I have found the need for an odd one or two  :008:

Having nearly run off a country road at 25 mph because the oem led headlight was so poor I installed floodlights to assist the dipped beam and a couple of twin spots to assist the main beam, absolutely pig ugly but whatís the choice, donít ride at night?

Slip on was sp engineering , means I can clean the swing arm Without losing my knuckles, not overly loud but it really emphasises the twin sound. And itís not plastered with logos.

Weather protection speaks for itself, screen set up and Barkbusters and heated grips

Luggage, kappa/givi rear and a Baglux tank harness as I had several Baglux bags and the hard cases off the BMW Gs which hasnít been on the road in the 18 months since I got this  :062:

Great excuses arenít they? All true too, but that doesnít mean I ainít a tart as well  :164: :164:

Cheers  :763:

I actually bought it use on and off road, downsizing from the 25 year old GS1100 for trail rides etc. But I found it was just too good, too nice and I liked it too much. The Gs has been on sorn for 18 months since I got it.
Although I am now considering maybe some spoked wheels and a bash plate and maybe try gentle off tarmac 🤔🤔🤔 watch this space, perhaps, possibly maybe  :110: :169: :110: :169: :110: :169: :110:
