While one part of me want to say the "I'm jealous, you bastard, you suck" kind of comments....I will take the high road and just say WOW. Nicely done.

You are a fortunate man to be able to afford not only the new GSA, but also all of those upgrades. Nice...PS, is your company hiring?

Well as a wise man once told me; Just because I did it doesnt really mean I can afford it! I'll just be eating Top Ramen for a few years!

Seat

How did the Sargent seat compare to the stock one for you....how did it change your distance to the ground? What about comfort?

Thanks...

I really like the Sargent Seat, had one on my last one as well and for me is a lot more comfortable. With that said it is very firm until you break it in and feels almost hard for a few thousand miles. My last one broke in at about 1500 miles and was perfect.

They say the height is about the same as the stock one but to me it feels lower, I am 6'4" and run both front and back of the seat in the high position. The passenger seat is night and day different from the stock one, my wife loves it.

Nice

Lot$ of big dollar mod$... One of the cheapest and best mods (IMO) I did on the 07 GSA, was HID headlights and LED flashing tails. (I think the newer bikes have LED rears and driving/fogs(?)

You are right, I just verified and it came with the GPR Steering Damper.

Sh!t that's twice this year I have been wrong.

I have the HID's on my Kawasaki and definitely worth the cost. Definitely needed on this bike.
