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?

It did come with the bike, and is a BMW item. The number on it does not look like a normal BMW part number, but here it is: SN 7 698 057

According to a buddy of mine who also rides a GSA, this windscreen is very similar in size and shape.... just tinted. I like the look of it a lot. If that part number doesn't work for you and you have trouble ordering one, PM me and I'll call up the dealer who installed it and get the info.

Another farkle worth mentioning that came with the bike are the little square LED "take down" lights, made by Code 3. I have seen them on several dealership websites for sale. They are expensive (about $500), but man do they light the world up. The websites state they are for off road use only, but I like having them for empty backroad stretches. The round Adv lights were given a new switch, velcroed up by the gauges, since they can be left on all the time, and the take down lights were wired to the switch above the left grip, allowing for quick on/off switching.

Hey, I'm new. Here is a picture of me on my new (to me) 2009 GS. I'm loving it so far and can't wait to do more of what you see me doing in this picture!
