side cases and tires

Put on the Anakees and took off the TKCs for the upcoming wet winter pavement. Easy job - just change the wheels - I have a spare set with different tires. Then I began fiddling with new side cases that I gave to myself for Christmas - early. BMW System cases with liners soon to go up for sale: 1 top case and rack, 1 right side case, 2 left side cases - 1 full size and for low pipe and 1 with cutout for stock high pipe.

Took mine for its annual state inspection. Got to check out some vintage Honda's, and had a great, albeit cool, ride home. Tomorrow will probably be the last club breakfast ride of 2012. This time of year always makes me sad.

I thought a lot about this riding season (my second on my 1150GS). This year I made the bike truly mine by putting more miles on it than the original owner - just over 31,000 miles now. Next year I plan to hit up an offroad riding course, and learn what the big girl can do in the dirt.

Ride safe.

Yes, I apparently still know how to crash without hurting myself too much. The bike on the other hand..................

-ordered a BMW-Akrapovic slip-on...like the weight savings.
-ordered a BMW GSA windscreen and mount. worked well on my last GS.
-bought a full set of the un-liked Vario bags...they're perfect for the kind of weekend trips I take. love their design.
-bought a 600mi. service kit (fluids, filter, washers)

That's all for today!

Thanks! I had the dealer add the GSA panniers and tail rack. The only other shiny things I added were the cylinder guard and tank bag from TT. I'll add more later (as is our way). I got it from Eurocycles in Tampa Bay since there is no longer a BMW dealer in Tallahassee. It was a demo model so I got a nice discount. This is the second bike I bought from them and they've done me right each time.

I was somewhat concerned about the seat height (I have a thread around somewhere on this), but at 5'11 (with boots) I have absolutely no trouble handling this bike. After the first few hundred miles the bike is every bit as good as I heard. In fact, even moreso because the stock seat and fairing have been just fine; no plans to swap them out.

In the spring I'm hoping to do an Appalachian tour topped off with some Virginia Civil War sites.
