Alps Ride - Bikes and Gear

BMW F800GS: my ride for the next couple of weeks. Less grunt than the ride at home, but lighter and more nimble, making it a great steed for Alps twisty's. Super-wide panniers are mounted, a hazard to pedestrians, oncoming traffic, and me. 'Can carry a lot, and knock a lot down if I ride too close to the lane edges. 

Switched from Harley to BMW this year, which means the old riding gear visited eBay, and new riding gear from BMW appeared on my credit card...waterproof leather, how cool is that? Motorcyclists, as a group, I think, are a vain bunch, lookin' good is important.   Full-face helmet, something I haven't worn since college. 

Camera is 'gear' too...Canon S95, works great, and most importantly: fits in my pocket.  Takes pocket-sized photos.  

Next up: the crew.
