Sorry no pic of Trona...
Until a week ago I would have said that Trona had ZERO redeeming qualities

I guess they have one. Those are damn good burritos

Glad to see you're still having fun. See ya soon.

Tire Make??

What kind of tires is ChiTown using....are they the stock Tourance that came with the bike? If so, pretty good testimonial as he is clearly doing some non pavement stuff.

800GS comes with Battlewings, I think Joe got Anakees installed at the dealership before leaving.

Anakees came stock, and with 2100 miles so far they are wearing well, I expect to get 4000 out of the rear...
4 days to Baja...



Life in death valley is quite different this time around... Most roads are still closed from all the rain or snow. I haven't really been riding much, just relaxing, and enjoying good company with Ara & Spirit...
Supposidly the desert flowers are going to bloom anytime now, after all the rain.

I thought you said you asked A & S to change them when you bought the bike? My bad.

Mine came with Battle wings, and I switched to TKC80's.
