Your GS should have come with 2 metal keys, a plastic key and a key code tag (at least I think that's what it is) so you can have replacement keys made.

My plastic and spare metal keys are sitting...

I have a silly question for you Reaver. The production date of my bike is 12.01.2009. Does this mean my bike was built the 12 of January, 2009 or December 1, 2009? Since I bought it in Jan 2010,...

So if you haven't given up yet on this thread you might want to consider an AirHawk seat. It should keep your butt from hurting too bad for the long ride home. :D

My 2009 12GS has a 5.3 gal tank but, like others have stated, there is a "reserve" of 1.1 gal or so. All this means is the bike will tell you your out of gas when you have about 1.1 gal left.
