Hi Brian, can you please tell us of your experience with the karoo 3s?
I have the twos and wondering what to replace with, I am interested in their wet weather bitumen performance.
Thanks Robbi

Do we ride the same bike in the same place?
Nah, this can't be
I love these lonely forest roads.

Celebrity look alikes... ;)

Watch out for the forestry vehicles and timber trucks though! They are hard to hit.

I have owned and raced many of those beasties! I owned and operated Mr. Torana in Perth W.A. for a few years back in the late 80's before selling out and getting away from the torries. Great machines!.

MotoBoss and Botch/269700

The tent is the Outbound Outpost 3 and I have only just received it and set it up once so the real test will have to wait till summer time.

Botch, no, this is not the Redverz tent with the vestibule big enough for your bike. I will include a link to a video time lapse of me setting it up after I got it and you can see me sitting in the vesti in my Pico chair. I'm about 6' even and, in the Pico, my head hits the top of the vestibule. But it is big and wide and one could easily ride out a rain storm in the vesti and keep your stuff dry. The tent is much taller but still not enough for me to stand up in. The Redverz is much taller. I've seen some set up at rallies by the vendor and they are definitely quite large. I just didn't need that much. Ain't going across the Atacama Desert any time soon.

But, the Outpost is easy to set up, like any "dome" tent and, when guyed out, seems pretty stable. It is advertised as a 3 man tent but that would be with 3 sleeping bags side by side. Of course, with that vesti, you wouldn't need much other than your sleeping bags in the tent part. But 2 comfortably and since I travel alone, it's plenty big for me. I need my space. 9 lbs. Only 3 poles, one for the vestibule.

Problem is they are darned hard to find. I guess Outbound, a Canadian firm, isn't making them anymore. I looked and looked and found one at Mountain Sun Touring Co., a small outfit that sells at some of the rallies. $249, much cheaper than the Redverz.

Great for rallies and moto camping.

I got shocked in the junk.

After work I was taking the liner out of my Motoport Kevlar/Cordura pants. So maybe the pants sliding around the Jesse panniers generated some static? I leaned in to grab the waist and Zap! a nice little shock from the corner of the lid to my sausage.

i believe you're in the wrong forum. this one is, "what have you done to your GS" not, "what has your GS done to you..."

ouch, pal. hope the goods are doing ok; damn science.

Yesterday actually. Betty had her annual professional service and brake and clutch system flush. My GS has the servo assisted abs system :-/
Also had a crook ign coil replaced and a friction type throttle lock fitted for those long boring freeway bits on the way to the fun bits! Today I upgraded the low beam to a 55W 6000K HID
to compliment the pair of 55W HID driving lights :-) All set now for my Easter escape.

As fulltime riding approached I finally decided to add some "Winglets" to the GS. I was just going to purchase a set but decided that spending $10. on plexi was a lot cheaper, and hey, wha'ts the worst that can happen!

Sooooooo

I went from these (91/2" x 4")


cut out of this (1/8") had to make an extra one (don't rush the bend!)
Cut out with a roto-zip (like a dremel tool) and sanded with a belt sander, finished by hand sanding.



and made these (used double sided tape to adhere and reflective tape on top to cover the ugliness)







I haven't tried them yet but will today on my pre-oil change ride. I'm happy.
