    Thanks for the feedback. I am kinda leaning towards the 800GS something about it just feels right for me but hate to spend that much. V strom is more in line with my budget but thinking I would always regret not getting the GS. Tiger seems to be more lively for the road but still kinda leaves me feeling like I settled for the Tiger instead of getting the GS that is sort of my dream bike.

    What would be the main road or an intersection to this "Lock B" tag?

    cecilsaxon says this is a sweet ride and even more exciting at night but I haven't bothered to search a map to find it :ear

    I was thinking Lock B, skipped over the "across the river" part. That is a very cool, almost always deserted stretch.

    Steve, located a good deal on a 13 Tiger 800 XC. Any input on this vs the 800 GS?

    I wouldn't recomend it in the dark but if you put the keyboard down we could expect to see a new tag around...say 10pm? :D

    let's see, if I leave my house about 4:30 am, I can get the pic before dawn, and still be late for work. :wink:

    or I could just sleep in...:D

    I thought a hint might be needed but I plugged it in to a search engine and it appears they play on FB. :wink:

    I truthfully never even thought of using google to find it. Guess I just figured it was to small a place to show up. But after doing so, I see I know exactly where it is....some EXCELLENT riding out that way.
