Edelweiss Alps Extreme 4AE1201 – Day 2

I stop to smell the flowers yet again.

Himbeeren cake with an early morning coffee.

You exit the underground and see this…

Yep, I did this. More to come as I sort through 3,000 pictures… 😀

The Bambit is gone! Long live the Bambit!

Fare thee well!

We’ve been through a lot. It was my second bike that I bought in 2005 to replace my GS500E, twice the horse power and all that lovely Bandit midrange torque and sound. I’ve had it out to the Cabot Trail in 2006, my very first multi day tour, then collided with a deer on it in 2007 putting it into the garage with tweaked forks and missing fairing, and me into the hospital courtesy of the ambulance. I put it back on the road last year at the urging of my good friend Willie, and parted company with it this year as the DR650E is the new love in my life. I’m down to two bikes in the garage now, one of which is powered by pedals. 😀
