They're worth having just for the lunch box in the tank. Best bit about the bike.

I take it you have the poor mans standard machine

Yes, I have the poor man's version, bought new in Mar 1991. I think if you look at my current garage inventory, you could surmise I have the ability to have either or both. In fact I did have both at the same time,,,,I just found the standard GS, back to back, handles better on the street, and especially!!!! off road.
