Some real nice fellow. ( not sure if inmate) bought it, broke in, and then decided a GT1600 was a better ride for his style. All I can say is, thank you, thank you ,thank you. All in for 20$.
Very very nice bike and great farkles and welcome to "the club". You are gonna have to be VERY VERY patient now ... Wow, winter is going to feel like an eternity but at least you have something great to look forward to ... I am so blessed and grateful to be in So.Cal. we are suppose to have some rain over the weekend but overall we are still blessed with blue skies and sun shine with temperatures in the 80s can't beat that ... Congrats on a great purchase BTL !!!

Thanks so much. I do envy were some of you live with the longer riding season. I have been very patient and those countless hours scouring the internet have paid off. As I am writing this, it is a pleasant....27degrees F outside. Yummy.

Looks great! Where in VA were you?

A few miles north or west from Monterey. Take route 250 out of Monterey headed west/north for a few miles and then take a left onto Dug Bank Road. Dug Bank is gravel and turns dirt, which turns rough/rocky and then proceeds across 6 or 8 streams like you see us crossing.

Very cool....I'd hesitate in the spring time...water was easily 12-18 inches deep. Were were looking for the shallow areas since a couple of sport bikes were along...yes, sport bikes. A GSXR1000 and SV1000. It sort of made my GSA feel like COMPLETE overkill.

FYI: There is some forestry roads in GW closer to us for day tripping. Along Rt 33/ Rawley Pike just west of Harrisonburg. Dry Run, Skidmore Fork, Road 85/ 85A.
