    Yessir. Me and a friend from Ellijay grabbed a cabin. No sleeping on the ground for me! I like a hot shower, a stiff drink, and a good bed every night!

    I'm only about an hour, hour and a half from the Gap and the Iron Horse.

    Nice! So near, yet so far! (Michigan). Had planned a trip to northern Ontario this year, too. Damn Covid! :(

    A different sort of Vstrom pic.
    2004, 53k. Compression is spot on, valve clearances good. Tps bad, rear injector bad, stps was way out of adjustment.
    All good and smooth now.

    That's a fantastic photograph -- simply stunning..!! Suzuki should use that photo for their advertising brochure.

    Brilliant!!

    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of forest fires but they sure can make some surreal scenes. And I'm going to enjoy them. :D

    I sure enjoy chasing the good light!
    And I'm down with it if Suzuki is in :D

    Abandoned Hwy 36 bridge over the Van Duzen River, near Bridgeville, CA

    Some ne'er-do-wells broke down the gate and now skinny vehicles can access it!

    Hey, what better reason to skip sidecases? "Excuse me good Sir, but is that the highly-regarded, 'Fox Orange'?" :bubba :D

    Just added the Bumot panniers to my Wee. Going to take some getting used to. It has been a long time since I had a bike with large metal panniers. I’ve owned a GS with Jesses, another with factory BMW, a Tiger with Touratech and multiple sport tourers with hard bags. Hoping to retire in the spring and get some traveling in so I bought these but I’m already second guessing if I’m going to be happy with the added weight and bulk. I’ve been moving to progressively lighter bikes over the years and used soft luggage for most of my traveling. I’ll take it for a spin tomorrow and see what I think. Hoping I don’t regret the expense.

    Got a 200 mile ride in this morning with the bags. They weren’t loaded down, but I never knew they were on, so I’m feeling better about it now. And I’m still nimble enough to “barely” get my leg over the bike without kicking the bags!
