    The thing I like about the GS cockpit is that you are looking up at the blue sky and clouds going by above your head in the reflection of the tach and spedo.

    The windscreen, exposed lighting hardware and the view through the mounting brackets give the GS a quality similar to a B-29 cockpit.

    Welcome Trippelke.

    Take a look at this for baggage. I recommend it highly.

    Not sure what the implied "intended effect" is either, but that photo does have a touch of class. Very nice visual blend of the white. I never did like the way the Varios seem to "unbalance" the bike.

    +1 on more photos

    Let me help. Just to the left is a black and white car, typically driven by police officers. It is shocking how the brakes are applied and the red sea parts when the idiot CA drivers see it. The same goes for the police motorcycles.

    Mystery solved.:ricky:ricky

    Thanks. They are Touratech Zegas. I had them powder coated mostly to keep the black stuff off of my clothes, but with the added benefit of looking cool.

    fellas, i've been lurking this thread for a while now, and its mos def helped me to conclude that a gs800 is the bike for me. its sold me wife as well, which is awesome. the climate of this thread seems quite noob question friendly, so i'll throw this out there...
    i've looked at other threads on the subject of this bike, and theres lots of reviews. the thing is that there's 2 gs800s' in my local shop, but they don't have anti lock brakes. but they do have 3.9% financing. whereas the 2010s' have 6% financing, and whatever else i want to add on the bike.
    the financing really isn't much of a big deal, but i am wondering if i should wait to have the anti lock option. is it a must have? i assume the bashguards and the panniers, onboard computer, are must haves.... but thoughts overall? a PM would be great if yall feel its a thread jacking.

    My opinion on this is:

    Anti-lock brakes compensate for when you fail to brake perfectly in an emergency.

    I'd recommend getting one with ABS.

    +1 on ABS.

    Panniers are very expensive, and there are other options for luggage, so I wouldn't consider them must haves.

    I specifically ordered one without ABS. Didn't want it, never had it, and I don't miss it.
