My first year with 1200GS......

After a long wait, I was finally able to get my hands on a decent motorcycle for touring.... this is the first year in pics.... 12,000 miles.

Funny thing is, I put more miles on teh BMW in one year than I have ever for the Indian (2003).

I didn't make it up to the bluffs that day, I rode up from Lions just a few miles. Was working with FS and took some time for myself.

Cielo was great, was there just last weekend. I was glad to see it graded although I am sure some of the more aggressive riders will complain. I was about there a few months back just after the landslide near the 154 side, it was a struggle for me getting over the slide so I was glad it was all taken care. My wife is still in the learning phase and now I feel comfortable taking her up there. Good job!
