Proof? You want PROOF!?!?
We used to refer the practice of swapping performance stories as "Bench Racing". The best one I ever heard was when one guy wanted to "One-up" the rest of us who were bragging about having "two fours" (two 4 Barrel carbs) or "fuel injection". He stated that he had "Two fours AND fuel injection". Didn't need to ask him to open the hood to show us.

edteamslr...No rack mounted under those bags? Are they secure enough fully loaded down ?

you know a wild card tag-orama. i take a pic of say a bridge or an anything with my wrr in the foreground, and post it up, then someone else, say you, take a pic of a bridge or another same anything with your wrr, duplicating the first pic as closely as possable to take the tag, then you take another pic of something else with your wrr/x and wait for someone else to grab it, and so on and so forth

Grips.....any suggestions for some fatter ones ?

Fingers are a little stiffer than they used to be and I'm thinking fatter grips might be a bit easier on these old hands.

Here's a link to the video courtesy of jamin mathis:

Jon, awesome ride and nicely done vid. The big 800gs and X were probably wishing they had your little wrr on the tight stuff.

Q: Are you using the GoPro HD camera?

ProGrips.. I'm running 714 Dual Sports and really like them. Not crazy fat but very comfy with the vibes..

Thanks. I wish I had they're riding skills though!

Anyway, I can't take credit for the video. That would be inmate jamin mathis. I do know he was using the GoPro for the shots taken on the bike and a Cannon G11 for the other stuff.
