I hope my trusty ole GS can get the job done without issues. Just rolled 75k and I am guessing that most will be on the newer 800 GS.

I've got some new tread, ready to roll.





Looks like fun make,s me miss my old yellow overweight boxer. It's nice to see people get together and actually ride gs's other then talk about what farkle they are buying next.

After Fridays Skyline Drive ride I found this nice flat spot on the rear wheel.
I give up, this would be the fourth time I've sent the wheels to Woody's to
have them straightened out. I called them and am going to try some special
rim and spoke job set up they have for the Tenere. $650 for the rear.
I've spent more than that in shipping and repair costs so what have I got
to lose?

Yeah mine is fairly farkle free. I hope she'll make it to Alaska next year. I had a fuel pump go out this summer on a trip and that sucked bad: Trip Report Here double moo had his final drive go on same trip...

We like to get out and ride. Canada/West Coast, Etc ride last year in 9 days... Awesome trip!
