Even though I ask if $$ was no issue, is weight? Height an issue? Vote for the most realistic bike if you had the money…. :-)
**Should have added the KTM 990 so if you choose that bikeor the Multistrada and Moto Guzzi vote other and if you can leave a comment which other bike.

Feel free to answer and comment as to why you would buy the bike you picked. If you choose other also feel free to reveal the other bike you would buy and why. I am curious to see how this poll turns out. Comments will help all of us understand decisions being madeand maybe add what you ride now.
Cheryl & I want to thank all the supporters of this BLOG! We hit 50,000 views last night! Since we have been back from our summer trip on August 11th we have more hits to the BLOG then when we were on our trip. Thanks for getting word out, I am seeing more and more referral sites than ever, more forums getting wind of the BLOG and even other ADV riders and web sites.
We have many folks from all ages both men and women alike coming along as we develop the BLOG. As always we are open to suggestions, comments as to how we can make this a better site. So, feel free to share what you want to see and share your thoughts.
Once again we both want to send out a HUGE thanks to everyone and sure hope this continues. :-)
I was on the phone with Gerbing customer support this week and was informed that they are moving all productions from CHINA to NORTH CAROLINA, USA. I think this is great news for Gerbing! They are located in Tumwater, Washington and to have their own production site on the same continent is awesome. Plus, will be nice to see a tag say Made in USA.
We are heading down to their headquarters the weekend of November 6th to get new updated liners. We have the old technology and we are going with the micro wire. We used Gerbing on our summer trip and through out the winter here where we live in BC. We own the T5 gloves too and with the liner, our heated grips and gloves we can comfortable ride in -5 C.
they also said supply might be delayed a bit..they are expecting new stock in the next few weeks but as far as when things will be coming out of North Carolina might be awhile. They said it is a large move to change locations from China to the USA but they are on it.
See our Triumph Tiger and gear review for our thought on Gerbing.
Here is a funny picture of Cheryl in her Gerbing liner coming out of a really bad smelling out house in Boundary Alaska this summer…you see we wore the liner everywhere. ;-)
