Yes, I'm quite partial to the red, white, and blue AT. I'm surprised there isn't a thread for this one.

Let's see yours.

Here's my '17 from yesterday in cherokee nf. It was a deceivingly beautiful day. Fast twisties, warmish temps into the mid 50°s F, however a wintery scene was found on back side of these mountains. It was a day of mud, slush, snow, and ice. One particular section was so iced over, steep, off camber, I lost all traction, sliding towards the abyss... feet down, brakes on, backwards. I managed to get the kickstand down and got stopped. I pivot turned the bike and got out a different way.

Come on summer!

Love it..... You need to do some low light photography so we can see what your aux lighting setup does.

I'm thinking something like this.......

At night with them all on, it is essentially day time for at least 3/4 of a mile in front of my bike. Two dangers of using them are,
one. They make on coming reflective signs blindly bright.
Two. When I first go back to JUST my low beam, to me, it looks like I’m driving by candlelight. They totally ruin your night vision..

AT-D: The AT certainly stands over the cruisers ... no kidding.
Lol, yea Every once and a while I’ll ask one of them what their bike is going to be when it grows up and too, not to be intimidated by my bike because it towers over them . All in all a great bunch of guys, who actually pointed out on that ride that they/we need to find at least one other member that I can “play in the dirt with”..

My circle of friends who ride have an eclectic collection of bikes. Only one will get on dirt with me, he has a Klr and an r100gs. I do enjoy seeing all the variety and folks not hung up on stereotypes and other B.S. One of my favorite times of the year is the barber vintage festival. It's absolutely awesome to see so many different bikes and be around the folks that love them as well. You should get your crew to come down.
