    I like it. How did you mount the auxiliary lights?

    I built a simple mounting system from aircraft aluminum. I will include some pics later. They are designed so that I can reattach the crash guards and they -should- still fit (haven't tried yet), allowing me to have 4 aux lights instead of 2. The main reason I tucked them under the beak was to get them out of the slip stream.

    Nice job. GSA's will run like a sportbike (well, almost) when not weighted down.

    Plus, I like the minimalist look. The GS is a machine that's so ugly it's good looking! :clap

    Here's two of my current favorites. The first one was taken this past May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I just happened to be passing through on my to Canada on Community Appreciation Day - the Wednesday prior to the running of the Indy 500. Cost me $15 to run the track - I would have easily paid several times that.

    The second was taken on the salt flats in Guadalupe Mountains State Park just of Highway 62 around midway between El Paso and Carlsbad, NM.

    Found her in ABQ at Sandia BMW with 3400 miles. Added a Touratech X-low seat set and Adventure Designs Crash Bars. The original red seats are packed up for the future owner.
    I've put about 100 miles on her and loving every minute. I can't believe it's finally in my garage!
    Many thanks to all of you for a lot of great buying advice over the last couple of years!

    Very nice buy KSAT ! ! ! You "beat me to the punch", that's the bike I was looking at and and from one second to the other, the bike was gone I even started a thread about it ... Good for you, this a beautiful bike with no miles and for a great price. I got mine just a few days ago and already put around 350 miles on it and loving it ! ! !

    Congrats and welcome to the club you'll love your bike ! ! !
