Today was all about the meetups. I had planned on visiting Navythomas8 (NT8) in Omaha since last fall, and it was good to see him again. I also had a surprise email last night to meet up with another Youtuber in the area “Really2Ugly” (R2U). I made ride from Lincoln to Omaha this morning to meet up with NT8 after short blast down I-80.
We had a good time shooting the breeze, and then met R2U for lunch. Fun times.
After lunch, NT8 insisted I ride his brand new BMW G650GS Sertao. How could I argue? The pink crash bars match my black riding gear. lol.
His BMW on the left, and his KLR on the right. He’s just transitioning from his KLR650 to BMW. He has been riding his KLR year round in Omaha for the last few years.
I was surprised. I liked riding the bike. It was just a few pounds heavier than my SV, but was noticeably lacking on power. Good breaks too. I didn’t like the windscreen, and with only 90 miles on the clock, the tires were still a bit slippery. Overall, a nice bike. I won’t be replacing the SV anytime soon though (or adding it to the stable).
For dinner, we met up with R2U again. It had started to thunderstorm, so we hitched a ride in R2Us car. Our bikes his under the safety of the hotel.
Dinner was tasty.
It rained a LOT. Lots of thunder and lightning as well.
Too soon it was over. They both had to get up early in the morning, so we said our farewells. I had a fun time in Omaha with both of them.
One more shot of NT8. He’s not your typical BMW rider! I can’t wait to see it in the snow.
