I am old school. I ride without all those electrical devices on. I actually look around at scenery and keep my mind on the road. Has worked well for over 35 years. What a concept.

That is what scares me with the new K1600GTL...It has so much electronic gadgetry that it creates an extra sensory overload with all monitors a displays...kinda takes away from the wind in my hair and savoring the world as she comes along

Yeah, I've had the same thought, but you don't have to play with the system while you are moving.

L vs R , night and day , However the L does have a button.

Desmogged , desnorkeled , air filter , the usual stuff ,

The seat instead of a 2x4 like your ATK , this is more like a peice of plywood .

2k now thats cheap fun.

Perfect head? Can you possibly mean that peach basket you are wearing on your shoulders?
