    Thanks Cotswold Motorrad.........

    I booked my bike into Cotswold Motoradd to have some work done.......
    BMW panniers supplied and fitted, Cruise control supplied and fitted, LED indicators to replace the standard articles and all brakes cleaned and new rear pads fitted.
    I knew my bill would be quite hefty, due to the nature of the things I had done, I did my homework, I phoned around and got other prices and quotes, I'm pleased to say Cotswold beat all other prices
    and the work was carried out exactly to the schedule they'd advised.
    All parts taken off the bike were returned to me, neatly packaged, never know if I'll need them in the future!(they even presented the old brake pads for my inspection), obviously they were binned.
    I was kept up to date via email as the work progressed and I collected my bike as arranged.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I saw my bike, when I dropped it off it was very dirty due to the rain and general crap on the roads where I live, my bike was now in showroom condition and looked
    brand new(thanks guys).

    Everything works perfectly, the cruise control really makes riding a pleasure, it's really handy to avoid speeding in 30&40mph limits!

    I'm not giving praise for the sake of it, if there were any issues I would be more than willing to raise them, but these guys really do offer excellent service.

    I remain very impressed, thanks again.

    Thanks for the use of the RS by the way, same engine etc as my "R" but quite different to ride, I found it surprisingly comfortable and it was really very nice indeed!

    Cheers
    tony

    See you next time!

    Folks can be quick to moan when things don't go right, so only fair to give credit where it's due.

    Nice one

    Is it possible to retrofit cruise control to a 2010 GSA? Did almost 400 miles today coming back from France and my right wrist was starting to ache in the last hour or so?

    I'm not sure about that Lord Snooty, maybe someone else here can advise, I'm sure a quick call to Cotswold Motorrad would be able to confirm one way or another.
    My bike is a 2015 R1200R lc, many of them come with cruise control if they are specced with it from new, unfortunately mine didn't, it was an expensive addition but more than worth it in my opinion.

    cheers

    I suspect you'll find that your bike with its old fashioned throttle using a cable means means the answer is no... anyway I thought your wrist where strong after your recent internet action
    Sell my bike?
    I would rather stick wasps up my arse !

    I have used this on an R1150GS, Super Tenere and now a Tracer. Works very well

    I couldn't agree more, I have always been pleasantly surprised at Cotswold, it should be even better when they move to their new premises
