    My dream is to somehow retire at 50 and deliver pizza on a bike. Looks like the GS would be a good candidate.

    Moved to GSpot boxers..

    That top case needs to be supported, hence the threaded holes above the tail light. If you load it up, the plastic rack will eventually crack..

    The guy is looking for the obligatory (guy code Rule #62) affirmation of the new purchase and pizza delivery jokes and top box mounting tips are all you guys got?!

    As a recent purchaser myself, I for one, am stcking to the code.

    Sweet ride Snips!

    (ahem.... Lose the pizza box) :rofl

    I'm really happy you're enjoying my "old" bike Nate.
    I've had a great time with it and I'm positive you will too.
    Thanks again and best to you and your buddy!!

    Man, I bet you really can RTW with that set-up. I see an Applebee's national tour in your future.

    psst, don't tell anyone, but your bike is a 1200GS. The Suzuki GS1200FTW doesn't look like that at all.
    Enjoy your new ride....
