    It's a lot of fun, and handles as well as a Ducati ST2, in fact. We can do a ride swap after one of the Rocky Bow breakfasts, next summer Ken. The RT is the only hexhead I haven't ridden.

    But I'll understand completely, if you decline.

    Here is my new(to me) 2008 GSA. My first real MC(other than dirt bikes as a kid). Pulled the trigger 3 weeks ago after months of digging and comparo shopping. Bought her from a great guy in Grand Rapids, MI who had only put 20k on her and really kept her up. Flew up on Sunday and drove her the 1,000+ miles back to Atlanta, GA, making sure to take in about 200+ miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway en route. A great first trip. Looking forward to getting involved in the local rider scene and doing some cross country when I can.

    We (my wife & dog & I) are just back from a 3 year Caribbean sailing sabbatical, 10,000 miles, spanning Maine to Grenada. Already sold the boat and moving ashore to go back to work, so won't have as much time to roam, but it seems like a good distraction for shorter, weekend trips. Already have a Baja trip planned with my cruising buddy for next year. Bummer is the dog can't really ride(unless I get a sidecar). Look forward to spinning yarns on the forum and getting good advice.

    Me and my '08 GS just below the summit on Beartooth Pass. 28 degrees here on June 17th a couple years ago. Thick clouds, light snow, and six foot snow banks at the summit.

    That is why I did not purchase a new BMW, way too many issues for the price. I have an 89 GS and a 88 K75c and each bike has over 200,000 and run great. When I was in the market for a new bike I of course looked into the new BMWs but the price and the continued lack of good quality put me in the saddle of a 2009 ST1300 abs. With just over 20,000 miles on the bike no isssues whatever. What is up with BMW putting out bikes that don't match the quality of the older bikes???

    My '07 RT

    I just applied graphics to my RT. they are the same high quality as made for stripes on cars. I know it's not a normal thing to mess with a BMW but I like the look.

    Point of order! In your sig block are you listing this Awesome GSA as a '13? I bet its a typo. Anyway, nice new machine! Go out and it dirty and you will have real fun! -Ed R.
