Re: Well, it just had to be done =;-)

Today I actually got off work on time and the weather was great so I decided to rush home and take the 929 for a little spin. 350 kilometers later and now I'm back here happy to say I finally took the bike on the Ring (Nürburgring Nordschleife) =:-) I've done loads of laps in my car and other peoples cars, but until today I had shied away from taking the bike. Unfortunately, everytime I got to the 'have to do it' point, I would see someone on a bike get hurt pretty bad (or killed) or even worse someone I knew would get hurt at the Ring. Well, now I've done it and I have to say I'm very glad I did. It was quite a bit different on the bike, but already knowing the circuit helped. Now I just have to learn the different lines, bumps and slippy spots =;-) Anyway, just thought I'd share.
