BMWPW this is a stunning picture of your bike. To me the blue Rally is just the most beautiful 1200.

I took it over Eselbank, Wuppertal and Heuningklip.

The latter being more fit for a baboon with a kierie.  :o

Added pillion seat toolbox.

Works great for full toolkit and raincoat.

Don't need top box anymore that just messes with offroad handling.

Very nice toolbox especially for off-road riding, is that custom build or available somewhere?

Had one of these and got fair milage (7k I think) but the last thousand or so km the Tyre gets very thin and structial damage occurred. I got a slow puncher that I could hardly find but inside there was a crack about 3 cm long

I'll look out for cracks over time. Now already at about 3000km

I had no viable damage on the outside at all, I couldn't even find the leak at first that's how small the leak was. The damage was inside the Tyre
