My May work schedule is Hellish and I'm torn between RDV and Cheap Beaver being back to back. Worst case scenario I'll try to pirate a day ride with Glenn but miss good stuff

R1200GS Backrest Project: Need Help in Asheville, NC

We (Pirates Lair) are in need of some assistance ...

We're at the point in our design phase of our upcoming Stealth Backrest for the new water-cooled R1200GS that we need a few minutes of in-shop time with one of these bikes... Driving back and forth to the nearest dealer is simply kicking my ass.. and probably pissing them off. We're in the Asheville area, BTW..

If there is anyone who has one of the new bikes who can drop by to let us take some measurements, fit the prototype to the bike, etc,... we'd be very grateful. We'd only need to see the bike for maybe 15 minutes tops...We do NOT need to ride the bike. Whoever agrees to help us will get a unit at cost when they are available....

Is there anyone out there in GS land that can help?? if so.. please PM me.... We're in Fairview right on Hwy 74

I don't know anybody that has a new watercooled GS, but if you are on fb, I'd suggest to post up in the AVL BMW riders group on in WNC motorcyclists

May 1-4

Inmates of the Asheville area Clan,

Reachwalker and I will be making our biannual pilgrimage to WNC May 1-4.
Any suggestions for forest roads or trails are open, which are closed, routes or rides for competent riders on beasts are welcome. We're staying downtown and will be touring the breweries in the evenings if there are any who want to join for a pint.

Cheers!

Highland on Friday night but Wedge and Highwire are favorites.

I might be able to go Sunday. I will need to check with the wife and see if she has already made plans I don't know about.
