See ya Soon !!!

Hey Guys,

Finally got my F800 put together. Replaced the upper shock bolt - yup, it was bent, but just a tiny little bit. Replaced it with the BestRest Products hardened bolt. Also replaced the stator. I figure they are all going out at 25 to 30 K and thought I would rather do the job in my shop at home rather than on top of Imogene Pass so bit the bullet and did it. Glad I did as the original looked absolutely, totally baked. It was still working and would have probably made the trip but, who knows.....at least now I know I have a decent stator for the next 25 K or so and a little piece of mind.

I'm headed out of Nebraska tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. I have to pick up a left side heated grip from Foothills BMW on Saturday morning, then off to rendezvous with you guys at Glenwood Springs.

See ya soon,

George

Headed out of Oklahoma City after work, stopped in Elk city for gas before hitting the back roads, and bike wouldn't start!

Figured the battery was bad, got a jump, went to Walmart, wrong battery, Autozone was closed, so checked into a cheap motel...

Just replaced battery, alt is charging, think i'm good to go!!!

Last week I was headed into Silverton and saw 3 GS1200 with hard bags headed up to Animas Forks. We went to town and ate at the cantina. Went back up over Engineer and headed down. Found the three guys spaced out tiptoeing through the rocks as we were on the throttle headed to Lake City for supplies for our supper.

You will be glad for the lighter bike on the 4X4 roads while your buds will wish the rocks would end!

If that had been me I would have had to take off the freakin tank, lol. At least it wasn't in a REALLY small town :).

Looks like I'll be watching the trip from here and I am bummed. Maybe join up with you mid week, we'll see. Peter, looks like your still using the caribou rack. Did you make any mods for the wolfman bags? If you're coming through CB on the way up give me a call.

Made it to Cactus Bob's house in Pueblo, you can see the mountains from here, that's a big deal to us flat-land okies!

Hardbags are great, but bad for crashing, the bags are tough but the mounts are not...
