Lekker Mike.

Improves sand riding.  That's a new bonus.
My hart kom affie plaas, Waar die Wind en die Son en die Stilte my speelmaats was.

Everybody falls off. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't.

Just back from Botswana and the thingabob on my 1150GSA was a gift from God. With panniers she power wheelied in first and just by shutting off the power and back on again in second also gave wheelies. The bike was smooth on power delivery which REALLY helped riding in thick sand, made it climb up on top of the sand almost immediately. On the pans I broke through the crust into mud a few times and the smooth power delivery got me outta the kark quickly.

Very well done to Boer and Schlowy, big thanks.
as long as you and bike are home safe ,I am happy  :D

Probably a silly question, but rather safe than sorry. The 2010 GS and 2011 GSA will use the same module, right?
Beer isn't the answer. It's the question. The answer, is Yes!

All the 1200GS models and F650/800GS take the same v.7 Accelerator Module.

BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

Do you have to disconnect the Booster Plug if you take the bike for service (at the agents)?
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

Depends....

Depends on if your motorcycle is still under warrantee....
Depends on your service manager - mine I told about the plug and he said "No problem". Can't speak for your manager. (I service at Bavaria in Centurion).
I don't always drop my bike, but when I do, I prefer to drop her in front of a crowd

Thanks.  No warraty any more... ::)

I go to Zambesi.  I will ask them when I make the next appointment.  But I will rather disconnect if it is going to mess with their diagnostic equipment.

No. The workshop manager at our local dealer knows of the AM and has no problem with it. He needs one for his bike, in fact, as he says that it runs too lean.
