    way cool! My 2018 1200 has cruise (and honestly one of the most fun bikes I have ever owned) but I would love an excuse to sale it and buy an 850!!!

    A little loop today. The whole point was to get out for a bit, and stick to back roads. So I did the loop clockwise, starting in Pacific Grove, over to River Road which winds through farmlands and wineries, then to Gonzales, and back home via Carmel Valley Road. I got a few drops of rain now and then heading south on River Road, which turned into a steady, light rain in Carmel Valley. I couldn't have cared less that I got a little damp, because it was just nice to get out and ride.

    Made a short stop at Mission Nuestra Señora de la Soledad.

    Then ran across some cows at the far end of Carmel Valley, where the road starts heading downhill into the valley. A pig among cows.

    A look back from the far end of Carmel Valley, looking almost due East.

    It was a ridiculously warm (73°!!!) afternoon for February. Figured I’d be a fool if I didn’t take adavantage of it and ride out to the coast. Nicasio-Marshall-Point Reyes

    Picking up my new bike in a few days.

    Went from a 2017 Africa Twin to a 2019 850GSA. Was intending to buy an 850GS in the dark green color but this was parked next to it and seeing this color in person changed my mind instantly.

    Please excuse the file photo, mine was indoors and it was crowded inside.

    I decided to take care of an issue with my 800 GS. Everytime I ride in the mud I get alot of crap built up around the oil filter and cooler area.
    I've had small rocks lodged down in there

    I decided to fab up a shield to block off that area. Used some aluminum I had in my garage.

    Doesn't look to bad - a little paint and it will blend in just fine. Might have to add a little venting but that will be for another time.

    looks good. I would monitor the temp gauge / or at least if the fan is coming on earlier... but then again i wouldn't know what triggers the fan. Water temperature. Lunch! IMG_3765.jpg or engine temp. Does any one know?

    Hey, new F700 owner here. Taking it home from Santa Fe BMW tomorrow. My husband (Trailwerks) is giving me a hard time. He says the BMW will swerve...into every Starbucks parking lot. Tell me it isn't true. Do I have to retrain it to going into microbreweries?

    I see a bike lying on its side on those expensive hard bags. How did those hold up ? I'm afeared of hurting my Vario bags. I'm used to softbags (Wolfman, Mosko Moto) that don't mind an occasional encounter of the horizontal kind.

    Now isn't my 2015 the snappiest ever stock paint job?

    Very nice color combo. Nice MRA Vario screen too. I like mine. You got a super clean bike. How many miles?

    Huge inventory on their website. Did you happen to look at their F900XR?
