Spent my last night at Junee, they had a fund raising for a local girl at the sports ground so all sorts of things going on including a car show and it just happens that a Can-Am 'Spyder' group were having a weekend away at the holiday park where I was staying.

Yes Thomo you have, I came to this conclusion yesterday. Took my new B for a mountain ride 1st time yesterday, I’m wrapped with it.
A couple of Harley guys may have been converted to a K bike who were riding behind us.

I’m off to Buchan today, 3.5hr ride, following up with locals who were caught in the Bushfires last year. Due to Covid lockdown haven’t been able to get back there since the fires went through.
Staying the night and ride back to Melbourne tomorrow morning.

Baz and Geoff I’m not much of a photo taking Lad, I never remember to get my phone out. But I will do my best to take a few shots

If we have to give credit to anyone you guys have given so much by sharing fantastic photos and I for one thank you also love them. I take my hat off to both of you for taking the time to take some great memories and share the rides you do with us.

Goeff you will be proud of me, I got back from the 4 day ride and washed the New Bike with the Karcher pressure washer. Soaped it up and gave the Big Black Pig a good old scrub then washer her down. I got a bit excited so i pulled the GSA 1250 out and gave him a wash too.

Well i learnt alot about this new bike. " I love it " but had to tame my riding a bit in the tight roads. I have worn the little bolt things off the foot boards and bottom of the bars each side have scratches from going to hard in the tight mountain roads. Im used to the lean angles of the GS so it took a little getting used too. I was a little frustrated with the lean angles, but i understand its not what the bike is designed for.
The open roads with sweeping bends from Bombala, Delegate down to Orbost the bike loved and so did I. Lets say i had a couple of nice quick feels of the top end and she enjoyed showing me.

The Lads riding behind me loved watch sparks fly in the tight stuff, ( may not be able to ride it on High Fire Risk Days ). I think i need to see if there is a way of getting better lean angles. the foot boards and bars restrict this ( open to suggestions ) but not boring ones like ride nicely.

I did much the same roads 2yrs ago on the GSA

K1600 B is fantastic on the open roads and sweeping bends ( it likes going fast ) Sargent seat with backrest was great comfort. Easy to ride all day could have done more ks but the other riders needed breaks.
GSA 1250 More fun and alot quicker in the tight stuff. 1 wheel out of tight corners, bit more responsive.

That's right Damo, you need to stick to a tall glass of fresh mountain air with a side order consisting of a stick of celery and a crouton... enjoy 😁

Damo, I had the same issue with the floorboards on my Victory and Roadmasters the reason I did not buy the B 1600, great bikes but restricted in the corners and roundabouts take the floorboards away and you can drop the bike over much more. But having the boards does allow a bit more comfort on longer trips while cruising. We all have a few compromises with bikes and riding styles.
