I'm right there wit ya, bro. Last dregs of Summer. Bittersweet...

Was hoping to catch the gold of the aspens on Ebbetts on the way home, but the trees are already bare. Cottonwoods along 395 were pretty spectacular though, ample compensation for being tardy. Consolation prize was a CHP holiday; they all seemed to have the day off. Almost zero traffic, and what there was seemed to pull over for passing. Musta been my day!

I'm guessin' we've got maybe a week or two before the electrics dominate, and we'll all be happy just to get home without gettin our arses wet.

Death Valley over Thanksgiving, anyone?

I might be able to help you out. I'll be in Florida the next 3 months, give me the adress, the keys and I will protect is as good as I can. Just imagine what could happen - trees falling on it, garage roof flying off, not to think of looters etc. etc.!

I guess they both suck, but my purple one is extra sucky.

It is so ugly, somebody someday will think it is ultra cool

Never fear, inside that purple shell lurkes the heart of a true GS, perhaps the finest of the breed. Unleash your imagination, and make it what you will.

Worked for me. I was a happy purple owner until the Barney jokes started. Was gonna do a K1200RS in this livery, but the GS seemed so much more appropriate...



Yeah, Flug, take a crack at this one too, if you want. But be gentle, for this machine pulls at my heartstings in a way that tramp 1200 never could. This from a trip to Death Valley a couple of weeks ago to hook up with the Airheads, shot from the pass north of Trona looking down into Balarat.

Does this bike suck?

I don't own one, yet! but I would like to read your opinion before I go ahead and trade in my beloved R12GS, which didn't suck according to you, for this beast.

Flying Scotsman,

Is that the 1200 GSA? That luggage is too cool. Do you happen to know the manufacturer?

Mike

Hi NorCalMo,

it's a Wunderlich from Sinzig/Germany. It's a stock 1200 GS pimped up with a lot of shiny things from their catalogue.
