Ahhh, makes perfect sense!
Top handle bar clamp, where from?
Awesome set up, I'm jealous.
With Woody's wheels are you still tubeless? I see stems in your tireless pics.
Nice looking bike.
Fantastic looking pig! And you got the faster model, too....RED. I like it!
How do you like the Ohlins? Are all the ESA adjustments the same as the stock suspension? on / off road, passenger/luggage/pass+lugg, sport/comf/norm ?
Edit - I sorry missunderstood. That is the stock one that came on the 2012.
Yes they are tubless, Woody's will seal them for a tubeless application if you order them that way.
The Ohlins operation is exactly the same as the stock ESA, adjustments are made through the ESA button and have all the same settings. It actually is plug and play so its all prewired to match.
The ride is 100% better on the street, I have only put 100 miles on it so far without the paassenger but it feels way more connected to the road and just overall tighter in the corners. I am about 100 pounds heavier than what they build these bikes for so having it built to my weight makes a huge difference. I wont see much off road until the snow on the mountain clears and then I'll have a better idea of the overall package.
Had you given any thought to the Adventure Designs engine guard extensions?
While one part of me want to say the "I'm jealous, you bastard, you suck" kind of comments....I will take the high road and just say WOW. Nicely done.
You are a fortunate man to be able to afford not only the new GSA, but also all of those upgrades. Nice...PS, is your company hiring?
I have looked at them, just not sure if I need them. Still pondering..................
Well as a wise man once told me; Just because I did it doesnt really mean I can afford it! I'll just be eating Top Ramen for a few years!
How did the Sargent seat compare to the stock one for you....how did it change your distance to the ground? What about comfort?
HA HA HA...you did read my sig line right
My wife hates my belief in that counsel
That is the exact same premise I operate with! LOL
I really like the Sargent Seat, had one on my last one as well and for me is a lot more comfortable. With that said it is very firm until you break it in and feels almost hard for a few thousand miles. My last one broke in at about 1500 miles and was perfect.
They say the height is about the same as the stock one but to me it feels lower, I am 6'4" and run both front and back of the seat in the high position. The passenger seat is night and day different from the stock one, my wife loves it.
I have a 2012 (same bike, same color) and the clamp is different on mine......just sayin'
Very nicely done....I might add.......
Lot$ of big dollar mod$... One of the cheapest and best mods (IMO) I did on the 07 GSA, was HID headlights and LED flashing tails. (I think the newer bikes have LED rears and driving/fogs(?)
