Same leak on my '14 GSW.

Be careful, the leak on mine has caused a couple of small paint bubbles on the grey plastics where I had my steering locked and the reservoir was over the right side. Going to get the dealer to look...

Always bag your helmet or put it out of reach of anything that crawls or swarms. I took a nap at a rest stop with my helmet sitting on a picnic table and rode the next 10 days with ants crawling...

135 Mph indicated.

I got it to 135 indicated on the speedo, probably could have gone slightly faster dropping the windshield low and tucking in a bit for aerodynamics. It probably would have gone a little faster but...

I really like the size and functionality. I'd agree with Mouth as well in that they are a little sharp on the edges. If the front edges could be blunted, possibly with tubing as corners to round them...

After a few break in miles

No Farkles other than some mud and the small GS tankbag. Luggage setup will remain as is with the tankbag and cheap Walmart dry bag. Ready for world travel!
