This is the second bike I bought from them and they've done me right each time.

I was somewhat concerned about the seat height (I have a thread around somewhere on this), but at 5'11 (with boots) I have absolutely no trouble handling this bike. After the first few hundred miles the bike is every bit as good as I heard. In fact, even moreso because the stock seat and fairing have been just fine; no plans to swap them out.

In the spring I'm hoping to do an Appalachian tour topped off with some Virginia Civil War sites.

Looks awesome with the ADV bags on it..

Just came back from GS Trophy qualifying round. I´ll have to try harder next time! That was a 2,000 km round trip (that I took on my GSA, of course). So today my bike gets a good wash and I´ll install a Denali 1 LED lights set that I took from my 1150. Pictures to follow.

I recently installed the Alt Rider Skid plate (Black).....nice and the BoosterPlug. Seems smother at slower speeds. Oh and I've been playing with the website www.picmonkey.com. Heard about it from a fellow inmate who did this awesome post to Alaska on his KTM, along with his wife riding pillion. Thanks again sir ! His name escapes me at the moment. This pic was done before my Alt Rider skid plate install

Hope you had a good time at the qualifying round. I too will have to try harder next time, but now I have some idea of what to expect. I thought I had a good appreciation for what was involved, but it was a little different than I expected. It was still a great experience and best of all, I met a lot of great people.

Purchased this tinted windscreen off of the flea market here. The photo is of the seller's bike... The soon to be mine 2012 R12GS Adventure Triple Black looks just like this... It's gonna look awesome!



BTW, I'm not even taking delivery of the bike until early January 2013... I hate waiting!

If I have the original handguards would this Toura air dams fit?

Hey
which radiator guard do you have? I haven't seen that one and looks really interseting!
