Here's a whole thread on the B & W Tank

Hey, check out this thread on R1150GS w/ the paint scheme. I think they only did it two years, I really like it and it looks good on my R1100 with the beak transplant. There's also a guy on there who...

R1100GS Stock or TT Dual Headlight?

I know it's a longshot, but has anyone tried one of these LED bulbs in a stock R1100GS "bus" headlight. They take H4 bulbs. In my case I actually have the Touratech dual headlight with the metal (no...
