I wanted to go the Yamaha route as a good dealer/repair shop is within walking distance of me, and its 40 miles to the BMW shop; but that's not that big a deal.
The Tenere is a very good machine but the GSA is a very great machine. I tried to love the Tenere but always missed the boxer more. For me, it's 2.5 hours to the nearest Yamaha shop and 4-5 hours from the nearest BMW shop! Congrats on that 09!

Just wait and look for a thread about a hydro-locked GS

BTW, that has to be one of the most remote Starbucks I've seen..

My GSA

Meziadin Junction, Hwy 37 just east of Stewart and Hyder, Ak, northern BC. And yes, everyone gets their picture at this place, and no, there is nothing else there.

Hell yea! (not as deep as it looks) The first half was concrete, the second half was baseball sized river rock, dabbed my feet a couple times, got a boot full of creek water. The road on the other side was part of the creek a couple miles. I am sitting on the side of a county road in this pic. Good times!
