    After riding an RT for ten years and 165,000 miles, I am trying something different.

    So far, so good.

    Does anyone have the Micatech Pilot or V-Pilot cases with the Staintune exhaust? I have a customer who is potentially interested and I want to be sure the exhaust is no problem. Thanks.

    Those are from my ride from Seattle to Bella Coola, British Columbia. Those particular pictures were taken along the "Grand Canyon" of the Fraser River. A hidden gem in B.C. IT IS AWESOME COUNTRY!! :1drink

    I posted my ride report here: The iRode to Bella Coola and Back Solo Ride Report Report

    If interested in more, check out my video on YouTube (Episode 1): http://youtu.be/sScamxU19no and/or my blog noted below.

    Episode 2 will be posted this week when I finish my ride report. It has more video about the trip in this particular area.

    If you, or anyone else, have any questions about my trip, route, etc.. I am more than happy to answer them. It is one of the best rides ever IMHO.

    Enjoy.

    That Youtube video...really entertaining and well done, not the usual "here are the pictures of my trip"
    Looking forward to part 2.

    I've been wanting to do some heli boarding in Bella Coola. I hear it is an amazing place. It's on the radar... maybe someday...

    My 2007 1200 GS stripped down and ready to compete in the 2012 GS Trophy Qualifier. The olde girl got me into 3rd place and into the running for the finals in South America!!! Now just need everyone's vote at BMW Motorrad US Facebook page and I will be off to Argentina to thrash an F800 of a week. -- Andrew Lacy

    Is that two cut off GS screens on top off each other? Would be the Givi set up but with far better looks. Always wanted to try that. How tall are you, seat height, and experience please?

    Just wondering ... are those special R1200 graphics on the tank? Like the look and the "Adventure" added.

    Some more of mine from a ride out yesterday. 100 mile loop Home > Clitheroe > Settle > Slaidbun > Home. The Forest of Bowland was stunning. Amazingly, I was overtaken fifteen miles from home by a guy riding the Fireblade I traded for this! Absolutely no regrets though and totally loving the big GSA. Just waiting for delivery of Kahedo / TT seats and a Nippy Norman's side stand extender next week :clap
