I have 4 bikes sitting in the garage now and ride my Gobi more than any of them. Thing is a major pain in the ass at times but .............. I think I'll keep it. Oh yea, make sure you post up a ride report when you ride that thing to Houston. That should turn into a major adventure and one you won't forget when you're an "old bastard". Congragulations!
Lot of truth here! Just talking about that with some buddies, old geezers like me. 30-40 years from now the world won't make much sense compared to today, and to us there's little sense in it now! It's really good to have some tangible hardware that's a living link with the past. The memories associated with it are priceless. I know for a fact that many of those old memories far exceed today's active events. It's a quiet thing of the heart, much needed when the world seems to be spinning a little faster than it should be. With a rig like that you can 'hold on to the moment' as long as you want, even for years.

Got mine at 22. Now I am 24. I know someone has me beat by getting theirs at 19. Enjoy and good luck
