I have Fiamms on my old R100RS and had them on my GSA as well. Don't know how they'd hold up offroad, but they're loud. Aerostitch carries them.

Race tank, no seat. Was gonna put a long ride kit on it when I first got it but changed my mind. This tank holds plenty and I can always carry a fuel bottle if I need insurance.
