There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

Side Panels

Might already be in the thread. If so, I missed it. Filled the unsightly holes on each side with the Ilium Works side panels. Not really sure why BMW didn't have a panel there.

Just put this screen on the GA. Transformed the bike from nervous and wiggly to stable and normal. I am talking about riding in dirty air on the highway. Got it from a forum member for a great deal. I am not saying you need to get this exact shield to get these results but this is the first shield I have tried other than stock. BIG improvement ! The one I have is clear with the hole in the bottom and no vent.

Maybe just wants to be able to see it .... I've had mine in my dash from the beginning and most of the time the sun washes it out. A better location makes it usable.

For me, the only "must have" is a top case for the GT. Everything else is a "nice to have".

I'm hoping they make them for the GT/GTL soon.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full.
All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
