    OK, We are in!
    Not sure which number we are in the line up, yet, we Gusgus's will be there.
    Please count us in!:clap




    On that note, I'll bet phtog already has the presses spooled up printing those T shirts. :wink:
    "Valley Trash defecates or abdicates" Maybe it loses something in the larger meaning?

    The reality of owning a home gets fully involved in the need of defecation at times. Like last week , for example.



    Spent 2 days digging and planting our PFD checks in the yard, or to use a colorful explaination, "Flushed them right down the pooper!"

    Maybe somebody's pissed him off? :dunno
    If you go on the next ride he leads, watch out if:
    a. He stops on the near side of a large puddle,
    b. Makes everyone wait until he gets his camera set up,
    c. Tells you "It's not deep, hit it fast and you'll go right on through".

    add to the list:

    1) legion

    2) somebody related to legion but other than legionwife

    On another note:

    A) Never PM someone you don't really know. They might be a huge dumbass incapable of differentiating between private and public comments.

    B) You're the coolest, photog.

    And completely unrelated to anything, quoted comments are suspect...

    Hmmm... dunno. I'm wondering if that might be a bogus quote. I've heard of them before. Congrats on the new ride. Which part did you really want?... the higher suspension or the bigger tank? I'd have thought you could just stuff the bigger tank on the bike you already have, no?

    <strike>You are. </strike>

    <strike>Youare.</strike>

    <strike>Youre.</strike>

    <strike>Your.</strike>

    You're.

    Sure, pick on the guy that has to type one handed. It takes me 10 minutes to type a response, do you really think I care about my spelling?

    The 2007 R1200GS Adventure solves many issues BMW has had with the earlier bikes.
    The Can-Bus electrical system actually works now, the final drive has been upgraded and now they recommend servicing it, it is no longer a non serviceable unit, the transmission has been changed, shifts like a dream now instead of a truck, the ABS brakes have been changed completely, no more servos to fail, and of course I dig the new Touratech bag system, the 8.7 gal fuel tank and the suspension has a higher load rating. I also purchased a second set of wheels from Woody's Wheels and had Tourances put on them and a set of TKC80's put on the stock wheels.

    Yes I could have put the larger tank on my existing bike, but BMW made some significant changes that I thought were worth having.
    The reality is, that I have far more invested $$$ in my 06' GS trying to make it an Adventure than my new 07' Adventure cost me. The Adventure was the bike I wanted to begin with, but I was unable to find one this last spring, and now I'm glad I waited.
    :D

    Thanks, Daddy-O! How are the sixth graders treating you?

    akphotog hain't been seen none 'round Fairbanks.

    I did see a new Ski-Doo getting flogged on the Chena yesterday... monster rooster tail, doing about a buck and ten... it's always funny to see a sled ripping up a river.
    Then again, the new sleds look pret-near like a jet ski anymore. :dunno

    Can I do an Iron Butt in Canada? Izzit against the roolz? D2DSS1500?
    Wait, that reads like a new Ski-Doo model... :lol3

    Photag?

    Can we hear the wadding of lace undies?:dunno

    Come on Photog, come on back!

    D2DSS1500? YA GETTING A NEW HARLEY?:jack

    Yes you can complete a saddle sore ride just about anywhere. Go HERE and read the rules. Maybe you could get a friend to complete it with?:thumb

    But if D2D gets any better it could be the best ride in the world!

    I really enjoyed 2006. It was a fantastic ride with great people. 2007 could be even better.

    Stickers are going to be tough to fund and have enough time to deal with. I haven't forgotten, just a lack of time and money to move forward. Sorry.
