    Yeah, surprised there is not more smack talk between the GS and GSA riders.

    I guess we could start something here. Let's see, MarkM owned an RS and I owned an S. Now MarkM owns a GS and I own a GSA.

    WIN - WIN for me !!!

    The Trace is nice, just too slow a pace for a S!
    We both agree with Sammy Hagar, he can't drive 55 either! . But the views on the Trace are unbeatable. I just arrived in MS and thank goodness for the Trace!

    Nice S. There is kind of a S/RS rivalry here. I own an RS, but I love the lines of the S. I have never ridden The Trace. A couple of friends rode it last two years ago and they enjoyed the road. Someday I would like t ride the length of The Trace. What would you allow to do such a ride...2-3 days?

    Thanks MarkM and bluehole, I love my S. It handles beautifully, has great acceleration, is great for touring, and looks like it could have been designed yesterday despite being introduced 15 years ago. The exhaust pipes under the seat really look sharp and are very un-BMW for the era. I also own an '03 R11050R so no love lost for other "R" bikes... the "K" bikes, on the other hand...

    The Trace, according to Google Maps is about 450 miles from Nashville to Natchez. Given the 50 mph speed limit, you could comfortably do it in two days while still allowing time for all the informative stops and historical markers. Natchez is a great little town. Check out the Natchez Trace website, it has tons of info. I'm also happy to send some recommendations. I'm finding that the small roads here in MS are not always well maintained, but the Trace, given it is a national park, is a great road and free of traffic...you could go a few minutes with no one else on the road. Just watch out for wild turkeys...those things are fast!

    You call an all-out, Hatfields/McCoys blood rivalry "kind of"? Man, I've obviously been too nice to you and your ilk.

    Welcome bkellyjr! Ever since SeabeckS retired from the board, the RS types have been trying to impose their values on the truly chosen ones - S owners. Henzilla and I have been conducting a holding action which, with more support, will transition to an all out frontal assault as spring arrives. Keep posting pictures of your S - it keeps Bluehole unbalanced.

    Uh-Oh! He's back!

    Missed all the abuse from the RS contingent, so decided to re-join for one more year of riding. Been busy building a new home, but the bike is insured, serviced, covered and ready to go again!

    Cheers! B

    Thanks! Perhaps Bluehole can get a quantity discount on that pink stuff.
