Eid Mubarak Dr. Yaqoob!
The trip was a totally last minute plan as I really needed a break from the hectic schedule I had experienced since our tour up north, and Fort Munro popped into my mind. After Googling and seeing some of the pics, I had to go! I'd love to do another trip up there when I have some time, so I'm seeing if there is some interest here on the board. I think I have one definite "yes" so far.
With regard to the GS, yes, do collect your commission immediately from Pak Suzuki! I'm loving the bike although a few small issues have surfaced that will hopefully be sorted out under the warranty. Really though, for the equivalent of CDN $1000, it's and amazing deal.
How are your GS adventure touring modifications coming along, BTW? Let me know.
