    Wouldn’t help me much. I have a 150 mile bladder.

    Hello

    It is winter here, it will only get to the mid 80s today. I just got back from a 150 mile ride for brunch. So when you meet me on the road will you still wave?

    No, about average for coffee or lunch. My longest one-way was just under 7000 miles when I rode my F650GS back to Alaska. My youngest son rode with. It was the best trip ever.

    I hope they get this bike rolling, delivered, sorted and supported- soon.

    It looks like Honda will be nipping at the market soon with the XRE 300-

    The BMW G 310 GS. Everyday adventures.
    Be spontaneous, break the routine, and make everyday life into an adventure. Whether it’s your daily commute to work in the city, a trip through the countryside, or through forest trails and rough roads, the G 310 GS promises pure riding joy for everyone. It carries you through the urban jungle and allows you to take on any challenge with precision, confidently and carefree. With this machine, adventures don’t have to be big to be unforgettable.

    It seems like it's been a long time since Honda made an error.

    Great! So when is BMW going to make a bike designed for less than premium, high octane gasoline?
