  2. Oh christ...now it's probably 3 full pages of gun control ranting to follow!
  3. Also worth a stop in Telluride if you havent been before.
  4. Today
  5. 1. Dan, I am glad your son is ok. Maryland has strict gun carry laws. It's free range for the bad guys. 2. White color gas tank and gear helps with the hot ass temps out west. 3. The Fag Bag keeps my G19 at the ready for personal protection.
  6. Also news flash. My Son Spencer was mugged at gunpoint after work tonight in Baltimore. Right near his Apt. Took wallet , cell and his car. Other than being shaken up he’s ok
  7. Dude. Brian was referring to the gas tanks color, not the wardrobe. my Safari is the Uber ugly natural color you can see through
  8. @thisismeia Make me a plate

  9. What are you Thankful for?

    Thankful that I don’t have to get up early and go to work, ever.
  10. Not sure if I should listen to fashion advice from a guy wearing a fanny pack!
  11. When I lived out west I use to hear, "White is Right Baby"
  12. Supposedly, you can't easily paint or really put stickers on these plastic tanks. So I can't even paint it another color. Bleh
  13. Old member, first bike

    Hi Mike, I have been a V-Strom owner since 2004. Givi makes a great assortment of top cases as well as another company called Shad. Most are easily mounted to your rear rack so if you find a used one for another bike keep in mind they are easily installed. Top Boxes are great for touring and commuting but just remember to keep the weight down to a minimum especially if you are doing any off asphalt because the high weight can cause some stability issues for new riders. I had a Givi luggage on my 04 and had no issues. Take a look at the V-Strom site: http://www.stromtrooper.com/ The folks over there will tell you what you should do, what you need to do, how you should ride and of course give you at least 500 options as to what is available for your bike even if you did not ask. Also you will receive a lot of opinions of what the V-Strom can't do or should not be tried. Blah Blah Blah. Check out the V-Strom Rally at Ironhorse lodge. http://www.stromtrooper.com/events/396298-2018-eastern-v-strom-rally-stecoah-nc-may-17-20-2018-a.html My Givi Top Case, "empty" on the Dragon 2008

  16. Home sweet home. Time to rest and heal https://t.co/gcfBKYzMlV

  17. Fried-day in NYC

  18. Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

    i'm close to six feet and that sucks because it makes it hard to fold up out of the wind. if i were 5'8" life would be a lot easier.
  19. Million Dollar Hwy is on day 10, has been the whole time.
  20. FWIW, I have heard issues with black plastic tanks being distorted in very hot climates And we WILL be riding through some insane heat at times. In fact, on my favorite ride report I posted yesterday (String in a maze) on the first page he has the issue. Here is a pic I stole from his report showing the distorted black tank Just food fer thought. Also, the Safari Fairing does NOT have a dash panel. It's more designed to work with stock instruments. My plan for my bike is to replace the stock speedo unit with a Vapor Guage.
  21. Ordered full set of 9" Teton from happy trail. Included 43 liter top box. Powder coated black to hide all the dents! Under 1200 during Xmas sale. Not bad.
  22. "In the state of Colorado of the United States of America there’s a special highway built in the late 1880's: the Million Dollar Highway, part of the San Juan Skyway. It's one of the nation’s most spectacular drives. You'll be on the "outside" for a while with a hell of a view to your right (let the passenger look. You'll want to watch the road) " http://www.dangerousroads.org/north-america/usa/635-million-dollar-highway-usa.html
  23. Looks pretty epic! All I can say is that the Million Dollar Highway in Colorado should not be missed. Shannon and I took our honeymoon on the FJR Summer before last and it's an absolutely stunning ride. We used Montrose, Co as home base for 3 days and rode to Silverton and also to Moab, as loops. I'd suggest going from Moab, UT to Ridgeway, CO then down the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton and then Durango. That's a really spectacular ride. Goes from desert red rock canyons to Aspen stands at 11k feet. It's really worth the detour. And the back roads outside of Moab that go into Colorado offer incredible views. CO-141 is awesome and twisty. CO-145 runs along a wide canyon then up and over a mountain range. Anyway....other then the fact that you are skipping Zion National Park and the Million Dollar Highway, I think this looks incredible! The Million Dollar Highway is close enough you could alter your route and fit it in. Zion, maybe not. But I think you'll find Moab to Durango is a much better ride than Moab to Cortez. Just my two cents. TFTI, BTW
  24. Wait a bit...he's supposed to be sending me pictures tonight showing condition. I would then connect the two of you if needed. BTW...he just sent pictures of the tank.....it's black Still interested?
  25. Quinn The Britannia is still mounted to the forks like stock. Ed and I are interested in Rally Fairing that are frame mounted and further out front, to create a MUCH larger air pocket, and removing all that weight from your steering. Thanks for the suggestion though. They ARE nice for what they are
