GSTwin doesn't have any available photo storage space. You have to upload them to a separate photo hosting website (flickr, photobucket, etc.) and then use the IMG tag with the link to the photo to display it in your post. Or, if you use an app like Tapatalk, it has its own photo hosting server and makes adding photos to your post really easy.

Amazing pictures, Stevo!  I'd love to see more, if you have.   :cheers:

I second this. Beautiful photos. I wish we had mountains in Ohio  :dunno_white:

Thank you...I take it all for granted, I was born here and I am very lucky to live and ride in the Pacific Northwest where everything is usually cold, wet and green or way too frigging hot!

Great photos Stevo! Thats me and my Dad on the far left in your Mount St. Helens photo. Its confusing because I have changed the fairing color on my GS. That was a fun ride.

Here are some photos I am double posting from the Odds n Ends selfie thread:
These are from the road trip my fiancÚ and I did around the western states last September. 2-up on Smudgy.

What kind of windshield do you have? Does it work well?

Looks like some sort of Madstad setup??

Yes, it is a Madstad setup.
Until recently they had it listed on their website. Since the website update they took it down but I bet they would still make one for you on special order. Most of their set ups use the same robo brackets and screens they just fabricate different mounting brackets. On the GS500F its a metal windscreen that replaces the stock screen and the robo brackets bolt to that.

Its the best thing ever. Like riding a Goldwing. I often forget to put my helmet face shield down because even at 60 mph you only get a flutter of air.
I really don't like wind noise so it was worth the price of admission for me. Madstad makes their stuff in the USA and its super high quality but it is expensive. With earplugs in there is 0 wind noise. Seriously 0. I am 6' tall if that makes a difference.

I'll probably put a Madstad screen on any bike I buy from now on. I like it that much. Previously I tried the Zero Gravity bubble, their touring screen, and their touring screen plus a Laminar lip. All of those were worse than the stock screen. The stock screen is actually pretty good for wind noise but not great for winter/rain riding.

Really?! I was just going to order the Zero Gravity Touring tonight...I was hoping it would reduce the wind from being directed pretty much directly at my chest and up my helmet (I'm currently using a dual sport helmet; have a regular helmet on order). This really stinks. I thought I read on this very forum that the ZG Touring made a night and day difference/improvement over the stock wind screen...I'm so confused...

Its going to depend a lot on how tall you are and what helmet you use (dual sport helmets being some of the loudest). The issue I had was that the touring screen moved the wind blast to exactly at my neck line. That made it worse than the stock screen. Adding the laminar lip didn't interface well with the touring screen and gave me a lot of buffeting. I rode that way for a long time but when a rock shot a hole through my zero gravity screen I used it as an excuse to try something different.

The Madstad screen actually gets the wind above my helmet visor and the smart design of it means there is very little buffeting once you get it adjusted to you. That takes while because it is nearly infinitely adjustable up/down and tilt.

I am 5'11". How tall are you? Are there other options similar to Madstad?

I am 6' tall, like I said 2 posts ago.

Nothing quite like the Madstad, especially for the GS500. Closest thing would be the Zero Gravity touring screen with the Laminar lip or some other screen extender on the top.

My current cell-phone background.  Applied a filter called "engraving" and this was the result.  Looks like it was done with chalk or something.

A waterfall?  In the desert?  Witchcraft!



Ok, maybe "waterfall" is a bit too grandiose a term  :laugh:
Still...

Been too long since I rode up the mountain.  There was a massive fire up there the end of June and pretty much all of July has been nothing but storms all around it.  Finally the monsoons died down a bit and gave me the chance.
Wish I could have gone further up (maybe made it 1/4 of the way) but I rode right after I got off work in the early evening and didn't have my clear shield with me, turned around as soon as I got this picture and even so made it home maybe 15 minutes after the sun had completely set.
FYI, riding at night with a light-tint shield (mirror finish) CAN be done, but it's super sketchy...
