It's 8C below zero and loads of salts on the tarmac so it stay in it's lair and I pine
I got the new TTX ESA kit built for rider and passenger weight:
Looking forward on your comments on the improved handling. I'm considering Dunlop RoadSmart II myself.
All these really neat ideas and fantastic projects. I always hated how far my 1200GS leaned over on the kick stand and decided to take on a big project today. Ice arena 1/2 block away for a Hockey Puck, two self tapping screws, a little saws-all action, and about 10 strokes with a file. A whole 10 minutes and $1.50 invested. BIG project. but hey it worked.
I started my bike and took some pictures and a movie,

Yep it does need some paint.
I'm wondering why you kept the foot profile. IMO, the GS has a stupid small footprint, I'd have kept the puck intact for the extra surface area - it'll prevent sinking in soft ground and on hot asphalt.
I bought this bottle opener at a fancy mens shop in Austin, so I probably overpaid. It war around $12. I'm sure something less expensive could be found, but it does seem hard to find any that are nice metal, have a nice shape, and don't have a beer brand name on them.
I drilled small holes and used a rivet gun to slap it in. I hope it won't leak, hopefully the expansion of the rivets will make an ok seal. If it does leak, well, at least I can open a beer to help forget about it.
I really like the look on the bike, and have received several compliments. My only regret is possibly not putting it higher so that it could be used if the case were on the ground too, but I still like it this way.
Looks good, I need one!
RIDE IT!!!!! On a 2 week trip for work, going through serious withdraw.....
Dave, your GSA's footpeg works just fine.
But do they look as good??? Lol
I watched video and was impressed how quiet bike ran, and when throttle was blipped, how responsive it was. Very nice.
My 09 GSA was lost in Hoboken flooding.
I put a deposit down on a 2012 GSA Sand Rover. I think I'm the only person that likes this color. Either way I think it's fitting, the new bike will be named after her namesake....."Sandy".
Sorry for your loss....Congrats on your new ride. My buddy has a white/sand 2012 GSA, nice looking bike
A few miles on the clock the things seem to get smoother. It will eventually need the front timing chain tensioner and stuff. (ticking sound on the left side of the bike.
Need to have the time at home to take care of it.
I'm going to order all the crap to do the work soon. My version of Christmas.
If you can read them!
Is the ticking the tensioner? I have it (more of a clack really) and was hoping it was valves needing adjusted!! Same side. 78+ thousand miles, 2004 GSA.....
