    When highsiding it's best to remain calm and know that you are not in control of your own destiny right at that point. You are just along for whatever ride you're dealt. :kurt

    I just met a guy at the shop who purchased an Adventure he may go on the ride, I told him I would bring the GS if he goes, I will make you the same deal DTR, other wise its the trailmaster.

    I'm working on Saturday unfortunately... I don't have nobbies yet, but i'm going to replace my tourances with them - they are shot.

    I'm going to do my 6K service tonight (valves and such) and then get tires thrown on Friday (i hope) - TKC's by the looks of it. Sunday and Monday I'm riding to Reno over Tioga with my wife (who's riding her K1200r) so I'm busy then.

    Steve how did your Final Drive sort out on your GS? Replaced or what?

    Hello from Merced!

    I'm on an R1200GS with only HP2 headguards for protection, and anakees.

    My brother is visiting, he'll be on a DR650 with a trailwing rear and kenda something (50/50 knob) front.

    Looking forward to finally making it to a dsrider ride, hopefully I can hang (I'm a dirt nub, the brother has some CR125 days under his belt)

    :clap

    Don't worry Danny, you'll be fine. Briceburg is as good a place as any to start dirt riding, just don't turn the wrong way. If you do, it might take a while, but you'll get wet(Merced river at the bottom)

    Great to hear from you, I have a set of engine guards off of 06 Gs, I just put on hepco becker bars.

    Give me a ring 999-0736

    Look forward to seeing you guys, DR's rock!

    I also run with the hp2 guards and I love them, without the bars I WOULD HAVE LUNCHED THE MOTOR TWICE.:eek1 :eek1

    My cell phone works in Mariposa, may even be a little earlier than that
