Agree.
However, everybody does it nowadays, so at least luggage manufacturers should take this standardization into account and manufacture more useful luggage.

Bit of work today, largely cosmetic. Plasticoated the stock screen, and mounted a headlight mask from a grey std. headlight mesh. Going for the blackout front. Not a fan of white. Almost there.

Here's the rest of that busted out old train station or mill or whatever the heck it was.


It's kind of absurd to think that between these two bikes, there are 4 cylinders, 2.4 liters of displacement and 300hp.


I like this side-by-side. Shows a big difference in the front-end height of the bikes.

Been there, done that.
Standard tyres suck on muddy roads, front wheel indeed clipped away.

Looking at the performance of the stock tires on muddy trail, anyone care to recommend a good all-rounder tires for the std version (non-R), i.e. for mud, gravels and road.

From some other threads in this forum, seems like Conti TKC80 may be a good candidate. Any advice?

Don't know about the 1190, but on the GSA the TKC has been a great tire. The rears do however wear out very fast if you are doing a lot of pavement riding.
