I guess there is an intentional promotion of the self, calling something grey as silver.
On the other side, white is white even if dirt.

Hey guys, just thought I'd put the word out--you know those concrete guard pillars they put around gas pumps? Well I smacked one really well with the front right side of my gas tank, leaving a tennis ball-sized dent.

If you run across an ADV tank for sale, please pass it on. I'd be much obliged. Thanks.

^^^ Indeed looks new. Nice.

Mine has 100,000 miles (160,000km) and was well maintained by previous owners. I spent winter going over the bike. Spring is coming.



In regard of GSA fuel tanks, they are not easy to get. Haven't seen one in North America for the past 3 months. They do come up for sale on UK ebay though. But people won't ship.

Well, then good luck for those who dig that. Not everyone does.

I do fancy the new 1200 LC (GSA) and it will be delivered to me in week 14.
But this edition of the 1150 is also very nice. I bought for my collection.
