I'm gunna go for it, I've E mailed Woodys and I'm guna go with an 18/21 combo, plus a susspension upgade, can't wait!
I almost went Orange (990) until I convinced myself to go with the upgrade.
Those pics of your bike look great, so many people buy a Gs or a GSA and don't get them dirty, the Mid Life Crisis mob.

A recent trip up north of Western Australia made me want the 21 inch front wheel. take a look!

Wow I'm jealous!!! that looks like an awesome trip. I like those samurai's I used to have one for rock crawling. I prolly should of gotten the 18" rear too. Let me know how you like it. The 990's are nice too but there is nothing like having a nice air cooled boxer and with the 21" front and suspension mod you can do just as much off road if not more with the GS plus still being way better on road. I wish BMW would have a 21" option from the factory. Then it would be a true predecessor of the R80GS. I agree though not enough people like to get there GS dirty just like to so many of the land rovers nowadays. Here is a few pics of me just messing around at my local spot.
