    Yeah, maybe... I mean, I can sorta see how that might be an issue. But I’m not convinced.

    I gotta figure that if one is in an accident that’s gonna propel the rider forward, more than likely the rider is already on the brakes... and the laws of physics is exerting itself by also raising the rider upward. Upon impact, the rider will be not only be moving forward, but also upward... more than clearing the tank.

    I’ve often heard of frontal-impact accidents where the rider went over the handlebars & windscreen... but rarely have I ever heard of a rider going THROUGH the windscreen. Oh sure, maybe contact with the top of it, but not directly through it... especially considering the momentum of the rear of the bike is flipping up & over the front.

    Probably just more room for the keyless mechanism that side.

    Today I rode the White Rim Trail through Canyonlands National Park in Utah. It was epic and the bike did great. I’m in love with my GSA.

    It is supposed to encourage you to fuel off the bike instead of on it. No other reason.

    240 miles of 4x4 roads in vermont. It was a ton of fun. No photos as they’re on the camera.
    Edit: took a photo. Bike is clean cause we went through a huge river

    Yes sir. Riding down from WI probably the 15th. Starting from Damascus on the AM of the 17th. Might be cool for camping! Just picked up some heated gear for riding if need be. Don’t need to be almost 1000 miles from home and miserable!

    Finally got the rack n ride put together, it fits my 1150 and Scrambler and is built like a tank. The 2.5” version is beefy... I wouldn’t worry even with a 600-700 lb bike on it. I need to get the play in the hitch sorted out though.

    I rode the 'Robot Chicken' for the first time in two weeks today, putting around 160 miles in and around middle Tennessee. Then I peeled off the half-assed yellow lens tint spray job that I attempted a few weeks ago, washed off the bugs, and zip-tied the PIAA light grills on because the only thing that holds them in place is a little friction.
