I'm sick of the desert! What about trees this time?

Your kit, like the rest of your machine, looks well thought-out. I'm looking forward to reading your ride report. Dang, you make me wish I was 60 again!:D

She Rides Ten Sleep

I think Highway 12 is my favorite motorcycle road in the US. This was taken two years ago:

Schuberth Helmets for ADVRiders

No, Jim, the pivot mechanicals aren't the same. That's why, at 80 mph, the new shield will stay open in the "city" position. Also, my Pro fit very well right out of the box and I didn't have to use...

I remember riding up Jug Factory Road to John Bishop's original place very well. I loved the grub and the "NO FARTING" sign above the door. They were serious about that!

Drop-in Replacement Battery for R1200GS

The OEM battery on my '09 GSA was AGM and lasted about 18 months. I put an Odyssey in and it was still there when I sold the machine in 2015.

New LC's burn oil?

Aggroman, my '14 GSA's oil light will sometimes come on after a prolonged downhill ride. I've heard of some others doing this, as well. It goes off when I get to more level riding.
