Thumb another thumbs-up for Mick in Goulburn

He did my 1150GS about 4 years ago - couldn't be happier. I did a 4000km over 8 days at the end of last year and never had any sore-arse issues.

Enjoyed the RR. I recollect driving over the Tops in a VW Golf around 1978 - been meaning to do it on the pig.

Have done BVW about 5x over the last couple of years - beautiful country.

Wicked Stebel on 1150 GS

This was also one of the early mods on my 1150 GS. Around $45 for the horn and $15 for the loom/relay I on eBay as I recall.

I installed it in the void where the non-fitted ABS would go. Well...

I've had them on my 1150GS for over 20000km mostly tarmac. They were the very first mod after buying the bike - I never felt secure with the OE pegs.

Can't recommend them highly enough!
