On Tuesday (10/29) I drove down to LA to check out some bikes for sale. Ultimately I bought this BMW C650GT at New Century BMW. Of course, I’d driven the rental car there so I couldn’t bring it back with me. On Thursday, with a bit of logistics (drop Keira off at daycare, take a bus to LA, taxi to the dealer) I was back to pick up the bike. They spent a few minutes going over the controls and gauges with me, like you’d expect on any new vehicle and I was on my way back to Bakersfield. Yes I’m still stuck in Bakersfield.
It’s a 110 mile ride, 90 of which is freeway, so in less than 2 hours I was back at the RV park. I don’t know of any mountain roads near here, so I just rode around the city for a few more hours.
Best Bakersfield day by a long shot.
