ITS Black
« on: August 31, 2018, 11:29:39 pm »
I recently bought my self a 2014 BMW GSA triple black as a commute bike as my Ducati Streetfighter is really not a smart ride to commute on!!

I PROMISED my self that I wouldn't mod her and it was only a boring commute bike - just a newer version of the old BMW GSA I had, hated and sold a few years ago...............Well after ten minutes on her it was clear she was worlds apart from the old BMW I had - WOW, what an amazing bike and so capable!!

I think about two days after buying her I had already bought, ordered, sourced, planned to do the following:

Paint the tail all black
Paint alot of parts black
Custom Number Plate
Givi Top Box
Givi Tank Bag (too big so will sell)
Puig touring dark screen
SW Motech headlight guard
SW Motech gear selector
WildHeart orange LED cover
SW Motech bar raisers
Akro Titanium Headers
Akro Black slip on
Recovered the Adventure Seat
Removed BMW badges added custom trident logos
Doubletake Mirrors

I did the Country Trax intro to offroading course - WOW that was awesome and the outride was Amazing and made the bug really bite!!

The bike is currently in Donfords Cape Town having all the bits sorted so Cant wait to get it back and ride again!!


Pics of bike as I bought her and compared to the "Mistress"

I will post more pics  of her finished  when I get her back next week

Thought it might be you from that other two wheeled forum.
Yes I too like to mod stuff and am fond of the famous quote from the late Henry Ford "you can have any color you want as long as its black".

I started a company years ago and sold but but kept the logo so when ever I modify something Iím proud of the logo goes on it - its  also subtly on the seat too!

You need to paint your helmet black as well  :deal:

looks awesome.

Would you be interested in selling your OEM headers to me please?
Alternatively if you want to keep them for when you sell would you like to swop for 2017 headers in perfect condition (no dent etc)

Haha. Thatís my helmet for off road only, it killed me to buy a white one but itís a lot cooler than a back one in the heat.

My day to day is a BMW in black with black visor and comms installed
