    That's what I get for looking fast, seeing the head, and not really paying attention beyond that.

    I will maintain that I absolutely love 1200GSs, it makes me feel not quite so bad about my pig's weight.

    Canadian 2012 V-Strom 650 Adventure model (includes luggage). In the U.S. the Adventure is black. Both countries had the regular V-Strom 650 in orange. Canada also has the 650 Expedition model in orange with different luggage and some other different accessories.

    A coworker of mine crashed today in the Deals Gap area. The info I got was 'he was headed to Ghost Town HD, coming down the mountain, almost there'.

    Anyone with local knowledge translate that for? Trying to figure out where they are.

    Epic fail, no ADV sticker on the back of my new truck. Coming out of Parson's Branch Rd after hiking in Cades Cove this past Tuesday.

    you are prohibited from posting until an ADV sticker is affixed to your vehicle. Now, go sit in the corner.

    Nice bumpers!

    The only fails I see are cleanliness and excessive use of All-Terrains. Get some good Mud Terrains on that thing and get it dirty!

    Pillion not wearing gloves, Rider has no eye protection at present. Upper body is possibly across the line. Also, the high beam is on, although that may or may not qualify as a fail (it does to me).

    BWM headlights are designed as to not effect your night vision. High beams are not a problem.

    Oh, I like that cap. How are you liking it, and which model is it? I've got a hard cap on my truck right now but would really like something that's easier to remove.

    Softtopper is awesome. I can roll up the sides & the dogs can ride in the back. You can roll the whole thing down & forward in seconds like a boat canopy if you need to carry something big. I installed it by myself in about 30 minutes & that was with me reading everything twice.

    Just what we need, another "I'm not on my bike" cage sticker.

    They serve a nice purpose though, it seems those are the drivers that are more likely to be a jackass to a rider.

    I like that, a really cool pic. Even without JVB (or because of that? Heh, heh! :evil)
