    Road Giant?

    I was describing the rally events to my long suffering wife who has a fifty mile butt so never rides with me. She raised an interesting question when I talked about the GS Giant event. "Do they have anything for road bikes?" she asked. "Like those obstacle courses motorcycle cops compete on?"

    It sounded like an interesting idea but I had no idea if it had ever been tried before...
    '12 R1200GSA for solo rides
    '10 R1200GSA with Hannigan dual sport sidecar for rides with Tulliver

    Mostly DQ to DQ, or maybe Wafflehouse to Wafflehouse I think.

    Ex-director David Grant tried something in 2012, called the GT Giant. I am not going to comment because I've already PO'd the PTB enough for one week.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
