We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

That's cool with the front hitch carrier. But have you tried that towing or with a bigger bike? I have read that the diesel 7.3 and 6.0 will both overheat (engine and trans) with a bike on the front. But not sure if that's just internet BS or not. I seem to remember a picture from Ned with a trailer & bike on the front.

Yes, I know Ned carried his 950 Super Enduro on front while pulling a 22 foot trailer over Vail pass, etc., and he didn't have any problems. Maybe in a hot climate it would be a problem, but I don't know. I probably won't load anything larger than my wife's WR on front.

Coincidentally, I'm considering this fropnt setup to carry my KTM on a little roadtrip to NH I'm doing this summer (the Triumph will go on the back, and I need all my woodworking/renovation tools, and I need a place to sleep).. I don't know about the 6.0, but I've never seen my temp gauge move, even when climbing and towing and carrying a ton of crap, so I'm not too concerned with blocking a little wind.

Temp gauge on the dash is useless, use some OBDII tool to get the real trans/water&oil temp, then you will see a huge movement just pulling up a grade unloaded. My water and oil will read the same on the dash but will go from 190 to 225 in real temp just going up a long hill.
At 225 I would expect the dash gauge to be close to red, but it's slap bang in the middle.

Damn you people! I've been following this thread since the beginning, and you guys made me bring this home a couple of months ago:



Unfortunately, the reality of spare time (or lack of) has set in - it's in the flea market.
