southern california is moto heaven. still in break in mode but got a chance to take the bike to the canyons this week and get filmed by a buddy on a gs adventure. no performance mods as of yet, no changes to stock suspension settings, stock tires, etc. just getting to know the bike, so far so good. very happy with my choice.

You pretty much left that gs in the dust :) Good stuff. I haven't even finished getting the tires scrubbed in yet!

quite the contrary, my buddy on the gs kept up just fine; those bikes are underrated in terms of performance if they are in the right hands. he's a very capable rider, plus i was not going over 8,000 rpms and i wanted to make sure he was in camera range :nerd:

Man great video you show how capable that bike is with all things being stock. I have never been to California I sure would like to make a trip out there with my bike.

Tony, there is nothing more painful than a drive up around Rock Store...but, instead of being on a bike, you are in a rental car.

Very nice!. Also appreciate the fact that you can just hear the engine and no music. Love to hear the bikes engine. Couple of questions:

What color bike?
What type of Windscreen is that?
What camera are you using?

Thanks,

bike is red/black. the windscreen in the video is of the 1200gs that is following me, i'm the one being filmed. :nerd:. i did install an OEM screen on my bike, looks great, not much wind protection.

he's using a sena 10c attached to his helmet.

Frankly, I see no need for a windscreen. Except to have something to mount a cellphone behind. I've done several 500 mile rides at speeds between 90 and 120 with a GPS mounted behind my gauges. It takes some time for the body to build up the muscles behind the neck, but after it does the wind against the body no longer has any negative effect.

California is one of the mecca's for sport rides! As a west-coast canuck, it's a pilgrimage I try to make at least once a year!
