It does get a little uppity when you miss a turn but it gives up with "do a U turn" eventually and re'routes using different roads.
The only annoying thing about the voice is sometimes it comes on in the middle of nowhere and says take a left on the very fucking road you are on.

This would make a fine RTE in Bama.

It use to have a sign in the window a few years ago that said "You kill it and we'll cook it!".

Nobody(well, you and me) can go there right now, hence Hell.. I'm figuring 3 years min. BUT, it is what I'll replace El Tigre with.

Because next to the Audi it is the most electrically over engineered vehicle out there. It uses only premium fuel (great for third world countries) if anything electronically goes wrong then you are looking at a 3 week wait for a replacment part if you are in Chile etc.
I say fuck these over engineered expensive finicky fake dual sport bikes, and go with something you can fix by the side of the road with a few simple tools instead. Is this about image or adventure? Says the guy with a Tiger looking at a Honda.

Race is tomorrow, providing Chisenhall and I don't die of heat stroke or head in diving, we'll post pictures. And a GIGANTIC thank you to you ff's who sent a donation to St Jude. As of the writing of this, $1925. has been raised. Click my sig-line and see .

Agreed. But...
Wanderlust. Grass greener. Dreams. Obsession. I'm not dead yet.

OH man, I have this exact rant in my head all the time.

It's not image or adventure, it's twisting the throttle on Gogira.


Have fun today ya nutball badasses!!
