OK I get it. You could give me any tire by the way, I only ride when the roads are dry.

No other GS news, arriving at dealers, more recalls?
On the dutch forum I read about a second canadian recall. This one concerns ASC. No more details so far.
Over here it will probably just be called an update.

Too bad. You are missing a good part of pure motorcycling. :)
(esp. when you realize you can ride almost the same when others can't)

I ride even in snow (within reason). I don't do seasonal riding.

Very sexy.

If you're seeing it in person, can you tell me if there's a good place I can mount my flesh light? That's how much I love the new bike.

The akra looks awesome, and probably sounds epic, but its over 800 in the uk

Indeed, it is on the expensive side. For the regular akra the price is not yet known. See and hear before deciding.

It is a bit cheaper, but not sure on the lloks just yet, but a carbon(look) hexacone is a possibility.

Sucks that there will be no Premium plus models at launch for the US bikes (or at least it is unlikely). I guess I will be waiting until April/May when the first non-launch shipments come in.
