How I Bought My New BMW Wide-ass Motorbike

I need to know where I can purchase a whale foreskin-lined adventure riding suit for my wide-ass BMW motorbike so I can show those poser KTM riders how it is done.

As well, I would like to buy pre-scuffed aluminum side bags so I won't actually have to "fall down" first to resemble a real Adventure Rider.

LowCal 250 Motorcycle rally, April 23, 2011

Well, I ended up coming in 11th out of 28! Not too shabby for my first motorcycle rally.

I also ended up with the distinction of riding the most miles.

Here are the results:
Thanks to my mom for provding short-notice assistance with 1120 points (280 points each for 4 people photographed inside the IB surfboard sculpures).
I headed due east to visit the Whistler Mudpots in Imperial. Then to Salvation Mountain. I snapped up points at Butterfield Ranch off the S-2 and decoded the Aztec calendar @ SDSU for almost 400 points. I bypassed Julian and made it back with 4 minutes to spare. Now THAT is cutting it close.
The wind was tough. It lifted a 500 lb bike off the ground. Rough stuff.
