Clearwater Lights

Just installed my Darla's on my 2014 GSW with Can Opener. Fantastic as others have mentioned above. Great look and light output. Expensive, yes. Worth it, absolutely!

Painted Panels GSW

As much as I love my new GSW, I did not like the "all gray, all the time" look of the fuel tank covers, especially on my white GS. So I talked to my local paint guy (also a rider on an HD Ultra) and...

Rear seat

Jet, I leave the rear seat on, and occasionally mount a Chicane tail bag over it. Seat weighs nothing (almost) and provides a bit of a butt rest for the long slab rides we have down here.
