    1150 GSA joins a group of dirtbikes...

    Got an invite to do a run up over the local mountains on some of the more challenging "offshoot" trails. GSA was in the garage with a relatively fresh set of TKCs on it so ...


    Rode with these guys out to the trails:


















    Brought a couple cameras & gave one to a friend who got some shots of the GS going through the paces. When 650's started going down it turned into a "wonder what the GS can do" ride


























    I know these trails, but had only ridden them on a KTM 450 previously. Was pleasantly surprised how deftly the GS went through pretty much everything! By far the toughest part of the day was when a 650 got stuck in front of me on a climb and I had to stop the big beast in a very precarious spot and then heft the bike around to a halfway decent starting spot to continue up ... regardless, it got through everything no problem & made for a nice freeway blast home!


















    Check out the butterfly...

    Freeway blast all the way back to Long Beach for a nightcap at Pete's Coffee

    The word "committed" comes to mind when I look at this shot:





    Nice, very very nice.

    Great report! Nice shots, too. Good for you showing those 650s a thing or two.

    I miss Huntington Beach. . . .

    Absolutely fantastic! I love seeing a big GS out there mixing it up in the dirt.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
