We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Found some fun seasonal & forest roads near Newaygo, MI:
43 23.725' - 085 42.145

The Good
Next time, I'm bringing the camera. Some of the forest roads (paths?) were very overgrown & would simply disappear. The sandy seasonal roads gave me a lot of experience with the new (to me) bike.

The Bad
Not much to put here...eh, both the bike & I are a little heavy, oh well.


The Ugly
Old mattresses & tires on the roadside take away from the view

Hello fellow SW Michigan folks, Holland here. Just sold my sport bike and about ready to buy a F800GS. Would really like to meet others in the areas, maybe even do a trip out west next summer.

My wife, myself and the Buick just got back from a three week, five thousand mile Texas trip. I did almost the same trip in the spring on the Honda and let me tell you this last trip sucked, the auto part anyway. Where ever we were I mentioned to the wife about the absence of motorcycles. We followed a beautiful road along the Rio Grande River for about sixty miles and didn't see one bike and it was a sunny Saturday and about eighty degrees. Dang. No one even shot at us from the other side of the river. You almost never see a nice muscle car or street rod down there either. Blame it on economics I guess. The weather is going to suck today and I'm going to take a spin on one of my bikes and I bet I'll still see other motorcycles.
