    OK so there are Utard threads and GS threads but no Utah GS threads. I am making this thread for 1200's 1150's 800's 650's and anyone that has any other bike like that and wants to ride. V Stroms and any bikes like a GS are welcome here as well.

    Here is a picture to start this up. And if you want to ride locally let me know.

    V Stroms are welcome here even if they have hit a cow or two.

    I am mostly looking for people that can do the kinda rides you do on a GS. I can't get anyone from the red headed step child club to go on my rides unless they are all dirt, but I want to slab it to the dirt so I am opening up my NO GIRLS club.

    Your invited even though your just a little bit of a little girl. :)

    FYI

    I think you have a little collection of pictures you use just for this site.

    I am also convinced that there are parts of Europe that never quite make it out of the 80's.

    I'm glad to see this thread. I've had a lot of trouble finding rides that are suitable for a GS since moving here from North Carolina.

    I'm not in to riding deep sand, rocks, mud, and steep climbs, etc. Gravels roads are great though.

    That is a nice bike. I am jellous. I made the thread because I have had the same problem. It has only been up a few days so hopefully more people will join in and we can get some rides together.

    Hey soon after moving to Cedar City, I replaced my GS with bikes more suitable to southern UT riding -DRZ400 and Tiger 1050. So can I play?
