These are from WestFest '08 in Lake City, CO, last month.

Ophir Pass road. (Thanks to Larry for the photo via katbeanz.)


Imogene Pass road. This has to be the flattest spot on any dirt-road pass in Colorado. The tankbag got loose after an I'm-sorta-proud-of-it, real crash and fouled me up. (Thanks to Montek for the photo.)


Ophir Pass (Thanks to Montek for the photo.)

All the best,

You should have seen all the ticked off Corolla owners waiting to get through while I had to take my side cases off!

Unlike the pics I was complaining about YOURS really IS off road. Just as the thread title indicates. The pic below is a road like many have posted here.
This ISN'T "off road"


It leads to here...

And I've driven my Corolla there many times and seen many passenger cars, and even busses there. It leads to the raft put-in on the Kings River. There is no particular challenge to riding this kind of road and it's embarrasing to see fellow GS owneers call this type of riding "off road".


EDIT; fuck off

I purchased them from Andy Strapz in Australia. They specialize in motorcycle accessories. The panniers are called Expedition Panniers and are made from quality thick canvas (will last a lifetime). They are fantastic, I decided to ditch my hard panniers for good.

http://www.andystrapz.com/expedition_panniers.htm Also Very cheap $170 (australian).

Here's another shot to give you a better view of panniers. I have a small home made rack to keep them away from the exhaust.

Thank you very much, they are sure the pinnacle of simplicity and practicality, law that I tend to live by and, that is why I like the GS :)
See you around
