I re-priced the bike at $4500, hoping for a quick sale :) I'm easy to deal with, if you come see the bike and don't like something or another we can work on the price.

Awesome bike, barely used. Never wheelied, jumped, mudded, etc. Title in hand with 2 sets of keys. Comes with all stock parts + extra oil and filters for your next change. It has the following farkles:

- FMF Power Programmer
- FMF Powercore 4 Exhaust
- Fender Eliminator Kit
- LED Blinkers w/proper relays
- Flatlands Skid Plate
- Acerbis Hand Guards
- Pro Taper Risers
- Woods High Bars
- Extra grips/air filter

= $1000+ in extras!

Has a couple wear marks from boots/swinging a leg over and a little dirt where I couldn't reach with my washcloth, but otherwise no damage!

Asking $4500 or best offer.

Located in Richmond, VA

RockintheRVA, I thought you just bought her!? I will spread the word locally. I have some friends I've been trying to get to buy a dual sport, but that may be a bit above their price range. With good reason though. It's flawless!

Eddy, can you give me some more details on the Shennandoah 500? I would love to do it. What's the itinerary like, and how does one follow the route? I read the thread you posted here on it a while back, but still had unanswered questions. Also how much? Wasn't in the original thread when I looked.

Thanks man. I really like the WR a lot, I just don't get to ride it as often as I'd like. It makes a great commuter, but I have both the 919 and the SV for that.

In getting married, I've reconsidered my finances a lot. I'll buy another dirt bike one day when I have more garage space and time to ride. I've already let the future wife know that haha. The next dirt bike will probably be a WR250R again. They handle superbly, look awesome, and are fun to ride on the street as well. Fuel injection is a nice plus! I got a good taste of the dirt bike world and I'll be back for more!

This is my first S500 but I'll tell you what I have heard. Limited to around 175-200 bikes, all bikes must be street legal, tagged and current inspection. Bikes must pass tech inspection, registration is "around" $135, this includes meals and routes. After paying for food/catering, any extra $$$ goes to charity. I don't know how routes are given but am taking Zumo 550. You need to make a campsite reservation separately on your own, it's family friendly, VERY fun and will sell out very fast. Don't think about it over the weekend or you will not get in...

Ok! If you could just please post the registration link when it's live and I will most likely be signing up. Since food is provided I don't have to worry about my lack of cooking equipment for the bike.

3. Find a camp spot.
4. Repeat until Sunday.
Thanks for the ride nuggets. I had a good time riding and camping. You have inspired me to scale down my camping setup.

Remember my heated tail light??? Turns out my sub frame was bent down from all the crap on it. I am sure the water break jumps didn't help either :-)

I plan on shoring the frame up with some extra support welded in the proper places. And I may add lower pannier racks that will help to add support to the rear rack.

Any way, it was worth it and I look forward to riding that area again. It looks like me and some local guys to me will be doing a camp/ride event on 20-22 September.

I am pretty sure only some of the meals are included like maybe lunch and dinner the day of the ride. And I think you use roll charts to navigate. Not sure as i have never been. I bought a roll chart holder at Ultimate Cycles in Midlothian years ago. You can call them to see if they have one in stock. Coded directions are printed on adding machine paper which you load onto two two spools in the holder and you roll the paper to see what turns are ahead. Or just follow the pack and hope they are going the right way. I want to do this ride one year to see the roads that are typically closed and only opened to vehicles for this ride. Other than that I think it is too many people and too much dust for me.

As previously mentioned, for sale: F650GS

I posted my '06 F650 for sale on the flea market.

Looking forward to shopping for the next one. Eddy, I'm sure you'd have a few recommendations. I believe Chuck's money is on another GS.

Registration for the Shenandoah 500 is live now - http://watr.webs.com/. Spots are still open but no idea for how long (it sells out every year) so if you're interested I'd head over there right away. I have ridden this at least a dozen times but this will be the first year with my son who just got his MC learner's permit (but has been riding since he was 7) - I can't wait!

My vote goes for a TIGER XC.

Does anyone know if BMW increased the fuel capacity on the F800GS Adventure? I have the 800XC and love it, but some are turned away by the mpg and the capacity. Also, if BMW put an lower first gear in the 800 ADV it will be another huge improvement.

Where the standard F800GS carries 4.2 gallons, the Adventure hauls a more distance-worthy 6.3. BMW says range increases by 100 miles.
fully fueled it weighs 505# yikes.

So Brenda, what are you leaning towards? You must have something in mind.

Sounds like a vstrom 650 after you add protection. I swear manufacturers are building bikes to that weight on purpose. I think they build the basic bike and then add on until it is just over 500#.

Also, anyone riding Sunday? I'm ignoring the weather forecast because after the week I've had at work I need to escape. I'll need tomorrow just to sleep and take trash to dump so that my garage cleaning project will be (mostly) done.

"The overall capacity has been increased to 6.3 gallons, which can get you over 300 miles on a fill-up."

The new 800GSA is a sweet bike but I don't know if it's worth $6000 more than your Tiger. What about RotoPax jugs? A 1.75L jug is only $60.

Brenda, if you are going to do pavement and smooth gravel, I vote for a Wee Strom "Adventure" model. If you must have a BMW, the F700GS is nice but is over $11,500 fully loaded, ouch!
