Crash bars and skid plate:
And I just installed my "Beemer Buddies" heated grip compatible overgrips. I'm hoping this will help thicken the too-thin GS bars.

We also went here later in the day:
It's just a short spur off Indian Arm River Rd. but it's very rocky in sections and fun. They're also the very jagged, chunky and sharp! Great for testing skid plates! Lot's of chiming of the skid plate This is just an easy bit where you can stop to take a pic.
See you out there!

What else do you do when you're at a campsite and the fire is getting low.
You run around with your LED lighting and take photos making fellow camper think you are praying to the ADv gods for a safe and fun ride.

Today my 2nd all-road drive ever.
Standing and steering is still very difficult.
When steering to the left, you should balance to the right.
But then my weight is on the right peg and it's difficult to steer to the left...
During the drive, I came close to an old playground in the forrest, so I went to play a bit...
With my default F800 tires, I went into the sand and up a hill.
But the GS stalled (sorry, my bad).
I started the GS uphill and tried to drive, 5000rpm in 1st gear, but not a lot of movement.
this is what my GS had done.
