    Smile Some DVD Karma

    Seems it's been a while since we had any karma threads here.

    I was looking through some CDs and DVDs looking for one in particular and came across not one, but two copies of the BMW Motorrad 30 Years of GS DVD. One is stil nicely shrink wrapped and has never been enjoyed and is feeling a bit neglected. So, I've decided to send it off to some lucky soul to allow it to fulfil it's destiny and to (hopefully) gain some karma in return.

    If you want to get in, post a positive reply of some sort (be creative if you wish), all such replies will garner an entry into the draw to be done in two weeks time (September 19th). Lucky winner will get the DVD all expenses paid.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    The old footage of Gaston Rahier on the big Paris to Dakar beast is worth the price of that DVD. It is truly spectacular. How a man of such small stature could manhandle that beast is truly impressive. I have seen the actual bike and it is chest high on me, and I'm just shy of six feet tall. Huge motorcycle.

    I struggle to herd my little R-80G/S around graded roads in the local desert, trying to keep the bike upright and the front tire pointed in the right direction in even mildly loose stuff. Mr. Rahier was doing 100 mph on looser stuff where no road existed and makes it look easy. I can only shake my head at my own sorry lack of skill.

    It is exhilerating to watch, and demoralizing at the same time. Still, well worth the price of admission.
    Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    I can't afford a GS right now. Perhaps I can find some forks for my too low geared R65 and roll my own GS?
