    is it between silverton and ouray? or further north @ buenavista.

    the landscapes at the passes all look similar.

    really nice up there, may go to west fest next year @ buena vista.

    Compared to a truck, I guess.
    Looks like a nice commuter bike.

    Well it is lighter than my R1150GS. I actually like those 990's but way to tall and top heavy for a short legged guy like me.

    Why do GS riders find it necessary to ride offroad with hard panniers? Guessing this was a day ride?

    As most of you know, I do some really stupid stuff on my GSA but every time someone shows up for a day ride with hard cans on the side of their GS I tell them to take 'em off.

    Whether or not the cans had anything to do with this incident, friends don't let friends ride with luggage unless you're taking a long road trip. Off my soap box now.

    :ricky

    No soap box....hard cold truth...

    The bike with the panniers is a rental...the rider has the new wet head GS but it is in the shop:deal....dealer told him the hard bags have to stay on to protect the bike...:huh...

    The rider went down when he hit a cross rut too fast...bike bottomed out...may or may not have happened without the weight of crazy luggage..

    The trip was a simple 2 day ride...other GS riders rode with a soft tail bag and a backpack....
