My dream is to somehow retire at 50 and deliver pizza on a bike. Looks like the GS would be a good candidate.

Moved to GSpot boxers..

That top case needs to be supported, hence the threaded holes above the tail light. If you load it up, the plastic rack will eventually crack..

C'mon

The guy is looking for the obligatory (guy code Rule #62) affirmation of the new purchase and pizza delivery jokes and top box mounting tips are all you guys got?!

As a recent purchaser myself, I for one, am stcking to the code.

Sweet ride Snips!
