    So glad @Bruno commented. Hadn't seen this post until now. Normally try to donate earlier in the year but it slipped my mind. I don't even own a GS anymore but still visit this site almost daily....

    Congrats and color me jealous. I think Yamaha hit a home run with that bike. Can't wait to see it in person.

    It's certainly not too early! I've been thinking about it since I rode away from the rally last year. My calendar is blocked for June 10 - 13, assuming it will be those dates. Sure am looking...

    Hey! I resemble that remark! You'd think by now I'd learn, but this happened to me just last year. Also, I wasn't alone. Three of us on that trip replaced tires mid-trip due to underestimating tire...

    I watched the race and was entertained. Wondering if the fairings and bags are stock, or maybe just ornaments made of carbon fiber. Probably the latter.

    Do you think there's enough interest to...

    Left out early Saturday morning to return Joe's bike and recover mine from his garage. Weather ended up being nice, so we got out late morning and rode about 120 miles around the Cherokee and...

    People keep talking about the amazing mileage they get from these R5s. But mine is totally shagged with less than 5k miles. Weird.

    Our bikes weigh roughly the same and you ride at least as hard as...

    Interesting. Is it still under warranty?

    I've gotta believe you have the highest mileage example of this model year on the road today. The Triumph dealer must be amazed. I wonder what they think...

    Not today, but Sunday I rode to Joe Nardy's house south of Knoxville. It rained most of the day, but was still a nice ride. Plan was for us to ride the area Monday, then I had a lovely back-roads...

    Ammo is in very short supply. As well as firearms. Also, hard still to find Lysol spray and some cleaning stuff. Store shelves seem to be mostly back to normal, but not quite.

    I feel your pain. My 77 GS750 had a tough throttle. I used a cramp buster. It helped. Some people hate them, but it made the bike ridable for me. You can pick them up for like $10. So it's a pretty...

    Wow! Lots of cool bikes there. I can sort of see why someone would want to do that. Maybe they consider it an investment (buy low, sell high?). At least they're out of the weather. While I'd like to...

    Home safe at about 3:30PM CDT. Real nice ride home. Ran into some rain the last hour or so, but no big deal.

    All I have to say is...Best. Rally. Ever.
