    I've always wanted an RT, but with our roads so bad here in Vermont (many of the dirt roads are in better shape than the paved) I'd live in dread of body damage. I've never dropped the GS, but if I...

    While riding thru Ohio on my way to the rally last week I learned that the best gremlin bells are hand-forged by Amish dwarves. Those are sold only in the little town of Charm, Ohio

    Can't let a little thing like that stop me. I suddenly became religious about resetting the fuel level on the GPS, but with all of the off road grunt work the rig is getting on this trip I worry...

    A couple years ago I was commuting to work on my GS wearing my red Stich Onesie. While waiting for the light to change so I could make my left turn a blue hair woman pulled up in the lane next to me...

    Looks like my 2010 GSA is having issues. The gauge only goes to half full. I added 8.1 gallons and it showed full again, but after a full day on the road it only dropped to the halfway mark again....

    My wife never enjoyed riding and frankly I find her screams somewhat annoying, so for anything longer than a day trip it's just me and the dog. On day trips it's just me on the two-wheeler.

    Like Kurt said, it's difficult to find a bike without ESA. I searched for a GSA with non-ESA for almost a year before finally giving up. Some love it. I didn't use it till it failed and I had Wilbers...

    I'm not sure I'd agree with the conservative statement, though definitely safety conscious! Most of the Beemer riders I know, myself included, will ride 10% faster than the speed limit and not slow...

    I get in the low to mid 30s in local riding on a mix of dirt and paved roads. It drops on long trips as my speed increases, and the ragtop I had built to keep Barley out of the sun added a lot of...
