Driven – The Arctic Circle

Every once in awhile I come across a video that just resonates with me…I mean everyone should watch this especially if you are an adventurer.  This guy Ed from New Mexico rode 10,000 miles in 26 days and how he sees Canada and Alaska is spot on.  I LOVE, absolutely LOVE his attitude, sense of […]

Add a two piece adjustable height seat, adjustable shield and shaft would be almost perfection!  LOVE IT! SHOULD have called it the F800GSA!!!!!!
