The top box locking handle is missing a clip on the locking mechanism and thus it is possible that the top box may detach from the machine.

GS800 Wanderlust.

This bike would be wasted on me.  With the "wife and kid" lifestyle that I'm currently in I don't have the ability fully appreciate what it's capable of.  And to be honest it's a bit to "high techy" for my usual tastes.  I like em simple and rugged.  But all that aside,  I still want one!

One More Fantastic GS Wanderlust Shot.

Thanks to EnderTheX over on the ADV Rider Board for these last two GS pics.

Not Motorcycle Related... But way cool.

Every once in a while I find something that is only loosely related to motorcycles (or often not at all) and I regret that I have nowhere to comment on it. I tried starting a blog based on that but I've got enough to do with the ones I have so it went stale.

So I've decided that I'm going to create a new category called "Not Motorcycle Related, But Way Cool" for that occasional item that is too cool to pass up. I promise I won't wear it out and abuse the privilege by posting an endless stream of crap. My first example is something that "might" actually relate to smaller cc bikes. The Bamboo Framed Motorcycle. Now I'm no tree hugger (see my 2-stroke page) but I would love to have one of these. I could imagine a small moped would be very possible along these lines.   Here's a link to a company that builds them:
