The black visor masks my grin as I destroy sports bikes in the twisties. Favourite to look out for are GSXR 1000 riders, whilst riding up the Col D`Aubisque in the Pyrenees with a group of mates all on sports bikes, slowest on paper being a fazer 600 ( not counting the GS), I made my way to the front of the group as they slowed for the hair pin bends, gave the lad on the front on his GSXR 1000 with race pipe, matching leathers and iridium visor a wave as I undertook him, lifted my visor and told him I would see him at the top, before nailing it leaving all behind as if they were stood still. At the top I stopped for photos, a litte bit of movie footage... more photos, before getting back on bike and riding back down road to meet them three quarters of the way up. Let them all pass, did U turn in road, and then road passed them all before reaching summit. Most took it gracefully, but one or two threw teddy out of the cot, and told me it wasn`t fair, because the road was uneven and wet. They then road south leaving Pyrenees for me to enjoy with my mate.

Welcome to the asylum, Rabia.

Saw this on your web page:

"I do not like arguing for argument's sake."

Let me suggest that you stick to the bike and General forums; avoid JO MOMMA like the plague. Arguing for argument's sake is all we do there. Of course, for many of us, it's the icing on the cake of the ADVrider BBS...

Have fun!

Lets see your bike
Well you asked...this is one of 5 BMWs in the stables; my 1980 BMW R65 that I use on my tours in the Alps. In the background, the Matterhorn as viewed from the Italian side.

The others, a 1963 BMW R27, a 1986 BMW R80 G/S PD, a 1990 BMW R100 GS and a 2003 R1150 GS Adventure, are up on my web site. I also have a 2002 Kawasaki KLR 650.

Thanks for the kind words, Pepmiester. Yeah, the screen's adjustable. It's the MRA Varioscreen. I like it better than either the Givi or the stocker laid flat back.

You flatter me on the tires! They're just T66s.

Digicams are great. It only took me 20 minutes to get the shots from the camera to ADVRider. You don't even need Photoshop - any image adjustment program will work and there's freeware out there that can do the job. I forgot to change the camera's setting on these shots - they're a little dark. If I'd been thinking, you'd be able to see more detail. And this is just an old Olympus 1.3 megapixel camera (it takes good pix tho!)

You have any trouble with the T66's? I will be looking for a new set to replace my Tourance in another few months.

Where 'bout in Atlanta are you at?

Hey wxwax, I can tell you're a belt AND suspenders kind of guy -- using both the centerstand and the sidestand. Can't be too careful!


Yeah, I've done that too.

Yeah, I guess I am a belt-and-suspenders kind of guy Dunno when I got into that habit.. but it's definitely a habit. Only done the hop thing twice, neither time badly-- just a scrape and a reminder. Not in the habit of kicking up the sidestand after I put it on the centerstand. Usually kick up the sidestand before starting the motor.

The T66s work fine for me - but I never, ever push it in the rain. And that's where others have had problems. For me they have lots of grip in the dry. Actually, I'm breaking a rule - I got a puncture in the rear about 2-thousand miles ago. I'm still relying on the Stop-n-Go plug - it's been holding the pressure fine. Maybe when it starts leaking I'll change tires. Everyone here seems to love the Tourances, so I may get them just to try them.

Sorry, forgot to answer this one. I'm at Windy Hill and 75 - pretty much exactly where 75 and 285 meet. Villa Rica's off of 20, right? I think I took the MSF course near there.

No shit, a local boy. I suspect you don't miss it too much, given the beautiful part of the country in which you now live. But you do know all about the muggy heat!
