    Just got my new Orange last sat. Best thing I've done since got my '01 400EXC. What kind of tail pack are you guys using? :thumb :thumb

    I was running the Marsee Bavarian, fully expandable, plenty of room.
    I almost didn't need side bags for two day tripping.

    Did you get that from Jim over at Letko? He was frantically searching for keys amd manuals Friday. He thought he may have sent me two sets but I assume they found yours...If it was yours was the missing set they were searching for. Great bike, enjoy!

    Congrats on the new bikes. I've had my GO! bike for just about one week now (only 300 miles so far).

    Be prepared for a lot of stares and new friends.

    The west side of Los Angeles is one of the most pretentious you-are-what-you-drive places on the planet. It cracked me up when someone came up to me Saturday night at a gas station full of extremely expensive cars and shouted that my bike was "the coolest thing they've ever seen". There was also a squid on a carbon-fiber-pimped Ducati at the next pump. The look on his face as he was ignored was pretty funny.
