well, you know how it is...an unhappy customer is 1000 times more likely to tell people about it than a happy customer is...always have to take those reviews with a grain of salt

Looking at 2007 R1200GS's right now.
How about a 2007 GSA?

I'm sure I will have questions along the way. Thanks!

As far as replacing the rear tire often... that's why I drive 30+ year old cars that cost about 1/13 the price of this bike.

I digress....

The boxes are damn nice for the under $30 I spent on them. Quad latches, decent hinges, nice gasket, and the damn things are fully foam lined. Pretty good deal if you ask me. I even managed to drop one from about 3' onto my concrete garage floor and it did not crack. It hit on the corner and i was expecting the worst after it was sitting in sub 10 degree weather all day, but it came away with nary a scratch. Looking forward to building some mounting brackets for the Killer.....
I dropped the klr on one already (kickstand in the mud) seems to be ok.

Yeah, it's a beast to move around with a full tank.

Gorman's bike is the Exxon Valdez though, pretty sure he's got me beat by a gallon or two.

Never been, how was it?

I ended up going out for a round of deicing parking lots at 11. Just got back in.
