    It's Beefeater Steve.

    And no, not really. I've been watching / reading this thread for months now, thinking of some way to get this new GS. Begging, borrowing, stealing--nothing has been ruled out.

    I make decent money, have 5 kids, no debt, and am looking for a new(er) bike. With anything I buy, I have two rules:

    1. Only if I can pay cash money for it.
    2. Value is one of three "keys" to buying anything.

    Yes, I can pay cash for the new bike, but doing so would crap all over #2 because I don't mind a gently used bike if I can avoid the depreciation.




    All of this is a long way to say: I'm getting a 2010 GSA because I love it and the value is good--therefore, I have no reason to keep obsessing over the new bike (or this thread).

    Sorry I ruffled feathers, fellas. Ride safely.

    B.S.

    OK I get it. You could give me any tire by the way, I only ride when the roads are dry.

    On the dutch forum I read about a second canadian recall. This one concerns ASC. No more details so far.
    Over here it will probably just be called an update.

    Too bad. You are missing a good part of pure motorcycling. :)
    (esp. when you realize you can ride almost the same when others can't)

    I ride even in snow (within reason). I don't do seasonal riding.

    Very sexy.

    If you're seeing it in person, can you tell me if there's a good place I can mount my flesh light? That's how much I love the new bike.

    The akra looks awesome, and probably sounds epic, but its over £800 in the uk:huh

    Indeed, it is on the expensive side. For the regular akra the price is not yet known. See and hear before deciding.

    It is a bit cheaper, but not sure on the lloks just yet, but a carbon(look) hexacone is a possibility.

    Sucks that there will be no Premium plus models at launch for the US bikes (or at least it is unlikely). I guess I will be waiting until April/May when the first non-launch shipments come in.
