I'm loving this tire setup. Heidenau K60 rear, TK60 front. Great off road great on pavement.

I just picked mine up today and slapped my old panniers on. I need to clean the mass of decals off them and start fresh...








Gotta get my Zumo 665 mounted up too...

Eek So clean

Just curious,

But how do you guys do it to keep so clean, how much time do you actually spend cleaning the machine between ride. I just can't do it... Especially here in the winter and spring, lots of rain and crap from road work, dirt roads, logging roads... so much more time spent on cleaning than riding does not make sense.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I like a clean bike as much as the next guy, but faced with the choice between riding and cleaning, I ride.

I make time to clean the bike after I ride as force of habit from my racing days. During cleaning after hard offroad riding I'm checking for damage,loose fasteners and excessive wear of componants. It's probably not necessary but the OCD kicks in......

Doesn't Owen find a cliff to go over on every ride???

He went down following me down a nasty single track but I don't think it was a "cliff" per say.

Here she is.......I've since added some farkles and stickers. Picked up the pig last Friday. Such a joy to ride. Look forward to taking some on road and off road classes to beef up my skill set.

Great job. I also have the grey GSA but looking to change it up. Thinking yellow but I would like to find a site where I can see some GSA custom paint jobs. Well done!

When we say new paint are you guys having these done professionally or are you rattle canning the paint jobs with Krylon Fusion Plastic paint? However they look great. I would like to see some rattle can paint jobs on GSA's and see how well they turn out.
