Show of your goodies in this topic ladies!What do you ride, do you name your bike, what adjustments did you do to it, tell us all about your favorite Big Bike ! I'll start with my BMW F 650 GS Dakar, named Grasshopper I started offroadriding with the BMW F 650 GS Dakar. In the beginning all went fine because we only did modest or soft offroad with our big bikes. But then we took an offroadtraining with it, my husband with his BMW R1100GS and I with the Dakar. It went to fast hardcore for me, and I couldn't keep up. There was a patch of dirt that no matter how I tried, I was not able to get through it. I probably fell 25 times in that one patch of dirt and lost all my selfconfidence that day. The instructor drove me to the asphalt and after getting my bike back, he kinda stated that I did not had what it took to ride offroad with big bikes. I should go with the cross or lightweight models to pitch up with my husband.This really got into my head and I almost got to the point where I was going to say : I am NEVER riding offroad in my life again. Luckily my husband doesn't take no for an answer, and he got me back on the Dakar, trained me, pushed me and got me to the point where I am now. Ever since the offroading with the Dakar slighty improved, my hopes and dreams only got bigger. I silently dreamt of my own R1100GS and when my husband let me ride with his 1100 during an offroadride, I did not want to give it back to him. ;-) In october I bought my own flat twin GS. Hyperion is a R1100GS from 1994 and had 147 000 km on it when I bought it. I have full confidence in that he will take me everywhere to see the world and explore what our earth has to show. He had Wilbers suspension front and back and a set of R1150GS Panniers and pannierrack attached. They are my first pannierset ever and I do like this. I don't ride the car, so I had to do groceries with my backpack before, so the panniers are heaven. I can even bring more than 1 bottle of wine with me at a time ;-)... So, this is him when he first got home. I know he doesn't look like much, but he is mine, and I love every inch of it. And this is us, during our first modest offroadride.
