I am currently selling my motorbike and car so that i can make the transition to purchase a GSA.. I am VERY excited about it and feel that it is the right thing for me to do to get to experience more freedom of riding..

Some of the things i was hoping to be clear on prior to making a purchase..

1) What should i expect to pay for what year ( i would like LOW mileage)

With a new bike costing $20k, I was thinking that $17k would be a good budget for a 10' seeing as their are very limited amounts of used GSA's on the market, I imagine my best bet would be to purchase an ADV Premium and factor in a budget for add on's such as..

2) What budget should i factor in for getting the gear necessary so that i will be happy to just ride the bike after purchasing

Full Akrapovic Exhaust (twin) $1600 (labor cost? $140?)
Adventure Jacket/ Pants/Boots and Gloves (what gear do you ride with Socal year?)
Top box (hopefully will be coming with but just in case $500?!?!)
Michelin 2CT's
Windshield Extension
Aux Lights ? (Vision Solstice)
Insurance 1 year ($1500)
Any add ons you would reccomend as MUSTS?

A bit all over the place but hopefully it will come together the closer i get...

Look forward to hearing from you...

Regards, LukeinLA
