Forward planning is required.

We bought the FD an new vehicle a few weeks ago - made a huge fuss about it, took her on a 4x4 training course, and all is well.

I showed the FD the sneak preview pics of the new GSA-LC released earlier this week - said that THAT would be a great bike to have, when it comes out, and after the first release niggles have been sorted...... Leave that to rest for a while.....

Timing is everything, I will accidently walk past a bike at BMW with her in the future......

Is that front end standard?  Looks like a 21" front wheel...
En daai wavy disks lyk ook anders, nie?

Looks like Woody's Wheels.
The back HUB is their superlace setup.

Front looks like a 21'' to me as well. Its really purty.

Now that you mention it - none of those rims seem standard.  The spokes run to the centre instead of the sides.  Rear wheel spokes seem silver and front black too.  Nice set-up though.  Wonder what this will do to the headshake??  :peepwall:
