GPS coordinates

BTW, does anyone have GPS coordinates for the Possum resort (or whatever the proper name is)? Would be useful to me.

Thx much.

Is registration closed for the Possum Trot?

Is registration still open for the Possum Trot? I only decided to attend a few days ago (see post #235), and I was hoping to pay via Paypal.

Agreed.

Although JVB reports some GSWs are past the 60,000-mile mark, I felt I was doing well with 32,000 miles on my '13 GSW.

Agree on all points...what a great bike. Getting better and better...:clap
