    And a HUGE thank you to Drif10!!! :deal

    Both for the rescue and swapping the rim & rubber over. I owe you big time!
    Out for a ride in bf nowhere back dirt road and a near insta flat on the rear. Of course only very marginal/intermittent cell crevice on the kids cell and none at all on mine. (different carriers)
    Didn't get any replies to the texts to Drif so was not sure he got 'em. (he was replying but they didn't come through as we found out later when the service was better) got a lift from a farmer to a land line and called him and he was already on his way! :thumb:thumb:thumb

    Thanks again!

    Nice comparo, Jim. Long time.:wave

    Both of these bikes are on my extreme long-range radar. It's good to see some real-world riding-and-wrenching experience. If I ever reach the point where I can do some traveling by bike, these are the top two candidates.

    They both are good bikes, but they sure do things differently. :nod

    This thread seems to have died...

    Is there another Stelvio thread that's more up to date?
