After a few thousand km of sand, ruts and washboard in Mongolia I was wishing I had one on the GS! I'm waiting to see what the price is on the Scotts then decide between it and the RallieMoto.
For what it's worth, hours of forum trawling has led me to conclude the RalleMoto is the way to go. Proven, reliable, reasonably-priced (in a big-picture way).

You'd think the fact that they're made in Gosford, half an hour from my house, might tip my hand - but no, it's cheaper to buy one from the USA and re-import it than to buy from the manufacturer here!
