It looks like a off-road version of the Uni-Go. I've seen the Uni-Go behind a GS before. I used to have one for my FJR. It was one amazing trailer but not able to be taken on anything but highway.

Looks outstanding. You lucked out since my riding buddy bought a new LED tail section for his Ducati 996 and you can barely see it. Does yours look as bright as the tail lights on the 2008 models?
