Nice thread Andy ... and by the way, there is no end to the money you can spend on these bikes.


Glad to see how much you are enjoying the new ride.

The seat is very comfortable. The only thought I've had so far is the fact the cover is suede, therefore, not slippery. This may or may not be an issue when riding off road and needing to slide across the seat for some reason. I've ridden it off road a bit but did not come across an instance where sliding was required...

Also, the back seat has the D-rings on the side, which seem like a good idea - for a cruiser seat, maybe... - but on the GSA, there are plenty of tie off points on the back so these are unnecessary.

Good to hear, thanks for the feedback. I had the same thought about the D-rings on the back, great idea, on my old V-Strom. Unnecessary on a GSA.

Baby's got some new shoes... I bought a set of Heidenau K-60 Scout tires from Adventure Designs in Hayward, CA, and had them install them...

Hey there Mac-a-Dee

Let us know if those puppies are noisy when rolling - or transmit much of a humm to the handlebars please ...... they look like a nice blend of on/off

..... and there's more .....

I'd also be interested to hear how the Kruz locker is - specifically ease of use in real world situations. I used to have a throttle lock on my flr, and it was one of those things that was perfect in theoretical design, but somewhat tricky to use in the moment.


good to see you're still enjoying the life out of that scoot,

ride safe - Mr Bull

Some noise yes, but much much less than the TKC-80s they replaced...

I replaced the Kaoko throttle lock that the previous owner had installed. I never got used to how it worked. It seemed like I was always futzing with it. In the short time I've used the Kruz Locker, I'm loving how it works. The 1/4 turn on and off is so much easier to use. So far, I'm very happy with it...
