Winter SUCKS

Have an '05
got it 2 years ago with 25,000 klms
now have 66,000 klms

so,, 41,000 miles

I've been outta service with a bad rotator cuff for the last month, or I'd have 68k or more

The bike was my company vehicle (I own the company) due for replacement in 2008 before it hit 400k. That didn't happen after I had an accident on another bike. It was replaced in '10, but the new GSA was seriously damaged a couple of months later and spent the rest of the year off the road and after being repaired was left in secure storage for 6 months when trapped by flood waters. My daughter recovered and kept it mid 2011 - it has been good to her. A new bike arrived in January this year, but I am back on the '05 again until my girlfriends new bike arrives. If she keeps the bike that she is on then I am okay with that if it makes her happy, but I am wondering if I will ever be able to put the old girl to rest.
Yep can we have a bit of a run down on the bike, repairs and the like? whats still original and what has been replaced? this bike has the makings of a legend

Mine's at 33,200, it would be 10,000 less if not for the Alaska trip 2 years ago.
Awesome trip though.

LaurelPerryOnLand asked for '06's. Here is one: a 2006 GS - just rolled over 64,000 miles. No real battle stories - except that apparenlty I still don't know how to ride it.

Of course, this is just a brief ride down the driveway compared with 955616846's half-million-mile monster. Wow.

Here is my bike, on a lonely Quebec back road, as it reached the 64k mark.



Hey, LaurelPerryOnLand, have a great trip! Less then a week to departure!

Will do an abbreviated one...with LOTS of picture in album on Photobucket!
Just spent a couple hours captioning.

Also...have a 10 minute x 10 minute TRACK on Spot Adventures which I'll share tomorrow.

Great trip! Thanks for your interest.

Just calculated the mileage: 5,572 miles without the 1,500 mile Alaska Marine Highway System ferry from Bellingham, WA to Whittier, AK.
