    So I finally decided it was time to post a pic of my new-to-me '05. Had the good fortune of purchasing the bike from another inmate last spring and have been enjoying it ever since. This photo was taken on the night I brought her home. Hopefully I can get the picture to link correctly. Here goes...

    That shield looks interesting - is that the CeeBailey's? Thoughts?

    Thanks,

    I am always amazed how they really haven't changed that much since 2005. Good looking bike. Put lots of miles on it. :clap

    It only looks big because of the tree lined up behind it. It's like the regular screen, just tinted. OEM BMW part.

    Thanks Jick!

    Put about 3k miles on it last season with the hopes of during much more riding this year. The better half and I have been talking about weekend rides and camping adventures. I think it's going to be a great riding season! :thumb

    Took the GSA out for a ride and found a new beach, be a shame not to get a little mud on the tires...

    I guess you have taken enough pics of me in these leathers to spot me a mile off! haha


    Will have the GSA out at EC one day soon for a few laps!

    Jim - How would you rate them (fit/finish/build quality etc...) compared to the Jesse's?

    Fit/finish and build quality are 90%+ of the Jesse's. The only slight issue I have is that the powder coat seems a tad fragile comparred to the Jesse bags, and Kirk outsourced that, so not his fault at all.

    The material is exactly the same. Kirk does not grind the welds, but I prefer that because it adds strength. The design is great (though the design is basically mine with some necessary engineering from Kirk to make it work right).

    Overall, a great set of bags at a VERY reasonable price!:clap
