If you lend me your bike, I promise to treat it as if it was mine.

And besides... I only fuck pigs.
And i thought they called you porky cos you were fat...

I think its the GS that gets me out.
Here's a few of the easter effort, managed to lure Magicfairy along this time.

These are all along the Taihape-Napier road, we ducked down Mangaohane road on the way over to Taihape and came back via the main route the next day.

Proof that sucking the gut in, beats a diet any day.


We're going that way


Its very hard to sneak up on these wild GS's.

I have a rear seat extension off my old 1150 adventure from touratech it gave my wife better seating and room for the rear passenger if you are interested.

Hey Alistair
Guilty as charged :)
I have moved my bars forward like you suggested and it made a huge difference.

Hey

Sounds good. Both of us suffer from the seat on the GS.
MagicFairy has to put a sheep skin on the grab rail to stop it digging in.
( she blames my fat arse, but I'm not buying it :)

Is it easy to take on and off?

Cheers Jim
