Funhouse Ride - older rear Qualifier

2008 K1200S. Rear Bridgestone dead at 2100 miles. I had forgotten about a new Qualifier I had in a storage area, found it recently & mounted it Sunday. Built late 2006.

Cool weather these days, so I took it easy. Qualifiers are slow to warm in warm weather - so cool weather all the worse, hence the funhouse ride. Open the throttle SOME coming out of a slow turn & the bike pivots around as the rear spins & goes sideways. Some fun.

Maybe I'll mount an even older front so I can go straight, leaned over.

K100RS 1985
2008 GS Adventure
