Good deal but........

I just love the Adventure GS's, extra gas and extra's built in. If the GSA does not interest you three great things about this bike: better seat and Jesse bags and he did not put on miles!!

What happened besides the bang?

Ride a R1200C with 48K miles. Started it up, let it idle. after 20 second heard a loud bang on the left hand side of the bike and it is now running rough. No oil leaks, no smoke from tail pipe. Would...

OEM and just had them sprayed with Line - X

I have had both Jesse and OEM can't lose either way. I have tended towards the Jesse but took off to Alaska 4 days after I bought the GSA bike, so simple choice due to timing.

For $40. I had the...
