Ok. The meat was starting to get green anyway.

Winter? Yup. It shut down this weekend after a great set of bonus weekends. Winter is here; time for studs on the 450.

We had a YB breakfast Sunday and I got roped into meeting a few other AdvRiders from the regional thread. After a ride on the slab in 20 degree temps to our meeting spot I find out they couldn't make it due to snow. The big score was an autographed copy of the Man Who Would Stop at Nothing. I'm glad I didn't get the text before I left otherwise I wouldn't have the book.

There's something poetic about an experienced couple that actually rides instead of merely using a motorcycle to get from A-B.

Hand on tank -- Check
Head not way out or way in -- Check
Weight shifted forward -- Check

That's just poetry transformed into physics right there

I would be more impressed if she was wearing the same level of protection as he was.... or at least something better than jeans.

Fixt...you had it backwards. Other than that, you are absolutely correct. It is something special to see a good riding couple carving through some twisties.

You, or he, is welcome to come to a track day on a kart track (tight corners) on your GS and show all the guys there that you have the fastest bike.
You misquoted me.

I went to great lengths to qualify my reasoning and you blew past it.

On a straightaway a Goldwing or touring bike or decent sized naked bike is faster.
On a very tight cart track my Vino 125 scooter is probably faster.
On the Cherohala any decent sized sport bike would leave a GS.
In the dirt or sand or single track any correctly sized dirt bike is better suited,

I stand by point was the GS is ideally suited for Deal's Gap.

How's that saying go..."there are plenty of fish in the sea" She's not going to be much fun to be around with road rash all over her back side and legs. No one ever goes down anyway.

C'mon dude. You said:

I think a good rider on a GS would beat the socks off a good rider of any other bike (that I know of anyway) in the GAP
That's wrong. There is NO WAY a GS is the fastest type of bike on US 129. You're making this into some big debate when it isn't. Riders being equal, there's just no way. A sportbike is almost definitely faster. A big supermoto is definitely faster. A smaller supermoto is almost definitely faster.

The GS is a great bike! It's maybe not for me, but it's a good bike, no doubt about that. The idea that it's some kind of performance bike, and the fastest bike down a twisty bit of pavement, is laughable.

Can you ride a GS fast at the dragon? SURE! You can ride it faster than is reasonably safe, no problem. That's not what we're arguing about though.
