I used the actual fort for a tag in 2010.

Nice bike I guess since your family reunion is in SOUTH Alabama, the GA tag will be heading that direction as well.

Your right.... its south of you....

After riding about 120 miles in thunderstorms yesterday, I wasn't moving it too far from the house and was keeping an eye out for rain.





So far there is only one other tag located in this friendly south Georgia City.

Probably my last tag for a while - I'm supposed to be spending August in Ecuador.... Leaving the new bike is tough but I should have some panniers to install when I return.

Holy Cow! Just got home and parked the bike. I was just a few minutes from there and was hurrying home to miss the rain showers. Did ride through two, but not too bad.

Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

I really like the looks of the ST with that paint scheme. I also like the openness of it compared to a sport touring bike. Wife gave me the go ahead to get one if I want. Do I want?

Are you going to go withe the Yami panniers or some other brand?

It has good road manners, it's amazing how well that little windscreen works - much better than the one on the FJR.

Probably these from Global Scout

The bike is certainly more open. I can unfold my legs a bit more with the upright riding position. Been through 3 tanks of fuel (49mpg) and already need to do the first service. Picked it up Friday evening. I'd like to thank Terry for helping answer a few questions I had about DS machines.

Drive by that every time we visit the in-laws in Phenix City. As far as ADV bikes, I love My Tiger. Had it up for sale, but backed out twice.

Easy mistake.... There are a few tanks in the fort benning - Columbus area for some reason.

The clue is the sentence under the pictures.
