Vita Rara: A Life Uncommon

Return to Sanity Tour - 2003


Categories: | | | | | |

In August and September of 2003 I took my first long motorcycle ride. In March of 2003 I purchased a 1999 BMW R1100RT. My only previous motorcycle was a Yamaha V-Star 650 custom cruiser.

In 2002 I started reading a BMW sport touring discussion board BMWST.com. This story was originally posted on that site in about 18 parts, as I edited them for posting. I wrote this story as I travelled, then edited it and posted it on the BMWST.com site.

Please enjoy this tale. It was a transformative ride for me. My life gained a new focus and has been interesting since this ride.
