    I used to live in Loganville but I now live in Blairsville. That's about a 2 hour ride.

    Then again, I've seen Mr. Ratley. You may not want to disturb those plugs.
    Wow Brian, should I be scared?

    I would like to thank Don for bringing this idea up, as well as supplying the motorcycle for this project. I'm honored that you would even consider doing something like this. Thanks so much!

    As Don mentioned, this will be a project bike of sorts. The intention is to get it running reliably (if there are any issues there) and make it pretty as well as get it to be a mean touring bike. I plan on documenting the whole process via the main website. That way anyone passing by can see what's going on with it. It's been a while since a touched a GS so I may be askng a few questions your way. I look forward to working with you all on this.

    Frank and soon, Yellow Frank

    Done properly, it doesn't even look all that bad on a BIG bike.





    It is certainly VISIBLE.

    That would be a cool demonstrator of sensible mods and updates - the kind of things most owners would be interested in doing to their own bikes to keep them reliable and safe. Nothing one-off and expensive though; keep it in reach.
