Well… The time has come. Thumper is sold. A little less then a year and I loved every day of it. I couldn’t have asked for a better *first year riding. The little asterisk is because I actually rode for 6 months when I was 17 but we won’t count that.
This bike has been perfect in NYC. Perfectly light weight to learn how to properly maneuver Manhattans craziness. Perfect suspension for it. Great for Sunday rides. Loved every minute.
Thanks so much for being so reliable and fun. So happy we documented so much of this together. Hope you enjoy your new owner. He seems like a cool dude. Tune in next week for some potentially exciting news on the city gs front.
It’s starting to get nice out. Red Hook.
The snow begins. It’s covered under a porch but it’s still getting nicely dusted.
Commute from brooklyn to manhattan and back to brooklyn, on a BMW G650GS Motorcycle. some snow on the ground. Recorded with Sony HDR-AS30 using a sony handle bar mount. Ocean Parkway, Prospect Expressway, Battery Tunnel, West Side Highway. video played back in higher speeds through out.. 1x, 2x, 3x, and 4x.
Snow Day. My first time rolling tires around in the snow. Leaving my driveway was intense, mostly ice and otherwise snow. Parking in manhattan in several different areas, backing in and out of snow. Roads were mostly clear, with a few little snow patches here and there. Overall fun fun.
she sits lonely waiting for me.
