Hello from Iowa, USA

Greetings all. Recently bought an 07 R1200GSA with 34,000 miles. First bike I've owned in 20 years, great to be riding again.

In middle of 36,000 mile service, tore down rear end to replace swingarm boots this weekend. Valve adjustment is up next. Getting good use out of the Haynes manual and YouTube.

If all goes well will have it to Upper Peninsula of Michigan Labor Day Weekend (1st weekend in Sept).
