I just had to post this up...

So I get a phone message from a friend of mine who spent the weekend on a track in OK. He's no slouch of a rider, and has a big burly K1200RS. He called to let me know he got passed on the track by a...

1) Girl...
2) ...on an EX500!

Given that I am
1) a girl...
2) who has an EX500
it totally made my day!

Go Ninja!

I take it the RS model doesn't have the hard bags? That was my first thought, I couldn't help but laugh thinking of someone dragging luggage in the turns :p.

Score one more for the little gals and guys.

It does have hard bags, and there are some hilarious pics of him all loaded up with 2 weeks of camping gear, scraping it around the turns on the street on his way from TX to the Grand Canyon/Tahoe last year. The bags, of course, come off for the track. I think he wrote a story for the BMW owners mag about that trip and it's going to be published this spring.

Oh, if you're talking about links to my friend's pics and article, there aren't any. Maybe I could find the pic though. If so I'll post up. I don't think the article is out yet - think it comes out in April or May. I'm not sure how to get my hands on one, not being in the BMW "club..."
