Picking it up (fly and ride from VA) in the upper West Side of New York City....only 1696 miles on it.



After having Jesse's on a GS and Givi's on a VStrom, I went with the Givi's, these things just work for me. I run the topcase alone when I commute (only drove my truck to work 9 days since 1 Oct 12).



Trying to get a little dirt on it, arriving at camp in the Virginia Mountains...

do not worry, from my side there is no danger
In Poland Worldcrosser is expensive, costing as much as GS 1200 with full package
Very nice :) Tenere

I did something similar with red down the sides and a small strip of blue on top...... red & blue reflective


Keep the pictures post en'


Here are a few old ones.... I really like the K60s... I push my Tenere off road and on.. Here is the font tire worn to the edge.. This is still after 10K miles... For guys that says you cant ride them or push them hard.... They only start to let go at about 80 in a turn and dragging your pegs... " I was told "

Now you've done it Jaxon. You're going to have 20 people asking how they can get a skid plate like yours. Nice pictures!

All I've got for today is a partial picture. Notice the twisted up aux light and the bits of deer hair stuck on the front fender:



I think the crash bar and front wheel took most of the blow. It was a little deer, probably just a yearling. Still scared the shit out of me. The bike is fine, but will need a new front fender.

Edited my post to clarify

Bike had 1696 miles on it when I picked it up, about 450 mile ride home. Flew up early on a Sunday morning and got home in time for dinner!
