Good people

I went yesterday and got some Draggin' Jeans. I think they are the only ones in Colorado who carry those. Plus I got a sweet Motogear t-shirt. Cheers!

The GSA is Yummy.

I started riding in 2006 and my first bike was a F650GS. I loved learning on it and had tons of extra beer money due to the high MPGs (65-70) :1drink. Well, this summer I was riding the 650 daily and...

Do It!

Definitely test drive one. You will drool during the ride, become a bit woozy afterward, and whip out your check book without even thinking.
