Jim - I'm still wet behind the ears with the gs. I originally thought I might need additional lights(spots/floods) down the road and would do an over/under scenario. I didn't want the over lights to be too close to the turn signals. That was before I found the ADVmonster Model 60s. They handle it all. This one is surprisingly sturdy, but I'm with you, the straight bar would probably be best way to go.

BTW I have made a similar light bar for the 1100:
I'm going to make a bar for the R1200GS with a friend. I will post it here.
