We were wondering if you'd show up, Mark. Hope you can make the next one, i've got a special river treat for you


What a great group we've got here on the D thread, always a pleasure to ride & hang with. Matt, Jon & Jeff, hope to see you guys join us on some GLDS rides next year.

Thanks for sharing pictures, i enjoy them.

Randy says he doesn't need a 530 any more, the 990 does it all



You couldn't even stand up on this hill, took 6 guys and a crane to lift Paul's Husky out



Matt finding the balance between not enough gas and over the handlebars



uh . . if we stare at it, maybe it will upright itself



Jon is looking good, nice posture

Definitely in for some GLDS rides next season. I joined the GLDS as soon as I got home last night! I think I'm going to sell off alot of my old harley stuff and buy another DS bike this winter... Something a little less bulky to get rad with!

As a newbie I enjoyed both the crashing and the riding. A big "Thank You" to everyone that help me pick the beast up yesterday. Next time more doing and less crashing!

I'm definitely in for some GLDS rides next year. I might have to step it up from the DRZ though and I think I found my answer ....(Paul don't sell it yet!)

I don't like to see anyone crash. Unfortunately we all do occasionally, no one is sparred.

No crashes yesterday though, a couple tip-overs at idle is all.

Jeff, you got some Husky love ? Do it man.

Now you're talking, Jon !

Speaking of smaller and lighter, Mike just picked up this beauty;



So for any of you guys who thought you might keep up with him on next year's U.P adventure, forget about it. It was hard enough when he was on the old DR 650 .

Congratulations Mike !
