Might I recommend..

Hey 12ozPoint, that bike is in beautiful shape!

If I may recommend something: http://www.advdesigns.com/r1gsaenguex.html

Those engine guards are extremely strong, and will keep the slick aluminum covers looking good if you happen to set the bike down (like I did with my new GSA at the Wisconsin Dual Sport Riders event a couple of weeks ago.) Wasn't even moving.....the bike just dropped into tall grass, and the aluminum guard is all mashed up and the valve cover started leaking.

I just installed those engine guards by Adventure Designs. Takes less than an hour, and will save a bunch of money in the long run.
