Gsa

I have a 2012 GS in London, UK, and a 2014 GSA. For me, the big factor was the range of the GSA. 525 KM on a tank is cool. The GSA does not feel appreciably heavier or higher. I replaced the seat...

Thanks for the input. I have Scouts on my 2012 and like them. A guy I know has suggested Karoo's on the front and Scouts on the back (when correct size is available). Any opinions?

Jesse

I put on a set on my 2014 GSA two months ago, and am very pleased with them. Installation instructions were not great, and they needed to ship the side bars to fit on to the foot Pegs afterwards. ...

Skid Plate

Hey Jim

For relatively tame off road riding on the GSALC, what skid plate would you recommend? The BD seems overkill.

I have Scouts on my 2012 GS and love them. I am waiting for the new size for my GSALC next month.
