I'm sorry if I'm hijacking this thread a little, but how about those brake rotors? Are they the Twalcom ones? This was your solution for all that f*&*īng noise from the stock brakes? How do the new ones work?

The rotors are Galfers. I had Woody make me a second set of wheels so I use the 19 front (with Galfers) and 17 rear (with stock rotor) for street; and my 21 front (with stock rotor) and 18 rear (with Galfer) for the dirt. Like Motorfiets I got tired of smoking through knobbies when I wasnt riding dirt.
I never really had significant problems with the stock rotors, but the twin Galfers on the 19 are indeed sweet and they work extremely well.
I like the road setup enough that for the first time I'm thinking about trips that dont involve dirt. This of coarse might be a bad thing, because we all know that if you only ride pavement on your GS then you have to give up your man card.
