    It's not a humble bike, it's a heroic bike. The stock grey is just plain wrong for it.

    I'm just guessing but do you remember the lost desert racer from On Any Sunday?

    The poor guy was lost and broken down. He decided to light a signal fire using the fuel from his bike, a bush, and a lighter. He tipped his bike enough to soak the bush with the fuel from his bike. He pushed the bike away from the bush and then lit the bush on fire. He didn't realize that trail of fuel followed his bike. Not only did he light the bush, he also caught his bike on fire.

    Am I right?:ear

    Not as I've heard it but, it's all legend at this point. Some guy, I know the name but can't remember it now, rode an old Husky out into the middle of the Mojave with a buddy following him in a pick up with a bunch of concrete. They dug a pit, put the bike in and then poured concrete around it. A bunch of folks have made plaques in memory of fallen riders and friends who have died and placed them there. It's sort of a "holy" place for SoCal desert riders.

    My very first real dirt ride was to Husky with some good friends. It was awesome. Can't wait to go back.

    i got to thinkin about the GSs being on their sides...

    It provides a natural stopping and picture taking break, so that's when the pics get taken. What you DON'T see is the OTHER 99% of the ride where they were on 2 wheels.

    I know I don't just randomly stop and snap pics. :nah I'm riding to be riding.

    :ricky

    Course, I can't say much, day 6 of GS-Adv ownership saw mine doing its best 'I wanna be a submarine' imitation! At the 600mi tuneup, the tech sez 'tell the customer to lay off the power washer!' :bluduh
