    Thank you, so is there anything that as a newbie I should look at investing or changing on the bike??? Luggage is in the process.
    Anything you more experienced riders of the GS can recommend will be most appreciated 👍🏻

    Hi, welcome to the forum, you'll find a wealth of knowledge on here. And many scathing comments, all in jest though.

    There's not much to change on the bike...but you will.

    I'd consider comfort and safety first: handguard ad ons, decent spot lights, and possibly a screen if it doesn't quite work for you, but get used to the bike first. Re luggage, the inner bags really make life easy, as does a cargo net in the lid of the top box. engine bars if it drops it could save you a small fortune.

    Mudslinger at the rear, and an extender of the front guard.

    probably enough for now.

    Enjoy

    cheers Ali

    Yes twizzle, I’ve paid for the double pack from nippys, has anyone had a ergo 2 screen from there?? I’m pretty tall and getting a decent bit of turbulence on my head.
    Was looking at the side deflectors as well, again any useful information would be very much appreciated 🤛🏻🤛🏻

    So, been a week since I’ve got the bike and been having great fun back and forwards to work, wish I’d done it sooner really!!
    I’ve got a Sena 10s and a Nav V, I don’t think it’s possible but please feel free to correct me.
    I don’t seem to be able to play my anything through my phone when it’s connected to the Nav V, but if it’s not connected I can get everything.
    Is the only possibility of playing content via the SD card option.??
    Again many thanks in advance 🤛🏻🤛🏻
