This was about the point I realized I was going the wrong way.



A little smoky in the Sawtooths this morning.

Whatever the reason, Triumph should take a gander at the statistics and engineer around whatever caused the disparity between coverage on otherwise similar steeds.

Through Progressive it was a big bump compared to the KTM 950 Adv. IIRC it was something like $200 additional for liability and comprehensive coverage. Adding Full coverage or Uninsured motorist would have more than doubled the cost.

Insurance costs are part of the total expense and will affect sales to those who make comparisons like this.
Agreed 100%. I wish I'd shopped for insurance first. I'm over $500/year and that's with a spotless record (two decades long!), multiple vehicles and a whole bunch of other policies. As it turns out, I could have had a Multistrada for the same money. Still a great bike but wow, they really need to look into this.



BTW, my Alaska Sheepskin butt pad is awesome!

Tiger Pic

Okay...back to regular programming...

Carmel, on the CA coast, following MotoGP in Monterey. Carmel is famous for it's celebrity mayor - Clint Eastwood.

My GS buddy Lonestar Bob, he's not as cranky as he looks LOL. We rode 1000 miles of coast and camping, took in the races, even got rain one day in Big Sur.




I was walking the beach, didn't pay attention to the surf, and got soaked. So there I am sitting under the tarp in my shorts and riding boots. I look like a freakin' leprecan or something.



We stopped at the 140 year old lighthouse up hwy 1 north of Santa Cruz.




And saw huge redwoods south and west of San Francisco. Very nice old forest up there. Lonestar-Bob here is over 6', he's dwarfed by this tree.




Camping in the redwood grove.





Big Sur, California Coast

@ twisted throttle...great dry bag system! I didn't get my panniers in time for the trip and pulled the trigger on your bags. A decision held with no regret. My wife used them as a back rest on the way down and then hopped in her jeep to follow me back. I had the opportunity to run them in a few configurations and in varying degrees of rain. Bone dry. In the second shot I am in front of her, thinking maybe I should have let this front pass.

Always good to hear! The flexibility is one of the best selling points of the DrySpec bags. There is nearly no motorcycle out there that you cannot figure out a way to use these bags in. The photos are a perfect confirmation that the bags are indeed waterproof.
