I would pipe up...

... but i'll be out of town next time, so it wouldn't be fair to be a tie breaker and keep Todd from getting his pie.

Kawasaki Versys - local service

Hey folks, I recently bought a 2012 Versys and I'm planning to do a week long ride with my dad and brother soon. (This is my first experience with a Kawasaki - very pleased so far.)

I'm wondering where other Kawasaki owners get bike serviced in Greenville. I'm only aware of Powersports. Are there any other recommended options? Thanks for the help!

If I'm gonna take my moto to GVL, it's Powersports.

So it's open again, just down to one lane in that area?

You're a brave man parking right there

the whole road is closed as there erosion on the other side too, but not as bad. I went through a couple of road blocks to get the pics.

You can go all the way up to sassafras mountain road. That is the official detour.

Come on Down

It's not too late for everyone to meet here in New Orleans for this week's dinner. Here's a little something to help you decide, 18" and that's a MEDIUM shrimp po-boy!!!

If all goes as planned, I will be picking up my motor in Greer around that time and rushing home to throw it back in the bike

Becca and I are finally back in town but I don't think we'll be making this week's dinner. After I get some sleep I'll backtrack through the past couple of weeks posts and figure out where to update the dinner location.

It's been a long couple of weeks and I'm so freaking tired... :-(
