My 1200 GSA.

This is my Daily ride, it's a 2007 GS Adventure, with a few cosmetic mods.
I use this daily for my commute to work and back, and it very seldom goes off-road. Decided to give it my spin on a triple black, as I doubt I'd ever spend that kind of ash on a new Bike, so I did the following.
Powder Coated the Pannier Bars, and front crash bars Silk Black. Never understood why BMW would have a black chassis, and then fit Aluminium coloured Pannier bars from the factory, it's SO obvious they were an afterthought. This way, all chassis bars are black.. Looks a lot more cohesive.
I also resprayed the Bose and the Tank Cover Gloss Black, and fitted Red Lettering.
Then Powder Coated the GS Panel below that Silk, so it's a slightly different tone, thus adding to the "triple" in black.
To set it all off, I put on some Reflective Rim Tape, both to match the Red Lettering, as well as to assist in night riding, as it's a safety thing for me, and being visible.

I too had issues with the Fuel pump and getting the right hand lobe to push fuel across to the left hand lobe where the pump is, so I fitted an electric submersible pump in the right hand lobe where the sucking Jet pump is.. Now I get 37.5 Liter's out the tank, good for 650 Km's.

That's about it really.. I think it looks quote good for a 5 year old bike, and he's ready for another 5 years..



And here, pictured before I did the front bars etc, and posing with my recently completed "CR".



Cheers

Alan

Use something else for commuting. Got HID low beam, uprated bulb high beam, 2x Clearwater Kristas, 2x Denali D1, 2x LED strips on handguards...

Haven't seen a red one yet

Agreed. various tints of black help distinguish the bike.. Thats what I've attempting to create with my old Juggernaut..
Looks great.

Painted more of the fairings red and powdercoated the wheels flat black. Russell All-Day, GSA tinted windshield and black painted GSA winglets, Wilburs, Zumo, Passport, and a dozen smaller farks.

I love it . . . until next spring when my water baby comes in.

John would love to see your bike. If you don't know how to post a photo email it to mr at my username at yahoo.com. Sounds like a sweet GSA.
