    Who would use FALCO for their avatar? Whoever that would be, surely wouldn't suck.

    a mans bike. the black engined non abs GS is to motorcycling what Brett Favre is to quarterbacks. tough nosed and no bullshit, not afraid of anything. I'm jealous of all the perks you got, the financing, the 5 first payments, the Edelweiss Tour, and on top of that they give you a coupon for $750 clams for apparel. So much for meely mouth sales people telling you the dealers make 80 dollars on a 15 thousand dollar bike. You got over big time, and you suck. If your going to run panniers they have to be the ones you're running with those tie loops on the lids, even though you're to lazy to use them. Aerostitch tank panniers always make a GS look even more like a GS, and yours is no exception, I can't count the times I've wondered why more people don't use them. I like the GPS mount, and for some reason I like the Parabellum on your bike, though in all fairness, for asthetics you caught it at just the right angle with this shot. I'd like to see the Adventure beak color matched with the bike, but with the black engine it works well enough, at least you have one, every 1150 should. All in all a very respectable 1150GS.

    Too bad you hosed it up with K12 mirrors you jerk. You probably put ketchup on a TBone steak and drink Guiness out of the can.

    People like you should have a backround check before they let you ride home on a new GS.

    Your bike sucks and I'm not offering a recount.

    Next.

    I got them from advrider "dank", they're called toast muffs or hippohands. Here's the thread where I learned about them:

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56595

    They're a really nice product. I put them on in the rain, or if the temperature drops down below 40F. With the toast muffs + heated grips, I can wear my summer gloves year round and keep my hands warm and dry, regardless of the ambient temperature or precipitation. IMO, they're a much better solution than electric gloves or big thick "winter" gloves.

    The only time I find them akward is when manipulating the bike while OFF of the bike. Say, taking the bike off its sidestand while on an incline and/or on gravel, standing beside the bike, etc. Sometimes the extreme angles my wrists make while doing such a procedure can cause the toast-muffs to honk the horn. Other than that minor problem, they're great.

    Perhaps the thing that really makes a GS suck... is when it is a "project" and you can not ride it... yet have a three-day off road scheduled the next day! (LA-B to V) and if that was not SUCK, then do a clutch job TWICE because the pressure plate had been inverted! Oh SUCK, SUCK so SUCKS! :cry

    God!!! Lift my hat to your mechanical skills!!!
    Since you have the same hard parts and the same crash bars as I have... a question... Are you able to remove the front plate to change the belt without removing the crash bar? I personally cannot... and since the rear two bolts that hold the crash bar are the engine mount bolts I am never crazy about doing it! I have a maintenance free belt... was able to take a peek


    [​IMG]




    at it... and it looks good... but with 50K on that belt I feel like I should change it now since I can use a jack to hold the engine up instead of a rock when I am on the road for my yearly 6 months!
    I appreciate the input...
    Thanks... and be well...
