If he buys one, he can keep it in rain mode and probably double his tire life.
Robert said something about "insurance regulations". Peter passed out when he saw that I brought my helmet. Oh, well.

My buddy bought the white one. :)

I'd like to test the new GSA but mine has a special place in my heart. I've been too many places on it already. I want this thing to cross 100k and beyond.

Talking Austin Riders

Did some searching, couldn't find a thread dedicated to Austin area riders. Looking for someone to cruise with. Just picked up a 2001 Suzuki Bandit 1200s. Excited to ride as much as possible between now and a summer long cross country road trip in June. 512-803-8381 or PM.

You may have better luck on the Two Wheeled Texans site finding Austin area folks to ride with. There are some of us Austin types here, but more on TWT. www.twtex.com

We ride all over and have several guys from the Austin area hang out on this thread. Are you afraid of a dirt road? we have been known to ride one or two That said we all love a good twisty road

Oh, I saw that bike and drooled. Wish I could have kept mine, but you have to balance money, time to ride and garage space and it was the loser in that equation.

On the Austin riding side, most the Austin folks here tend to ride in the dirt more and I figured a Bandit rider would be looking for more paved riding.

We do get a few folks with street bikes that hit the dirt.

We all seemed to have missed your last comment. So who was the "buddy"?

Okay, I know since I went to the source and asked. He thought it was funny that somebody showed up to buy and bike and brought his lawyer.

For those of y'all who didn't get to see Rod's new shirt...I just stole this from another inmate (tricepilot). If anything, Rod's campout shirt was louder.

I saw it last night and it was still too early. If Mr2mch could get a shirt like that, well, we should be glad he can't.
