buy a triple black GSA, you could have one of these. thumbsup

I know it added at least 50 HP and weighs about 35 lbs. less than the stocker. rofl And the sound, now the bike sounds like a Porsche. grin Worth every penny. It gets the Marty Hill approval. clap

Oh man, the rocks on Black Bear are going to chew the finish right off of that beautiful pipe! wink grin Now, I'm thinking a Porsche would be quite the pleasure to listen to all day! thumbsup
Although, Bill may disagree after 24 hrs at full tilt! revit

I Hope I get to hear it out in Colorado this summer! thumbsup

Pat, I have one trip now planned with my friend in Portland. He has agreed to come one more time since last year on our Oregon ride he could tell I'm slowing way down. Leave Aug. 2nd heading to Durango first. He wants to ride the train. Then over to Canon City to ride a couple easy roads north up to Cripple Creek and Victor. Then over to Salida for a day or so as I want to see how gnarly Taylor Pass is. Not planning to ride Taylor. Schofield and Devils Punchbowl was enough for me a couple years ago. And then to Ouray one more time. We have a couple spots we have not been to yet and we will probably ride the entire Alpin Loop one last time. Taking the KTM's for this trip.

I think I am good to go sometime in July on the big bike for some road cruising if I can work out the times to not interfere with the Aug trip. Hope we can hookup.

That sounds like a very excellent trip, Doug! thumbsup

Now I was just informed that June would be a better month to go because my two kids are still in school. (Less Babysitter Money) I just told my one buddy that was interested in going (no not Jim he went all Harley on me) grin July. So, let me sort the month and go from there, I'll let you know soon.

PS....middle of June still iffy on snow blocking paved passes you think?

Late June maybe offroad but I bet paved stuff is ok? Early to mid July better. I am going to Oregon to ride the BlackDog dual sport ride June 3rd and 4th as a tune up for Aug. All this based on health as I am having a couple problems at present. Sucks getting old.

Pat, just talked to someone in CO. Says record snow in San Juans this year so going early Aug like my friend and I plan maybe makes sense for that area off road.

Doug, makes perfect sense for Aug if off-road is your main focus. thumbsup
My buddy is a Tiger 800 pilot that has minimal off road experience so, I don't think I should coax him into anything too much over his head. Heck, we do have to keep it a little bit exciting though or what's the point. whistle

Bill, do you mind getting me info or a number on your storage yard out in Salida. I think that would be an excellent starting point for us. Thanks! wave
Do you plan on being out there this year? Months/Dates?

Doug/Bill suggestions on big DS bike routes in the area would be greatly appreciated. yes

Pat
