You're gonna love those TKC80s! They do provide lots of traction in the dirt.



Sometimes, too much traction!

Gonna be pretty hard to convince folks that a GS is NOT the same as a Vstrom!
I don't have anything constructive to add to this thread. I nearly always ride alone and don't photograph myself or bike. Most of my "off road" riding has been more like the roads in the last two pics which, as I said, I would drive my '03 Corolla on.
I'm a firm believer in the "Tread Lightly" program, I want to come back time and time again.

Most places where pictures get taken are places where the demands of riding are, well less demanding.

I always ride like I've got to ride this thing back home, it's not like my pickup is in the parking lot.

I don't want to buy your Corolla when you are done with it...

One's wealth doesn't always correspond to how they ride. I'm not a wealthy man but I sure do like to, as you say, "throw my bike around".

Don't be so sensitive to orange there Clayton, were all proud of our GS's and most of the threads in GSpot (except for the 1000 Final Drive polls).....yet I was simply asking for some pictures of GS's in action and somebody to post something different like a GS doing a wheelie offroad or jumping something completely stupid.

But most passenger cars could be driven here
Or here

Beautiful scenery, but road touring none the less.
I assure you, there's no way in hell your Corolla (or any other passenger car) could've made it where we were. The pictures don't do the steepness justice nor can you really see how deep the ruts were. I stopped just below where NBeener was because the trail turned into a gully that was so narrow and deep I got hung up on my crash bars. NBeener and I had to pick up the ass-end of my bike to turn it around to get it out of there.

I admit that most of my off-road riding is on the GS is on gravel roads, but not in this case.
