    Yeah, Paul:)

    I'd love to see more of the Redmond pics, if anyone has them, regarding the GS Trials and other GS stuff. It will help promote the PA. Rally as well. I happen to have had the wonderful challenge of Chairing the Redmond GS Events and Ian did to in Tennesse and this coming year. PLEASE help us with your pics if you can. Its great fuel for the GS flame. Thx, Randy Owens"Polarbear"

    Pick your poison...

    There are two options for a GS Gypsy Tour that we're scoping out.

    What's your pleasure.... the wilds of West Virginia or the Alleghenies of PA?

    So I tried to fix a typo and made my post totally worse off.

    Here's what I meant to say:

    West Virginia always wins out for us!

    I did a little research on an Adventure Detour last weekend where something like this could happen...

    This is an amazing picture to me. Here we see two guys fiddling with their bikes while the presumed owner of the downed $20+K GS Adventure takes a picture.

    It is amazing. GS riding etiquette requires the rider of the downed bike to pose next to it while the co-riders take the pictures.

    Hmmmmm?

    Water, Mud, Oh MY! Will we survive the rigors of "Ian the Giant". Hehehe. "Polarbear", I vote W.VA. Did some off road there at the RA Rally and found the wilderness of W.VA remarkably wet and entertaining. Happy Trails

    GS Giant and wandering

    I vote W VA as well...never get enough time down there it seems...something to do with the odd stint of work and living north of the border. Hope to make it down early this year and help out with GS Giant.

    Great logo...so how do we start an initiative to get some funds for T-shirts?

    Hi Bruce - got you & versysgirl's em and thanks for volunteering.

    To be sure, it's possible to do the GS Giant event *and* volunteer.

    in fact, volunteers get a few extra bonus points.....

    we're twisting some sponsor's arms and i'm pretty sure we'll get enough dough for t-shirts.

    OK to ride the KLR, as long as I remove the KW logos and attach a few roundels??

    It's a long story - had my left foot in a cast for almost a year, off this Tuesday. 02 GS is about as tricked for offroad as is possible, but it is going on the market. Foot and leg will never be 100%, bike is just too large.

    are you suggesting a GS wannabe option?

    seriously, we are wracking our hearts & minds on this, because the event is about adventure riding and brotherhood.

    we will come up with something that works, count on it.

    you watch.... someone is just bound to win this on a Super Ten.

    No, how about a large GS " has been - over the hill option"



    Have to start considering the smaller GS in the future. The R50/2 will always keep me in the fold.
