Untill fracturing my wrist on Friday on the BC Trail ride up here in Canada..I was also headed to the GS Challenge on my 2010 hotrodded GSA.
Anyone will agree my GSA is a rocket ship.
I will not go into the performance mods but will suggest a slipper clutch....if anyone making a comment to your request knows what hard riding can do to these motors this is one of the first lines of defense.
Same thing with skid plates...if your is mounted to your motor and not to your frame like the Black Dog CW units ...you are missing the issue.
Every bracket/guard you can mount wont hurt.
Side bags on your crash bars will save you $$...fill them up.
Pivot Pegz MkIII....steering with the pegs will be a must.
Just few of the functional mods you will need to help navigate the rough stuff.
