Aux lights top to bottom:

I did a write up of install here

You should let me update the thread with last week's experience prior to rolling your change.

Anyway, what paint/color is that?

The paint is PPG Shopline number 45244 (olive green)
I am really happy with the short beak conversion. I like the look and I think it makes less wind noise than the stock beak. I also put on the TT fender risers at the same time.

Nice paint job WW Ronin! Stupid question: are those aftermarket graphics and if so, where to get them and how to get the originals off the bike before painting?

I'm picking this guy up on Friday. Got white so it could be a blank slate!!!

You can peel those graphics right off. Didn't take to much effort. I got the replacement ones from one of the vendors here. I think it was Humvee graphics or some such name.

well, I finished the OBCDR. Dropped the beemer crossing the Malheur river, but survived overall. I'll post the video of the big splash when I get it.





What's next? WABDR?



Edit: for any of you considering it, let me just whet the appetite. Saturday morning, we were woke up by two bull elk clashing horns just outside our tent. If that isn't getting close to God and nature, I don't know what is. Best damn ride ever.

Post up that ride report. I just did the WABDR and thought it was awesome. I've got my sights set on the OBCDR next year and was trying to decide if I should ride my F800 or rig up WR250R for multi-day. Sounds like your F800 did OK.
