I always felt like it was harder to pick up my KLR because it laid down flat.
Great response. Horses for courses I believe the phrase is.No doubt the GS can perform and has capabilities way beyond mine. I just have no desire to take is off-road because of the weight.
Ive been on DS rides where ounces feel like pounds and pounds like tons. I was going n my DR650 and was not having pounding it through the rocks and up/down the mountain look. Several of the guys on lightweight Euros as they easily glided past me commented on how they would not take such a heavy beast like the DR where I was.
I'm glad I finished the ride but a portly bike sapped all the fun out of it.
Thankyou. I'll dare to post a picture when I finish the actual guitar that will be payment for the GS. It's a departure from my usual style, concert classicals, as it's a carved Jazz guitar in the style of Benedetto I think a nice shot with it leaning against the Beemer would be the thing. I've made guitars for my friend in the past, that was how we met in the 70's. This one will be very special. I'm enjoying making it almost as much as riding the bike.Beautiful workmanship on the guitars - and I'm glad you're enjoying the bike.
