I have about a 500 trip home after they are installed. I'll do a report on them when I get home.

Getting Ready For Trip March 1st to ???? US

I have been getting my 03 GSA ready for a trip with 2 other friends starting March 1st..heading to St George by trailer & heading out for 2 weeks of riding...Death Valley among them a lot depends on weather.

Adapted a cheap mini tripod to mount the GoPro on the Ztechnik windshield support....



This image shows the push button remote control for the GoPro on the left clutch control. You can also see the Sena SM10 which feeds audio from the Montana & Ipod to my NEW SMH10R headset that was given to me from SENA for testing the audio cable for the K1200LT system to SM10.

Yes, off a 2012 with 6700 miles... The stock shocks are sprung for skinny folks, which I am not. The springs they are putting on are set up for my weight and riding style.
