The new bike looks good.        

I got a chance to see Alan's '07 bike in person in Lynchburg, VA this weekend. Both Alan and I were entered in the VOID II rally. It looks good.

Alan crash tested the aluminum panniers during a transition from pavement to dirt, I didn't see the bike after that happened, we weren't riding together. I kept expecting to see him at one of the bonuses since we had planned similar routes. I didn't find out about the low-side until we met back at the hotel.

I'm sure he'll have pictures. Fortunately he said there was little damage to him or the bike, but it did keep him from finishing the rally.

I rode the V-Strom, it felt like I'd entered a tow-truck in a road race. Next time I'll ride a 250 if it's only a 12 hour rally.
