looks awesome but after my experience with the lack of interest from BMW, with my complaints regarding the excessive heat burning the back of my leg on hot days, on my 2017 GSA, I would not like to take a chance in purchasing one. I think this issue will only get worse with the tighter emmission requirements, although I see they do have a plastic cover over the center stand now that could create a vacuum under the bike taking the heat downwards.
