That was a fantastic day, hard to believe it was just two weeks ago.

BTW, I updated the riders list in the second post so PM if anything needs to be changed.

Difference is The RR turf always looks like that up there and people are happy about it. Your water will go away and people have lots of reason not to be happy about it.

The rock sections look awesome. the tiny puddles look too dry for a KLR rider to be concerned about and what the H&!! do you mean to narrow for panniers? I'm bringing a bow saw

Laugh Critical adjustments...

So, after riding some Jeep trails the other weekend, I came to the realization that a BMW R1200GSA ain't no trail bike.

Here is OhBoy getting up one trail...





So, I've made a change in the stable. The bike arrived at MAX BMW today. I'll pick it up on Saturday.



My R1200GSA is getting traded for a sparklie new F800GS. It should be a lot more appropriate for the riding we like to do most.

Very pretty! When the F800GS was released, I wasted no time trading in my R1150GS on it. Same HP, 100 pounds less weight.

Is that the original centrestand? Mine is quite different from that.

Wink All good

Mike - the '13 F8GS has had a lot of changes made. That is a newly configured center stand. Those are WP suspension bits, too.

Paul - orange is for girls!

If orange is for girls then you might want to take the WP suspention off your bike

WP coming stock on a beemer or something you added? The subpar suspension is what prevent the 800 from being the perfect adv bike for me (and the lack of an 18 inch rear)......



I just went to a 1150 GS....gluten for punishment

The new WP forks are not much better than the old stock Marzocchi's. They are still unadjustable.
