I just picked it up and look forward to riding it home tomorrow. I'm too excited to sleep!

As it happens, I've been reading ADVrider a lot lately. I'm currently reading through the Striking Viking's epic journey.

Nice bike. I'm jealous.

DAAAMMM…Girl! How many bike do you have now, or did I miss something? That was one of my choices when I was looking into a MC instead of a scoot. It's a great bike. Enjoy.

Thanks all! This one fits perfectly between my other bike and the scoot. I think I will call it my geocaching and ride to Alaska bike.

See my new pics in the Photo Gallery!

How cool!

Enjoy the GS. We have a guy at the office with one. He has it set up with PIAA lights, a GPS, luggage and tons of other stuff (he had to wire in another fuse block to run it all). I think he does Iron B*tts on it.

I've got this disease with bicycles. I just bought myself another mountain bike and my 2 year old his first last weekend. That now makes for eleven total. This infliction really tends to flame up around bonus and tax return time.

Sick. Sick. Sick.

Sweet looking bike ! I'm going to tell my wife that I need a "geocaching and ride to Alaska bike." and see how it goes.

Not that I'm admitting anything but...

Our family's motorcycle (1), scooters (2), bicycles (6 !!), razor push scooter (1), razor electric scooter (1), and "big-wheel" style trikes (2) occupy over half of our garage and my poor old truck has been banished to the driveway where it gathers a protective layer of dust, pollen and cobwebs while it waits for its once / week drive (gotta stir the oil occasionally so the seals don't dry out).

I too am have an eye on the tax return and am wondering about whether I "need" another bicycle. Actually, I'm fully convinced, but there is the matter of the family comptroller...

Riding the Triumph Daytona 675 when the Triumph demo truck was in town last week didn't help matters either. If you get a chance, do not ride this motorcycle. Just back away. Slowly.

Cindy, it's time to admit that this compulsion to keep accumlating 2-wheeled motorized vehicles is completely out of control...

CONGRATULATIONS!
