So I noticed I have one of these empty holes on each side of the engine. Do these serve a specific purpose, or are these just for accessory mounting? Thanks!

They are also useful for mounting a sidecar.

Charles, rarely do we see a raked twisted twin. 👍
BTW, about what year were we in TWO, GA? Your dad was there, Glenn C and TurboDan among others I think. Old times, good times. I had ridden down from CT with Ernie L who was on a G’Wing. Me on Rusty, my previous GL650I. Didn’t your dad have his single cylinder GL500 there? Going home I nearly had a head on with a SUV on a rainy day in a BRP tunnel when my windshield and eyeglasses fogged up instantly upon entering. I cut 2” off the windshield when I got home.

You'll be right- Mr Chopchop passed on a few years ago now. If Rogerson ever gets out though...

Charles,

Thanks for the pics! The forward controls look more comfy than the stock position for people with long legs. Did it cause and cornering issues? I guess with the raked front the geometry is different than the stock anyway...
