    I love the fact that you went right to work on The War Pig! Be careful not to ride her too much. It becomes quite addicting and you may never want to come home.

    Beautiful bike!

    That's funny. My buddies call me the Taco Truck when I roll up with my Adv boxes on.
    Nice bike!

    There is more to come after I save up some more money!

    I want a set of Woody's super laced wheels and a set of heavier shocks for my less than petite body type!

    Sometime after Christmas for both.

    Welll first off, good choice with RED, everyone knows that is the fastest stock color BMW produces. Highly reccomend the Woody's 21" wheel ... that and suspension completely transformed my GSA into a true WAR MACHINE!

    More farkles, more riding and one day he will match up to his brother. Front shock started leaking on the dalton and got replaced on warranty in montana. No other issues in 39k miles. Lots of luck with the new red one.

    Glad it is doing well for you Don, it about killed me when you pulled out of my driveway and rode away on it. I plan on putting lots of miles on this one. South Africa was a rough assignment but I'm back home now and all is well!
