Great looking GS. Love the wheels.  Can't tell what the aftermarket electronics are on my phone.

I see a very nice electronic tach nicely fitted into the housing for the stock mechanical tach, a Yoshi electronic temp gauge, a PLX Devices R-500 Air Fuel Ratio / EGT / Knock analyzer and what I believe is a transmitter for automatic toll payment for toll roads. 

There are so many cool details on this bike...like the Brembo brakes and the new triple trees and fork setup as well at the forged wheels in modern sizes and new rear swing arm.  It looks like the forks are adjustable preload and air assist if you look at the fork caps.  what do you think of those carbs?

A very, very cool bike.


But what's with the oil tank in place of the engine sprocket cover?
