I've heard reports from all sides, from no heat to real hotline mine. Maybe it's just my GS.

GS LC heat issue

I really don't feel that much heat from the seat area (I run a Russell saddle) but the posters who've agreed with my OP echo my misgivings. I'm a fan of Aeroflow and have their products currently,...

I could tell that you were putting me on. This is GS/RT #9 but is LC #1. Jugs I'm used to (and like all kinds!) but radiators are something else. It's not a deal breaker, for sure

+++++ for Wilburs.

It'll cost you $2000 plus labor for your ESA GS (or at least it did for my GS LC) and the results are superb.

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.

Let's make a list.
