    Hola, notacop,

    yes it does run but I cant ride as Im in a neck brace from a previous accident on a bike which I totalled. Got this with the insurance money and a little extra. Had a Vstrom 1000 before..
    Have a a few fractures on my spine so will be a while before I ride again.

    Thanx for all the welcomes. Cant wait to get back to riding as a small accident is keeping me from riding till July as Im in a neck brace from a previous motorcycle accident. Great riding up here for dual sport bikes in the wine country. Lots of good fire roads and back country roads to the ocean here.
    This seems like a really good site for info and all and look forward to sharing my riding experiences.

    GBRF,
    I had a get off in Utah thanks to a dim wit in a truck pulling a boat trailer thing. The Ins Co, his, gave me a large pain and suffering check and all I had was a concussion and a shoulder abrasion.
    Well, I had a heart attack a couple weeks later. Dang the bad luck! Of course my cardiologist didn't think the two were related.
    I hope they rewarded you handsomely.
    Be well and hope to see you on the road.

    Nota,

    Dang thats some rough luck there. Hope your doing better now.
    I did get a good insurance check to put a down on this F800GS. It is a great bike but bummer I can only stare at it for 7 more weeks before I can take her out for a spin. It will be my main commuter as I have a 60 mile round trip for work, 4 days a week. So it is way better than my Diesel that only gets 12 mpg.
