    By the way, are there any good mounting options for lights on a regular GS, that don't require the upper crash bars? Somewhere near the indicators would be good I reckon.

    That was a case of me needing to google before I asked I think ;) Thanks for the links! I am creeping ever closer to placing an order for the Rallye... only concern is the cost, and the thought of taking what in Norway is a $34k bike off road... but I am good at ignoring such issues! No point with money if you don't spend it ;)

    I did seriously consider OEM farkles for my GS, but ended up not getting a single OEM accessory. You can get more quality for less money on the aftermarket.

    That SW-Motech mount looks great, just what I am looking for! Man the amount of farkles available for the GS is great... reason enough to get one really ;) Now that mount, a set of rigid industries dually side shooter lights with blue covers and the hex ezcan with strobing function should get me noticed fairly quickly...!

    I just installed the HexEzcan with the Sideshooters and they do dim. Although, I plan on leaving them on at 100% and the strobe functions still work just fine. I have the amber covers on mine to keep me outta trouble :-)

    Cool, thanks for the feedback kuyaed33! Getting ready to pull the trigger on the Rallye next week, the after market support for the GS is a major upside :)

    Someone else posted about the SW Motech lightbar. I've been very happy with mine---solid as a rock. You can choose to mount the light on top, or like me, on the underside of the lightbar.

    That looks perfect, hope it still fits on the new 2017 models!

    Wow a Rallye, that's awesome, I'm jealous. Here are pictures of the Sideshooters on my bike along with the Hex EZCan.. 20170218_143725.jpg 20170218_143742.jpg
