It's Beefeater Steve.

And no, not really. I've been watching / reading this thread for months now, thinking of some way to get this new GS. Begging, borrowing, stealing--nothing has been ruled out.

I make decent money, have 5 kids, no debt, and am looking for a new(er) bike. With anything I buy, I have two rules:

1. Only if I can pay cash money for it.
2. Value is one of three "keys" to buying anything.

Yes, I can pay cash for the new bike, but doing so would crap all over #2 because I don't mind a gently used bike if I can avoid the depreciation.




All of this is a long way to say: I'm getting a 2010 GSA because I love it and the value is good--therefore, I have no reason to keep obsessing over the new bike (or this thread).

Sorry I ruffled feathers, fellas. Ride safely.

B.S.

Which tire causes the least head shake? Oops, I said it.

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.
