I enjoy sarcasm (maybe you noticed?). Erik Imken (fellow Twitterer) brought this to my attention: a HILARIOUS parody on GS ownership. Much like my opinion on the bulk of SUV owners in the US, there are also GS owners who don't properly exercise their motorcycles. I am one of them, probably with a ratio of 90:10 street to dirt. Sometimes when I do properly exercise her, she gets so excited she jumps in my lap. In any event, I have a great sense of humor about it, have been through two separate on- and off-road accidents with her, and both of us are still alive and kicking.
If you thought that video was classic, check out the initial video this parody was based on: riding a Kawasaki KLR travelling southbound through the Americas. My sentiments exactly. A great video with a great message. Manufacturers should be paying more attention to creatives like this.
