So hard to judge for real. If I had taken to heart what I read about the 2009 F800GS on the forums I wouldn't have bought it, and after all these years it has been quite trouble free. I wish there was a "I'm not a whining pussy about my new bike" thread.

I dunno, I fondled that new liquid 1200GS when it was at the shop. I was surprised at how well it "fit".

Damned weather is so unpredictable...


























One day it's warm the next day its warm and breezy.



With white caps like these I guess we'll just have to do the walking tour down to the Soggy Peso.



Adios, amigos.

You may have to stay where you are for that to work out. Seems most of the country knows what one is at this point.

Hey EC.. where do you live? I'm feeling like $20 would get your local plow guy to set an extra big berm in front of your driveway.
