Now don't be getting all logical. And shit. Sheesh. He had a plan. A man needs a plan. Doesn't mean it was a good plan. But he had a plan.

The down side of a GSA with the huge tank and the diversity of mileage is that it gives you a wide range to empty. Sunday I was riding against 40mph head wind at 100mph...mileage was 26mpg At 60mph I can get 45 mpg

You sure that's not the downside to the right wrist being severed from the common sense part of the brain?

Dam James, you don't let any of us have fun with out calling us out.

But there could be a little truth in that commit.

Heading into the Talladega national forest this weekend with a bunch of people I don't know, most of them on DRZ's. Should be funny for them anyway.

To watch me.

Crash.

What do you think I'm riding?

My DRZ is still down waiting on unobtanium bolts to come in. There are going to be some GS's and I think a 950 and a SE. Or maybe it was a 950SE. It will be entertaining anyway.

Here is a overview video. I can definitely hang with the maneuver at 0:58. The tight tree scrub part will be high adventure, the rest of the stuff just looks like good old fun times.

He pulled that one in a bar ditch enroute to Uvalde last year. When the bike was brand new. Didn't even face plant. I would've splatted for sure.
