It is for my Saturn Sky. The factory windshield is getting hard to find, so I bought one when I could.

It is an Emgo top case. It comes with a base and is pretty nice for under $100. It fits my Scorpion XO900 easily.

Gave my stainless steel headers a top up buffing. Still looking as new despite having done 108,000km. This time I did them with the pipes still on the bike..

If you don't mind me asking who makes your top box and what are those two brackets protruding off the back?
Enjoy the badlands (jealous)!

Looks like bicycle water bottle holders - I have seen these used in the past for holding spare fuel as well (in aluminum MSR bottles).

Used mine to jump start an old couple's car who were stranded at a local market. Man, was the old guy ever surprised!

Jesse top case (side bags not on today) and yes they're Topeak bottle cages that hold MSR fuel bottles. I keep premium fuel in one, quick fire start when allowed or stranded rider, and the other I keep oil.

The Topeak cages are expandable and will take the MSR fuel bottles.

I took my GS apart and thoroughly cleaned and waxed it. It's amazing how the dirt and grime protected the paint.

I clean mine once a year (in the winter when there's four feet of snow outside), but have never gotten mine that nice! What do you use?

This weekend I:

- Replaced the silver valve covers with dark grey ones from a Rockster. (Still not blue but they're better than silver)
- Replaced the broken center stand bracket.
- Oil change.
- Transmission oil change.
- Installed TT headlight guard.
- New clutch reservoir cover (old one was gunked up from getting brake fluid on it)
- Cleaned the engine from the old gunk and oil and road grime.

New valve covers:



The bike as she sits today (sorry for the crappy quality picture):

Your adventure came with silver valve covers? I thought that the darker wheels and valve covers was one of the "features" of the GSAs. Both my 04 and 06 1150 came with them.

Gave mine a valve adjustment, TB sync, fluids. Purrs like a kitten now. I really wanted to do the rocker endplay as well, but ran out of time. That is sometimes a can of worms, as you can end up chasing that spec for a long time...
