she's all mine
For a little over two years, I’ve been on the back of Panagiotis’ bike marvelling at the world as it races by. I’ve had the great fortune of getting lost in my thoughts & the ever changing scenery, all whilst relaxing & enjoying the ride.
But for the past two years, I’ve also had a longing….
Ever since we sold my MT03, I’ve missed it. Granted we had good reason to sell that thing. I was in a cast for 6 months, & for a good 4 of those months I had screws holding my foot together. A little more than two years after my accident, I still hurt all the fucking time. & up until a few months ago, my foot couldn’t support the weight of the bike to even get it off the kickstand. So yeah, we had good reason to sell my yamaha, the poor thing would have been left to rot in the garage all this time.
Still… I missed it.
So 6 months ago when Panagiotis casually mentioned that in a couple years he’d buy me a bike, I did a somersault in my head & said “YES PLEASE!”. I hadn’t been dropping hints if you’re wondering. Nor had I been whining about it incessantly. He could just see the love in my eyes every time we passed a bike or watched a video & realised I needed to be on my own two wheels. He’s preceptive like that.
& seeing as I’m a brat, I immediately started looking at used bike ads to try & calculate just how long I would have to wait before he made good on that offer.
Any way, to cut a long story short, I hawked some jewellery I couldn’t give a toss about, pitched in half the cash & his offer materialised before my eyes.
& she’s BEAUTIFUL!
My pretty girl is the 2010 F650GS. Don’t be confused by the name either, that sexy little lady packs a whopping 800cc (798cc if you want to be pedantic)… & she’s everything I dreamed about.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t happier than a pig in shit. I’ve gotten to take her out practically every night this week & it has been dreamy. I can’t wait for my first big adventure with her.
Any way, I’ll post some videos once we figure out camera placements now that I’m not on the back & pointing at whatever takes my fancy
