rode almost 300mi over the holiday period, reached 600+ miles today, and performed the first service (used BMW and Guard Dog lubricant). enough can't be said as to how easy it is to work on these bikes.

True! It freed up some area in the pannier where it sat for the first 2 months.

Well it got it's first use two days later and worked very well.

Big Dave, you need to get out and enjoy that new GSA a little more! Seriously, I've enjoyed your photos and excitement about "your new best friend."

Awaiting what the payout will be. Now to the soapbox...........
What I really want is a 400lb 1000cc shaft drive V-engine GS type bike with offroad bike plastic material bodywork, but no one builds one of those. I'm tired of my 500+lb bikes getting destroyed when they hit the ground. Mainly it's the metal frames and plastic bodywork getting wasted. My DRZ400 has been crashed at least 50 times in more ways than I care to remember and never had nothing more than a broken turnsignal lens all due to the bike being light weight with flexable plastic all on a strong frame.
