Funny you should say that. The bloke who bought my red GSA has one on the west coast of Oz and mine ( Ruby ) on the east coast. Saves riding through the big bit in the middle:clap.

Other than a GS.

I've sold my GSA and now I don't know what to buy. Probably a GS, not a GSW- (too ugly and...... not, to my mind, GS'y). I want to tour and scratch a little. What else is there do I get?
