Happy Birthday to Bridget The Beemer
2 years ago today, on Friday the 13th of April, 2012, I purchased Bridget, my 2012 BMW R1200 RT motorcycle. Since then, we have taken some great roads to places I've never been before. Among those trips, Highway 1 and 101 in California along the pacific coast, Beartooth Pass (3 times), Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park, Big Bend National Park, and many others. We've also ridden countless 2 lane roads in Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas. We've also ridden to visit my daughter, son in law, and grandkids in Wyoming at least 4 times. My daughter won't let them ride yet but they got to set on the bike. Maybe when they're 40 or so. She has always performed great and been a lot of fun to ride. Here are a few of my favorite pics from our first 2 years together.
I've promised her we'll still be together when she hits 100K on her odometer, she just keeps getting better the longer I ride her. So Happy Birthday Bridget, let's go ride.
