Yes, it's a GS Adventure... Yes, it's dirty... Yes, those are knobby tires... Yes, this road is not paved... No, I have no idea where the nearest starbucks is located...

Isn't that spring boss part of the frame? Expensive fix!

No, actually, this is the one on the kick stand, two little tits that hold the bottom of the springs that hold the kick stand up when retracted... I'll take some photos and post them... I plan to repair it with a SS hose clamp installed below the other boss... I also plan to replace it all together with one of these... spendy, but very well made in the USA and adjustable...

Same as macadamia but in my garage. I'm never washing it. Chicks were all over it at the bar last night. Fuck yeah!

What does your 650 weigh? More than 330lb it may not be possible!
I built the hitch and trailer myself.

Dry weight per the specs page is 317 lbs. I have put a few farkles on it that would make that number closer to 350 ish dry. Wet, it could have up to 6.8 gal of gas when full... so, prolly closer to 400 lbs to 425 lbs wet...
