We decided to take a break in a shady part of the pass and wait there for James to catch up.

After about 30 minutes, we started hearing a bike coming up the pass. It would stop every now and then, stay quiet for a while and then start up again. Soon James appeared around the bend and we were all relieved that he arrived in one piece....... well sort of  :pot:






James toppled over a couple of time and punctured the pod on the 1200 GSA. Luckily he had some KTM tape to repair the damage  :peepwall:

Some in the group was really relieved to reach the "summit", little did they know that this stop was just for pics of the view and a bit of a rest. :pot: >:D

I haven't seen a lot of GS850's around here but I must say it's a good looking bike and I love the rim design. I am a bit soft, prefer tubeless  :peepwall:

Great pictures Noneking, you are slowly but surely becoming the RR King  :deal:
