I'd like to hook up at one time or another. I'm shaking out the bike and my body for some long rides... 75 is my max though.

Sure wish you were riding tomo.. Uhh..today. It will be epic. Unfortunately for me , it will also be solo. Not smart but whoever said I was smart. Look for smoke signals as I know damn well cells don't work where I am headed.

Somebody likes this!!



here's the Intermot pic Rawhyde posted on fb. Said shown with "enduro flat seat" and it obviously has some different knobs (Heidi's?), skidplate, handguards, no rear rack, and crashguards.

Bueno so far. I'll replace it.

Yeah. That's why I'm glad we stopped before tackling anything else.

Leaving at first light. Lots of miles to do today.

I like it a lot. Looks sleeker like a 800. The front of the beak looks a little weird with that triple triangle thing...looks like a wire cutter, or deer stabber. How tall is Rawhyde? 9 feet? Makes it look small. Any pics of the GSA around?
