I tell my wife that all the time but she just rolls her eyes, then we drive!
I found nothing wrong with the seat height. And it's adjustable, y'know.
Don't worry, if there's one thing Grainy knows about it's slacken off.
Where did the posts go?
I pruned one of mine.
Anybody wanna go drink some 'spensive scotch?
I can do that at home.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand now Barnyard can tell his Phillips story again.
Story number 8, Mr Barnyard, if you please.
8 yells the new inmate.
Why isn't anyone laughing?
Must be your delivery.
Probably. I am just no good at telling good stories.
Do you need a hug?
Yes please! I feel so lonely and dejected these days.
Ever since, you know, being jilted at Stanleys.
Agreed, but I can't wait to wake it from its long winters nap.
When viewing ADV using the "ADVrider 2.0" theme, lot's of the usual buttons appear to be missing--"Log In" being one of them. :huh
Tried a couple of different browsers (same computer though).
Thankfully, after a little blank-eyed staring and head scratching, I changed to another theme and voila!
In other news, "Paging Mr. Waste. Mr. M. Waste, please pick up the blue phone."
I'm picking up one of these:
and I'm soliciting informed opinions about things like a GPS mount, and tank/tail bags or a dry bag or milk crates!
Enjoy your first oil change. :huh
nice Mr. feelgood, you should get some sleep, ya wouldn't be so cranky :ddog
Nice bike, well done. Is the bike in the picture the actual one you are picking up? I like RAM mount systems for GPS mounts etc.
I don't follow this. Is it a difficult oil change or summink?
The bike in the pic is the one. It's a 2001 that was taken in on trade at a car dealership, though not in MN.
I use a RAM mount on my other bike, and it works well. Just curious if there is a specific base for the cross-bar on the handle bars or the like.
The oil change does seem a bit over complicated:
http://faq.f650.com/GSFAQs/GS_Oil_Change_FAQ.htm but I was aware of that. I've been looking for something like this, low miles, reasonable price, for a while. Missed out on a few...you snooze, you looze. (I'm a loozer, cause I didn't spell 'lose' correctly...)
Last year, when riding in CO and UT, and maybe SD and WY too, there were a few roads, dual track, ranch roads or just longer unpaved roads, that I wanted to check out, but didn't want to do it on my RT. (Except for that one, long dirt road in the Black Hills. You know, the one that I let Google Maps pick without fully checking out before committing to it. :huh) Awsome scenery, and virtually deserted (it wasn't in August!). It was kinda dry out there though, and dusty. And a little squirrely at times. Fun, just couldv'e been funner on a different bike.
In CO, I rented a GSA, but um, errr, it's a little on the, how does one say it, portly side--especially when riding two up with those mega aluminum cases full of stuff and a 8+ gallons in the tank. When moving, it was awesome.

When stopped, it was quite a handful at times. Like here:

Then following the world's slowest pilot truck on the chunk of road they were tearing up, just after the water truck had gone through. :eek1 The GSA didn't like going that slow! Got to check out that suspension though. It made my RT feel like riding a 10 (or 15, 18, or whatever) speed in comparison.
Oh well, didn't mean for this to turn into a ride report.
Now, I'm just whiling away the time until I can go get the 650.
Nice find - looks in great shape. Yes - looks like there is a lot of stuff to remove, but it doesn't seem so bad really, having read that link. Modern bikes all seem to be covered in stuff that needs to come off before you work on them. Getting the gas tank off my Tiger involves a silly amount of pieces of plastic, although the oil change doesn't need any removal of anything except sump plug and filter. Still there you go, just one of those things, and while you have panels off you can check and clean stuff anyway, so it's all good.
