Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen - Here at ADVRider I have noticed that there are many types of threads: Threads for ride reports, Threads for "How do I __________?", An abundance of threads for voicing discontent for some aspect of the bikes failing or not living up to expectations and the owner feeling disappointed, Threads about parts and accessories (tires, batteries, tank bags, etc.). I wanted to start this thread about the shinier, happier side of GS and GS Adventure ownership. A place to check in and share a quick note along the lines of: "I installed "X" accessory and it seems to be cool!" "I washed mine today" (though some might think washing a GS potentially blasphemous. Personally, I wash mine) "I rode it "X" (hundred?) miles/kms/yards today!" (but let's keep this simple, there are better places in the forum for detailed ride reports) "I performed maintenance operation ______!" and of course etc, etc, etc. Now if one wants to include a link to elsewhere here at ADVRider to expand on the activity performed such as maintenance instructions, accessory installation instructions or review, that will be very much appreciated. And as always, pictures are worth a thousand words. I started this in the GSpot > Oilhead Boxers section because that's what I'm riding and can see benefits to this type of thread being flavored towards a specific model family. If the honorable administrator's here find this thread in the wrong place, please move. Happy Posting!
