So I wanted to start a thread where people that are enjoying their rides and tinkering have the encouragement to let us know. That way, hopefully those that visit ADVRider can get a more accurate picture of what a joy owning these bikes really is. Not to be naive, I am aware that I may be proven wrong. I may end up in the minority as a rider enjoying GS ownership (knock on wood, **bangs head**).
