Been happy with it. I wish it had a little more coverage on the DCT side, but the bars have kept me out of trouble.

I've dropped mine 10+ times off road and the bars haven't seemed to have budged. I haven't measured, but they still look great. All of the drops were low/no speed. I am glad I went with the bunkers.

Nice! Did some offroad stuff in an OHV area here in Oregon. After picking the bike up all day, I'm definitely much more experienced than I was before the trip. I have Mitas E07+ on the rear and...

I think the replacement was a Michelin, but since I pinched it, I just put the OEM Dunlop back in. I'm actually pretty impressed how well they're doing. I may buy their tubes again on the next tire...

Went on a long ride with my brother, who has a 1200GS. He filled our tanks with Premium (91 here in Oregon I think) and my AT ran noticeably more rough. I couldn't tell if my mileage went up at all,...

I bought an Air Hawk cushion that works great. I do get fatigued after a few hours and have to shift my weight around, but it is definitely better than when I didn't have it. The nice thing about a...

I have E07+ on the back and Shinko 804 on the front. So far, I really like them and that combo has done well on pavement and soft dirt.

Just wanted to add a +1 for heed bunkers. I've had them on my standard 18 DCT since I bought it in August, but just now have used them. I went to an OHV area over the weekend and dropped my bike at...

Gary, I had the same problem with the chin strap. It took me a little while, but I found the chin strap adjustment that was tucked into the chin strap pad. After loosening that, the clip no longer...

Just bought one on a clearance deal. I also have a 20s that I use instead of buying the SC1 system. From what I can gather online, the built in mic is in the forehead area near the top of the visor....

Hello,

I upgraded from a 2007 VStrom 650. No real complaints about it until I rode my brothers GS1200. Then, I couldn't shake the feeling that I was too big for the bike and it was under powered. I'm 6'3"...

I got the 22". I figured it may be easier to lower/tilt than try to raise it higher. Plus, our size is right between the max for 20" and min for 22" according to their size chart. So far, I'm glad I...
