    I added a Mosko Moto "Hood" tankbag to my GS, and it's perfect. I changed up the mounting a bit, cutting the front strap and tying off to the beak frame on each side. It was great on recent ride up to Yosemite, never once in the way and easy enough to flip out of the way to refuel.

    Today it was time to put on some new shoes. Thought I'd take JVB's advice and tried the Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2s.
    Best part is that I got to try out my new garage ornament!

    This thing is awesome but, like many things in life, requires lots of lube and lots of practice :jack
    Very happy overall.

    I got the same DW changer a month ago. Have only changed six tires so far, but that is enough to know it is the bee's knees.

    I dont think the weaver changer will work for the GSA spoke wheels. Maybe there is an adapter.

    Did you need to relocate any cables with your 40MM riser install?

    I keep forgetting to post this up and so now this is about 3 weeks ago but took a trip with a few guys and stayed at the Diamondback Lodge at The Switzerland Inn, in Little Switzerland, NC. 3, nearly 300 mile days back to back. Premier interest to me was getting to ride the Back of the Dragon.

    Being an EVO-engage user for the last 5 years, I have been looking to update my bag on my 19 GSA. When will the PRO series be available stateside? Also +1 on what cug said about the storage pockets for ear plugs, pens, tire gauges, chap stick, chin curtains, etc...

    Heather and I took a ride down a new road today. It's passable 2-up but she had to get off a couple of times and let me rooster / fish tail my way through some mud holes but we could have done it the 2 of us. We walked most of the parcel and there's a LOT of work to do. I have an email out to the town to see what the options are for development. Either way and no matter what, this is a new road that I'll be going down at least once a week. Fun and quick ride through and a decent work out on a GSA.

    (EDIT: I stole this from the NH/VT Riders thread where I found a 14 acre parcel of land on a Class VI road for $20,000. Thinking of buying it and turning it into a super rustic motorcycle campground. Heather is in support of it. It's 5 minutes off the NEBDR and if you can do the NEBDR, you can absolutely get down here BUT it won't support anything but bikes so only bikes (sub-1000 pounds) can get down here.

    Thank You sir, I think the cables need to be re-routed when using 2'' Rox Risers. I ordered the MS MOTECH 40MM risers so I'm glad I don't need to undo the stanchion.

    One thing I did after installing them:. Raised my seat to the high position. This got my shoulder angle to the bars back to where I like it (doesn't feel like ape hangers) and then adjusted the suspension a bit so I can reach the ground.

    Except for the Packers vandalism, I have extreme garage man cave envy.
