Sorry, just a "little" joke.
Yes, and I made their wish come true. You would be surprised how many cute young
ladies need a grandfather figure in their lives. Who knew?

Don't mind me Pluric. The only reason I got into motorcycles is that girls will only talk to me if I'm wearing a full face helmet with tinted shield.

Haven't kept up here as I should. Did we decide if a Power Commander V was needed if the reflash was done?

It's all good. I just figured being from West Virginia and all a family reunion would
solve any meeting women issues.

I've only run the reflash so no comment on the combination of the two.

If you are running a catless header and aftermarket muffler, yes, the PCV is recommended because the closed loop area is still too lean; even with the gen 2 flash.

I have a personal friend..did the Camel Trophy..in his words.."you have no idea"..lol..they flew a pallet of trannys to the bivouac every night for the Discos..dropped in by Helicopter..he said they finally left everything off they could..and attached the tranny with half the bolts, they could change them all in a matter of a couple hours..and still get some sleep that way..some actually made it two days at a time..

Seen 1150 GS and RT owners do iron butts with a spare final drive..if your trying to do a thou a day..wouldn't want to wait on parts regardless of brand I s'pose..never a shaft..but could be I suppose..

Bit dodgy if you have a car up your ass at the time. Stalled a couple of times about to pull away from a light. Now I am aware of it I keep the revs up and no issue. I do want to find the cause and cure though. It is always in the back of my mind. I have had the throttle Bodies balanced and the Air screw adjusted. I think I will be going with the Gen 2 reflash after my next trip.
Other than the above annoyance I have had no issues in 10K. I ride with my Buddy who has a 2010 GSA. 110 HP to my 105. I am lighter than he is so he does not get to pull on me. What little offroad we have been able to do down here in SFL, gravel and water crossings, we see no difference between us. There are others with far more experience on here who have had both which can give an honest comparison. Off to CO end of July so will get to compare the two in mild off road conditions (actual hills). We are off road noobs so it will be interesting to see which one is more user friendly and which builds confidence faster. From the specs comparison, weight is about the same. Rake angle on the ST is considered to be better than the GSA. Wheelbase on the ST is 2" longer so should be better balanced. The Techies will no doubt jump in now and correct or explain in more detail
Pluric will no doubt agree that an extra 2" always make s difference and makes things better
Have fun in Colorado..lived there for 20 years..LOVE IT..go back all the time..leaving next week actually..taking all three bikes!!

On your way thru Clearwater..stop and burn my house down..would ya?
it's a rental..

curious

I've trying to find out if the "Worldcrosser" model will ever come to the states, has anyone heard anything about this?
Just wondering if I'd have to create my own from the new white 13' and calculate all the accessories from the "Worldcrosser"....
Thanks!

Stickers and a shit bash plate? Jaumev can get you better looking stickers and almost any
aftermarket supplier has a better bash plate.

thanks

Thanks Pluric,
I'm still torn between farkling out a white ST, and when it gets here, the 1190 R...

Both seem like good do-it-all bikes, of course our European brothers are finding out some of the 1190s are having some excessive heat issues...

My Stateside friend has a deposit on an 1190. He was told he wouldn't see it until October.
I haven't really followed how they are panning out because I'm not really in the market for
a Tenere replacement. I concede the KTM has the off road edge, I'll give some up there for
total piece of mind with the blue tanker.

Roger that...

I understand the ST is a total package, reliability and performance on and off road. I would really like to test ride an ST that had the gen2 modification (what is that by the way?) and then a stock ST back to back.
There is always a compromise when choosing a bike...finding out the compromise is quite the challenge, especially when it comes to ego, riding style, and the wallet!
