Oh man...what a ride...

First and last picture of it clean.


It seems to love the mud, even with the battlewings.

Thanks for sharing these pics with us. I'm about same height and inseam, just heavier, looks like it's lower than a KLR, which will make it easier to handle in the slow stuff.

Hi Blackie. Thanks for the welcome and yes I WAS a pro. This bike is my wife's gift for me - sort of a graduation from pro photography world = loooooong story.

She says now I can shoot for myself again and so I thought, "what better way to celebrate shooting freedom than to do it as I ride?". So here I am.

Good pictures of the new GS's, a buddy of mine has been counting the days
all summer long until he gets one. He can't wait.

berkly, glad you didn't hit that small cave (airbox check) on that dirt
road, pothole grande.

Nice freaking pics everyone. I'm still waiting until we get confirmation on a large tank for touratech. I think it's just an ego thing.

about the same, with the silencer in. A bit more growly, but not obnoxious, with it out. I'm switching back and forth, trying to see if it makes a difference in my mileage. So far, doesn't seem to.

It's 6 pounds lighter than stock, too, which is the important part.
