercise.

Ha! I've been caught out as a bot.

I did a similar trip about five years before you without the Scandinavian bit as I ran out of time.  

I'm guessing those 7,000km took you about a week as it sure is easy to rack up the miles on these bikes with all the good roads in Europe.  

My baby's coming up for her thirtieth this year  Very Happy  I also have a F650GSD.  

Welkom.

Motobrick's absence was probably the result of a light-gravity episode in space-time of the Northern Lake Superior region. Its existence is still online right now.

Welcome! The Motobrick was getting a server swap and is now running on a twin turbo upgrade punched out to 440 cu.in.

I'm only getting Error 404 Server Not Found

Anyway, my trip was Frankfurt -> Kiel ->ferry -> Gothenberg -> Oslo ->Stockhom -> around the Baltic Sea to -> Helsinki -> ferry -> Stockholm -> back down to Germany (there must have been another ferry there someplace) -> Nurnberg ->Munchen (where she was born) -> up into the Bavarian Alps, via Innsbruck then up into Switzerland and around the Lake of Konstance -> Freiburg - Frankfurt -> Hamburg where the built a shipping crate and put her on a boat and I picked her up in Toronto about three weeks later.

The trip took a leisurely month.

I realized that she'd do more than 200 km/hr! (with full fairing and all the luggage which is, apparently, verboten).
