Now I'm sorted!!

Had a problem with legs that are too short.
Lowered seat was too low.
GS seat worked fine.

Got one today.

Now on Monday I will get the red worked in to make it look std again. It is a 2nd hand seat, so it now has some scuff marks on. Will get it covered in new black and red.

Here is the bling I have added to my GSA. Short history first, I bought the bike in September 2006 and we will pass the 75000km mark in this week :deal: All of it was  :ricky: :ricky: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Back to the bling.

HID lights initially by Adventurer, one balast failed and was subsequently replaced by GSing.



Because the HID's were a real investment I needed to protect them and fitted a TT lense cover. To stop the glare at night (I do most of my commuting at night..) I fitted the TT shroud and cockpit cover and recently an "eyelid" cover. The cockpit cover came with the 12v sock.





The orange lense cover I bought from GSing.

At the time I bought and fitted the HID's from Adventurer I also got the tankbag (electrified) and Airhawk seat.







The spotlights were moved up, brackets from camojo.



Other TT bling in no particular order:

Bash plate



LED indicators and tail light



Sportseat



Sidestand plate



PT meter cover



Handlebar bag and raisers



Zumo 660 lockable bracket



Hand guard spoilers



Others:
I removed the rear mud guard



Fitted a tank protector and Autocom system



The Autocom system is build in under the seat.

Oetie, ek sien jou mud guard is af gehaal/ geval. Myne was ook af gewees, maar ekt gevind dat as hy af is, en jy ry nat teer of grond paaie, dan skiet die agterwiel n klomp klippies en modder in my top box se vasklamp sleutel dinnetjie in, dan is dit weer n moerse gespook om die ding skoon te maak. So op die einde van die dag het ek my mudguard weer vasgesit.

I took the mudguard off to save me some costs later if I sell the bike...

Eerste ding wat op my fiets gewaai het is die mudguard(Manne met die dik brill en wit jasse noem hom n Hugger). Klomp geld om hom te vervang as die klippe hom chomp. Like die look van die naked agterwiel. Modder/sand/klip het nog nooit naby my topbox gekom nie. Bere hom innie garage en AS ek eendag besluit om die bokooi te verkoop sal ek hom terugsit. Julle manne het lekker bling op julle fietse :thumleft:

Liewe donner!  :eek7:  BMW fire people in the process from the last 1150 to the 1200 because they had to get the bike 30kg lighter and here you oke's try your best to increase the weight again by 50kg, carrying bricks and cement bags is much more cost effective!

 :)

Agree with Excaliber, the first thing on any 1200 to go is that pos back whatever they fitted to the bike.  :thumleft:

Goose the problem with fitting the spots on top of the bar is oncoming traffic can't see your indicator light when ON and the spots are ON.

It sure must be better to just fit a HID in the GSA and take those stupid little lights off.

Michnus I fully agree.

Once we fitted the brackets, it seemed practical - BUT we have already changed the design of the mount radically & a new more simple bracket that would allow the Spots to be out of the way/protected, also remains below the bars and stops that flippen idiotic vibration on them... must be so flippen irritating to cagers. we have also noticed the issue with the indicators and it must be rectified.

Will also NOT be doing the HiD upgrade - fark that I don't want to ride at night - what on the bike is sufficient for the emergency after dark riding - I want to see the landscape not peer at a strip of road!


Vir julle ouens wat nie indicate nie.... julle gaan julle moere sien.... dan het ons weer 'n "poor Johnny fell off his bike" - dis mos daar vir 'n rede manne!  :mwink:
