Is that the small or large GS tank bag? Also thought you were getting the Akro?
It's the small tank bag; Akro is on back order and will be fitted on first service

Nope, standard seat on the low setting. I'll move it up once I get used to the bike!

Actually it is one case where I can forgive breaking Netiquette.

CONGRATULATIONS for the new bike Rich!
Looks great! Everybody seems to be getting the gray one.

How does it feel? Does it pull... to the left as they said?
The wheel on the handle bar controls only GPS or other stuff too? (I think I've seen someone changing riding more with the wheel)
Where there other LC GSes waiting there?
Any chance to test the LEDs?

Doesn't pull to the left. I didn't get a chance to test the wheel, I was having too much fun One other LC going out today I think. And will get to test the LED's very soon

Sounds like they are getting closer to San Diego....I think I'll call my guy at the dealership to bug him just a little more. Is anyone else here also waiting for his or her LC GS? The two people who have posted pix are both gray with alloy wheels. I ordered the gray as well but with spokes. Those alloy wheels look awesome though......having second thoughts about my choice.

Yeah, it is the first time I can actually picture a GS with non-spoke wheels.

The handle bar wheel only controls the GPS functions, You may have seen it being used on a K16 where it controls the ESA amongst many other things,but not engine modes.
