I would take that up with the dealer, I think they should replace or repair the panel that is scratched.

I made the call. The salesman has been helpful and this will be addressed today! There was an other issue with the engine guards not getting bolted down properly. The salesperson has been notified that the tech who did the dealer prep is not allowed to touch the bike again. If they screw up the little things, then the big things will be huge.

The Park didn't sell firewood, so I got my own...

Camping at Cave Lake State Park in MidEastern Nevada for some cmaping and fly fishing. I inquired about buying firewood and that was a bust other than gathering my own outside of the park. I Anxiously went to the nearest powerline road and proceeded the hunt. I kicked up a huge mule deer doe and found plenty of old dried juniper like wood. I found plenty and had a great expereince.

This is what I use the GS Adventure for 3-5 times per year, carrying photographers for professional bicycle races. This was last Sunday in Greenville, SC at the USA Cycling Professional Road Race Championships. http://www.usacyclingchampionships.com/wiki/

If you hang around with professional photographers, every now and then they point the camera your way. This was an opportune time.

Jonathan was sitting on the ground just off of the pavement on the inside of a hairpin turn about 2 tenths of a mile down from the top of the mountain. A second after this was taken I probably had my right mirror within 4--5 inches of his wide-angle lens.

Nice I like the blue hubs I wonder if they can be done in a blue and white roundel pattern?

What type of paint did you use on the tank's silver panels?

The Hubs are powder coated, so it might be a little difficult to do. The paint on the silver panels is the same gloss Black as the other panels. It's not Gloss Black anymore. I went with a flat black on everything. You can see the current stage that my bike is in, go back a couple of pages and you'll see it. Pg. 58.

As a bike racer, I appreciate all the work the motos do to make the race safe and to get photographers like Casey from Velonews in position to take great photos. Thanks Alex. I was on Paris Mtn about 200 meters from the KOM line. What a great event.

So...I'm thinkin' that you know what my clutch smells like. That last 150 meters was too steep for me to avoid some serious clutch slippin'. Two of the five times up I went at the speed of the cyclists. My old '02 Adventure was better geared for that type of thing but I suspect that even on Paris Mtn. I would have had to slip the clutch on it. What a blast!
