The wife and I usually take the Roadstar on a vacation. But thinking about putting the GT1000 in the back of the truck around 27 june and heading out to the peak area and there about's. Thinking might have both worlds this way. It would be a blast with a few guys going out to tare it up..........LOL. Maybe next time..............Also if any of you guys want to go down to deals gap for a few days. We could maybe get some rooms at the gap gas station ( The cross roads) it has a restaurant, rooms, fuel etc. The FZ1 guys are there right now. That was a good ride with them in the fall of 07.

Sounds pretty good.

All I have got is a short bed 07 chevy pickup and a jeep liberty. I do have a 16 foot trailer but it is in kind of rough condition needs tires etc. Em I'll get back with ya. Do you think they have any rooms left................Everything is pretty full where I have checked. The wife has a brother in Jacksonville. A inclosed trailer would be the ticket for two Ducati's................With your bike all colored up.....................it would draw alot of attention..........LOL.

Ha

Got the GT back from Halls this evening. Left it in the back of the truck and switched out of Roadstar to truck. The new rack was in also. Looks like after two days getting Roadstar ready the old Duc came through after all. Man I am beat. Leaving early in the morning.

I'm back

And got pictures................Just got to figure out how to post them. Went up Pikes peak sunday morning. The other two times in 97 and 2000 it was 35 degrees and raining. Last sunday it was 36 at the top and sunny and clear. About little over 3/4 ways down I pulled over to for the last pictures and when we got back on I noticed shift lever was a good 1-2 inchs down farther. Bike would not go into gear so the wife and I coasted down to the bottom and then called a Taxi to go get my pickup about 30 miles away. Took to dealer yesturday and was told there is new designed upgrade parts to fix this my shift stop was bent inside the tranny. I asked them why they just did not put the upgraded parts in my 07 before I bought it in may. They said in order to put the upgraded parts in they needed to take apart and look at first. Geez my trip would have been a little better............. Went to 7 falls, royal gorge,Rocky mountians,Estes park also. Somebody want to come over and put the pictures up.................I'm to stupid I guess..........................LOL
