It's been a while, and yes, the GS is still dead. But enough of that for the moment - just wanted to share something nice. I had a trip planned for last weekend, and a friend went out of his way to make sure it happened. That's me on the local dealers' demo unit.
Awesome to ride again! Hope I didn't offend anyone with the depressingly downward series of videos. All it took was a little highway time and some twisties to sort out the meh.
Thanks guys for helping people get back in their saddles - appreciate it
