Interesting, I like the narrow seat of the new GS but the old GSA ('08) holds more fuel, especially if you drill the filler neck. I'm still undecided about the styling but I am interested in the...

New Continental Tires

I was checking out the Motorradonline site and I saw these scooter tires and thought the tread pattern would make a great 50/50 tire for the GS. But, alas, they only come in 12 and 13 inch diameters....
