I brought her home, brand new.

You know going from an 09 GSA to the 12 GSA I figured it would be identical and i would feel right at home.... but it felt more like hopping in bed with your girlfriends identical twin sister. Everything looked the same, and yet it felt weird, all new and different.

I've got some re-farkeling and re-learning to do.

That's a great sig quote there if I ever saw one! Can I use it? Congrats!

Was the same going from my 2010 to 2012, except I got way more carried away with the Farkling this time!

An all expenses paid stay in Heidelberg, Germany at Stefan Knopfs Motorcycle Spa (warehouse in storage) while I freeze in NY and wait to return to reanimate the monster next Spring.

Installed my GXM-30 antenna to my zumo 550 and activated XM service. The big negative to this setup is that XM service does not work via bluetooth on the zumo550! I wish I new this before hand!

I have to either use a wired setup to my scala rider or buy a bluetooth dongle to attach to the zumo. Frustrating! More crap to hang on the bike.

Not sure if this is the best place to ask this question, but I'm looking for short rear turn signal stems for an 1100GS. I've been searching, but can't find any info other than a post that said Happy Trails has a kit. I searched their site, but can't find them. Does anyone have specific info on where I can buy short stems? TIA

be careful with what you get. I got a bluetooth transmitter that was I was hoping to plug into earphone outlet for the ram and then bluetooth to the scala rider, it was a no go. I have a Scala 2 and it will only connect with another scala or the GPS, it will not connect with other bluetooth devices.

Thanks for the tip!

Had a nice test drive with my wife of the new heated sargent seat and her series 6 helmet with the blue tooth set to match mine.
All three(seat, heat and headset)worked great on a chilly days ride. Not many places in Canada can take 2 hour rides on their bikes right now.
