Welcome Moto One. I had the pleasure of visiting the Tahoe area a few years back. Absolutely fantastic.

Enjoy your bike

I have to say after 35 years here, I like it best in the summer (Tahoe) or as us old timers say "We movied here for the Skiing but have stayed for the Summers."

Shovled the drive twice already today...

This is how you get thru chain control on snow days. Thanks for the Welcome, great site.

What is this "chain control" you speak of?

There are conditions where CalTrans insists on snow chains in order to pass. Rt. 80 is home to donner pass, named after infamous migration of the "Donner party," and if you want to use that road in winter you may be required to install chains on your vehicles tires. (Google "donner party" for details)

Well, heck, after lurking around here for a while, I may as well introduce myself to the masses with a pic of me and my new ride



As you can see, this bike is shamefully clean and pre-farkle, so forgive me for having the temerity to post such a thing here

I've been lusting after the GS's for a few years now. It was time and I procured.

This bike shares the garage with a lovely llittle Italian girl - an '04 Ducati ST3.

Nice to meet y'all.
