The Story

I bought this beautiful bike from a fellow ADV inmate in Fredericksburg, VA in 2012 as a gift to myself for graduating Navy flight training. I rode it home two days after christmas from VA to Pensacola, Florida.

While in Florida we rode all over the gulf coast region, from Tampa to Houston, and everything in between. I spent a lot of time on the red clay dirt roads of northwest Florida, and took in many sunset rides along the beaches of Mississippi, and Alabama.

In 2015 I moved the bike to be where all GS bikes wish to be: amongst the mountains. She has since lived in Fort Collins, CO within spitting distance of Rocky Mountain National Park and points beyond. She has been well treated, riding only the finest roads and trails from Colorado to Oregon, and everything in between... and the rest, is history.
