Hi Guys. Thanks for having me. You know, every once in a while, I see dual sport guys talking bout "big bikes" etc.. Then I figure out they're talking about 650's or a particular 690, or maybe even a F800... Then I hop on my R1200GSA and scurry along. This is a totally different ball game. and Thanks for bringing XLADV.com. My name is Mike. I live in the Bay Area, Northern California. You may ( mostly not) see me lurking the BARF or ADVRider.com as 'myblunt'. I look forward to hanging out 'round these parts. Below - Overlooking Mono Lake from Cottonwood Canyon Rd, South of Bodie.
