Super stoked, bike already assembled and all my extras transfered to the new bike. Now I just have to wait till the 20th to take delivery. Only bad part is that I am now without a bike. It is going to be 3 long weeks!!!

Did a ride in the Vredefort Dome. Hard hit on a low water bridge. No visible damage until I got home. Top two mounts of the rear wheel hugger broke off! Was planning on removing it anyway😁. I did over R100k km on my previous GS without the hugger.

Stunning bike BMWPE


I decided to finish running mine in on Saturday, so went exploring. Did just under 600kms of road and dirt.

I bought a SM Motech engine guard for my bike. Boy what a mission - 2 hours later I got it fitted. The flippen bracket that goes around the round rear stabilizer between the foot pegs is a bastard.
The gap between the swing arm and the top clamps that go in this area are near to impossible to get to.
My wifes small hands were required.
I must say that the standard BMW plate and brackets are useless and to think that they also protect the pipes - I don't think so.

Thank you

the top clamps (part 5) cannot go over the bar with the nuts (part 11) in place. You have to slide them in after the clamps are in place !! and don't forget the locktite.
Once you have them in place you need to test fit the plate before tightening them. Once the plate is on you cant get access to these...  wtf..

I should have known something was up when the guy at the sales counter asked me if I was going to fit them with a grin on his face..

I did not feel like taking photos at the time therefor the instruction have been added.

Thanks Nish but I meant a picture of the actual skid plate on the bike please.

I fitted radiator guards and am now considering the gear shift assist pro. What do you all think, is it worth it?
Also trying to decide on a head light cover.

Mine had it fitted when I bought it. Its an extremely nice-to-have. But I'm not sure I would fork out the cash to have it retrofitted.
If you riding style leans more to the aggressive, I'd go for it, not so much if your riding style is easy going.
The gear assist likes revs, up and down.

Makes one feel a bit like a Rossi when you go for breakfast run to Mugg&Bean, while in reality it probably only makes you look like a Lorenzo ;)

Hi Brucet
Herewith a close up of the bash plate - very good quality but pricey.

I have added other bits that I have found extremely useful as well:
- Headlight shield
- Crash bar brace
- Cylinder head covers.

I added the gear shift assist pro and have not looked back.
Well worth the money.
You will really miss it once you ride a loan bike without it.

Thank you Nish.

Looks great! Im considering the same bash plate.

I just dropped mine off for the Gear Shift assist thingy-ma-bob and a headlight protector.
