Lands the same as a GS

Yip - like a piano!



On the pre 2008 1200GS you would be turning around to fetch the bashplate.

(Reminder ...add those photos of the HP2 or post 2008 bashplate conversion for those who don't know about it yet)

The video of the jump.

Scared a few spectators.

This was the winning jump.

Impressive!

was it a 950 or 990?
There are no short cuts to anywhere worth going!
Performance is paramount, niceties only exist if it doesn't affect performance.

Don't rush it, it's helmet time you need, not a destination. Take it easy.
