Harleys and GS's are both very popular.

If I had done it right, I'd have figured out how to ship my GS and my WR250R here (one in my household goods?) I have my GS here. It is probably great for 99% of the roads, but there are times when I sooooo miss my little dual sport. There are some (though not many) good DS areas.

I think a GS/VStrom/Explorer/Tenere/Adventure is a good all-around bike here. You DO want lots of suspension travel. I'm not sure how the HD guys put up with all the speed bumps. I fuckin' jump 'em.

There are lots of times you'll be really glad to have a GS style of bike, in my opinion.
My TAT trip will hopefully bring more attention to the need for more Cancer Research! Please go to and check it out! No money goes to me or family, all to cancer research! Please donate at the location!!! Thanks!
