And please stop posting pictures with the akra (lead us not into temptation ). I told myself I shouldn't get one, I don't need it and it's expensive.
I was the same so I compromised & got a carbon Leo Vince via eBay A$576 from Italy delivered to my door in about 2 weeks. Smaller & lighter than the Akrapovic. Sound not quite as good but with the baffle removed still a sweet sound.

Question for owners of the new bike. Is there much difference in throttle response between Dynamic and Road mode?

In my experience, there most definitely is a difference. The dynamic mode sort of wakes up the hidden sportsbike inside. :-)

I'm looking forward to a rip on both the GSA and the RT. The RT will probably be more "me" of the 2 though..

Possibly going with a '14 LC very soon. Those that have and went with Varios, how much did the dealer charge for the panniers? And how much for the trunk set up?

Wondering what list is supposed to be and then did the dealer give any sort of deal?

Thanks in advance!

My panniers were free.

My Dealer told me that hold-up is in customs due to the heavy influx of not only our GS's, but they are beginning to ship RT's. He said that this is causing the bottleneck in Customs.

They use a numbering system that goes up to 195 designating at what stage the motorcycle is in the entire process of production and shipment. He said now everyone is in a black hole with Customs.

Non ESA GSW

I have a dumb question...does a 2014 non ESA GSW have the manual preload adjustment on the rear similar to my 2005?

I have yet to see one w/o ESA on the dealer floor and when I order mine I am going to order w/o ESA.

Thanks in advance!

I had all three Vario's installed on my GSW when I took delivery, I paid $1495 for the whole shooting match, topcase mount included.

Yep, they have manual Spring Pre-load and Damping adjustments just like the old style GS.

Yes.

Still do NOT order w/o ESA. I am not going to argue on this because it is discussed thoroughly in this thread (search). It really transforms the bike. It's not the ESA you knew.
