Re: GL 1000 77

I have the same opinion. Keeping the bike as it was will save the exclusive and characteristic shape of the GW. Caferacers etc. never can be as nice and authentic as the original model which also keeps its value better as when modified in some caferacer etc. IMG-20150927-170851.jpg IMGP1537-jpg-ex-k...

Re: Selected Gear Guage

That's true...............
However if you miss a gear (I seldom do) you are warned at the same time that the indication is wrong for the time being and you have to deal with a situation without indicator as it was before.
All left time (> 95%) you have a handy buddy.
