Oh sorry- long time no reply. I just saw it in a parking lot at a thing at Hunter Mountain, NY about a month ago.

Here's some other tasty little bits I saw recently:

Full on HPN bikes.

Just scored this twin plugged 1000cc special last week. 100mm extended twin spar swing arm with single white power.45mm marzocci front. It should be a cure for the hp2s fuel endurance

So, does anyone know what "abwegig" is? It's on both bikes. Would be cool if it was a moto rental outfitter

Wishful thinking...

It is a Wordplay. In one meaning abwegig says senseless, very very little potential. On the other hand it can be interpreted as of the way, similar to offroad. Here it is used as name for a off road shop.

In post #703 I don't see the helicopter they dropped that bike from in order to get it off the ground.

Keith in the UK just sent me this pic of a Desert Storm GS bought by a friend of his. Looks like an FJ Yamaha Fairing and a 43 Lt Acerbis/HPN tank

Blake's upload is done using a photo hosting site (note there's no border around pic) and is the preferred method (ADV doesn't get cluttered hosting the pic itself - just needs the link...).

If you need to actually upload the photo to ADV, it needs to be under 146Kb (for jpg.'s anyway...).

Great looking bike(s). Wish I could read it!
