    I've posted a few trip reports going through National Parks and Baja trips. I now really needed to work on my riding skills. So Jimmy Lewis' Off Road School was the ticket. GSA 1150 is one big bike but with the right tools it can go to some incredible places.

    Looks like your confidence level's on the big GS has greatly benefited from Jimmy's instruction. :thumb

    Did Jimmy also loan you a pair of his big brass nuts to hold your handlebars? :rofl

    Ya GB, big time confidence just being around the guy. I also knew he was the right coach when he had a bicycle rack for the GS too!

    No bass nuts were used in this ride report. That was an up charge. :D
