I should add that that's not me on the bike. They said I was much too good looking.

I see you have the fast color like me. How did your bike wind up in the ad? I hope you got paid, a company like Olympia can afford to rent a bike for the day right :)

Olympia posted up on another forum that they wanted a K1200GT for a photoshoot down in Maggie Valley NC. So, I responded (you don't have to twist my arm too hard for a ride down there). They were offering the jacket or pants of your choice as "payment". Once I got down there, the weather wasn't so good and they kept moving the shoot location around. We eventually wound up in Chatanooga TN (Raccoon Mountain). After the shoot, they offered me a jacket and pants for sticking with them and being flexible with my time. Kevin and his wife (Olympia Motosports owners) are first class folks. :thumb:

Nice pics. Too bad the orange jacket is so ugly. :D

I was gonna offer my grey GT, but they said I'd have to wash it first. :rotf:

Oh wait, maybe that's what the girl with the towels was for. Damn. ;)

Here's a few more from that day...

Does anyone happen to know what screen that is on the Tiger? My Tiger is very wind challenged, currently running a MRA with Laminar lip, can you say NOISY.
