For my friend who thinks he can handle it.
I'll bring my title along so we can even trade at the end of the trip.

I seem to remember you trying some of those same moves at JoMoCo with different results.

Amazing! They make it look like such a user friendly machine. Is it really that easy to ride that 500 lb pig?

"easy" is a subjective word. When it tips you feel the weight.

There are a few more of those vids ... very nice. Check out the KTM Super Enduro vids ... even better. For some strange reason, I did a lot of research on those two bikes this past week?

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

I just read up about the new GS800. Sounds like a pretty sweet machine with a little less ass to drag around.

Guys maybe it's just me but I didn't really see anything very impressive there. They didn't take any big hits from deep trenches at high speeds. They didn't climb any steep rocky inclines. They didn't track through tight wood over roots and such. They just barely bounded over a small hump on the ground leaving the ground about 12". So they were pretty much playing around out on almost level dirt. You can do pretty much the same thing on your 919. Oh and they didn't show the guy who dump his try to pick it up either did they?

I think they would make a pretty nice indestructible touring bike though.

Having spent some time on one of those I have to say they are great machines.
