Thanks - Great info
The winter mods may include this. I have a lot of sand in my area and some day may slap a paddle on her so it may be a good investment. I don't plan to swap out the bike anytime soon and would like to do some longer distance riding, like the Continental divide. Sounds like it can hurt. The GS does most of distance stuff now but the capability of the 530 is in the back of my mind when hairy stuff pops up. Thanks folks!
