I'm sorry you're having a problem with my description "vastly improved". It's a personal opinion, mine. I truly enjoy this bike even more than my '13. Perhaps it's new vendors or something but I...

New grips

I have always added these on my GSs. The ribbing makes the grip the right size for my hands and the spaces keep my hands from sweating. I have noticed almost no heat loss. They're a bitch to install...

Trading up with hopes of a cooler ride

Tire choices for GS LC

I've had Tourance Next and Michelin Anakees and liked the Tourances. But I'd really like to know what other 90% street tires are currently available for our bikes.
