    Checked it out last night, but it did not seem to have upgrades for GS/GSA1150s.
    Does anyone know if this option exists?

    Love the thread by the way.
    The "instant boner" say's it all.
    Caked myself!

    One of AT Gregs riding Mate's. ok that doesn't narrow it down as it appears Greg knows nearly every person that owns an adv styled bike:deal

    I think he said Shane Watts' father or uncle, etc owned it.

    looked like a weapon!

    Looks a might bit crowded on the inlet side to me to be able to check the clearences quickly and confidently without filling the head full of dirt. Unless you can carry a gerney cleaner everywhere like the factory mechanics ???

    The pic from 2006 is no longer available. Does somebody still have the pic of this CX500?

    I ride a converted CX500 myself:

    Had one of those! Honda passport 70! Wheelies (had to lift up) in 2nd gear were always a blast. Electric start too, no less.

    I went on a organized dual sport ride during Daytona Bike week one year in the late 90's I suppose. We were blazing down a power line road that was foot deep sugar sand which if you don't know requires you to get your weight rearward, pin it in 2nd or 3rd on a XR400 and just let it dance underneath you. Momentum is your friend as in many offroad situations. Up ahead I see a guy plunking along duck walking his bike and going WAY too slow to get on top. As i get closer the quack is on a Yamaha V-Max....the regular street version. He ended up doing the whole ride and finishing but WHY???
