Hey folks, there doesn't seem to be much activity here on the regional forum. Got the itch for a fun bike - something different from my Goldwing, and bought an '07 R1200GSA. Rode it back here from St. Louis where I bought it - 1k of back roads to Denver and I'm in love.
Rode up to Rollins Pass the other day to see what off-road is like. FUN! Lots of big puddles, big rocks. My only off-road education had been the previous night's viewing of an instructional DVD, but it worked!
I haven't been a fan of group riding in the past, but I can see where these adventures might be well served by having a little company. I can't get the FAA to file a flight plan for my bike.
