transmission

Gotta be the sand hills of Nebraska

Very nice part of Nebraska that does not get much attention with some great riding and camping. Also includes the highest waterfall in Nebraska. Don't laugh, it is pretty nice!

Heavier flywheel

I am curious on how the heavier flywheel works out on the new water cooled Adventurer compared to the lower geared enduro transmission on the earlier GSA's. Any thoughts on that ?
