I rented a 9T a couple of years ago to ride down from SF to WSB races at Laguna Seca...It was a hoot to ride...

Curious what you think is different from any other Camhead motor ...

Guess that answers the question as to whether you're a Coke or Pepsi man!

Beautiful motorcycle Bob!

It has a gold tooth.



Been curious about these since they came out, so found a new 2016 at a huge discount and brought it home yesterday.

Looking forward to some reviews after you get some saddle time! So are you and your crew going to Colorado this summer? Which bike will you bring?

I'll actually bypass Colorado this year, Bill. Hard to do because it's my second favorite state but this year four of us trailer to Cut Bank, MT, then take the long way up through BC to Yellow Knife, NT to visit Buffalo Airways and their DC-3 (C-47) operations. Then come back through Alberta along through Jasper and Banff to Montana's Glacier NP/Cut Bank, pick up truck and trailer and come on home. Should take about 3 weeks to a month. PepsiHead will get the nod for this one.
Tell all the Bubba's in Paonia that Bob says Hey.

Gonna be a great summer, DV.

That's kind of a rare breed in that color is it not?

I am guessing the F800GS is gone?

No I hope to keep the F800GS. This is my third and I really like it, having sellers remorse every time I traded it. And it is at the point where it won't bring much if I tried to sell.
Color on the AT is nice I think. The often seen red/black/white is too busy for my eye. Which is why I like the low chromatic of your bikes. That said, they had a 2017 in a nice burgundy but it was DCT and about $2000 more than mine. No thanks.
