well might as well pull the front wheel off .......and then there's frame gussets too......OR box it up and sent it to Germany as AW's frame is getting kind of lonely.....or you could always use the motor for an ultra light.

Plenty of options for a dead R100GS....well at least the drive shaft is good.

Say wha? What happened to the cow? The figurehead of the airhead rallye team, the flagship of the fleet. Say it's not so. Say no harm hath been visited upon her.

Not far off, My internet and phone connection is so flaky that it oscillates like a sinus curve. Maybe Orcon Genius is not so smart after all.

Is baby blue paper towel really common in Germany or something, or is the same set of HPN inserts I found last time up for sale again? Different seller, I wonder what the story is.

http://www.ebay.de/itm/HPN-Gabelkart...#ht_500wt_1300


and to avoid going back through the pages for the last link, this was the last ebay link.

Well, I think you guys might be onto a good thing, because they seem to be going up in value.

705 last time,
801 this time!

I've had enough of work today... need to start thinking (dreaming) about riding the G/S accross the desert plains...soaking up every bump and obsticle thrown at us......roost flying off the rear wheel (i must have done the 1000cc upgrade in the dream), the sound, the view.....

Can you tell its been really wet over here? :)

I'm just about out of other things to spend money on for this bike. I am getting antsy about this upgrade. Its the "you want, but can't have" syndrome! Makes me really twitchy!
