One thing I don't like - After I bought the bike, I found out that the accessory port will not work with my heated gear or my battery tender. I need to figure out how to install a dedicated accessory outlet connected straight to the battery.

I also need some crash bars. I am not sure which style to get.

It is a 2011 model that had been a demo/daily rider for a dealership GM.

This sticker is on the swingarm.... Anyone know what company or product this sticker is from?

It's an '09 GSA outfitted with regular GS seat and fairing plus some custom parts and paint. Actually it's not mine -- but it's for sale and I want it!!

That is a nice ride around the loop in the Davis Mountains.
How bad was the fire damage from last summer on the other end of the loop?
