Good luck on the trip. Nice triple black. Did you install that built in tool box? Looking forward to the trip and pre ride farkel fest.

Yesterday, I went to Capitol BMW in Raleigh, NC to pick up my bike. Jon, the service manager, assisted me with everything. Since it was pretty cold outside, and it looked like rain all day, he allowed me to farkle my bike inside his service bay. I installed all of the non-electrical stuff yesterday and it looks great. I did take a bunch of install photos, but I left the adaptor for my camera to my iPad at the dealership. Today, I'll be heading back for the electrical install: GPS, heated gear pigtails, radar receiver, aux lights, HID headlights retrofit, oh, and the oil cooler guard.

I'll be posting photos tonight of the build, including: foot pegs, skid plates, fuel line guards, throttle potentiometer guard, washable air filter, tool box, and supplemental engine guards.

I picked up my last GSA in NC a couple years ago and road it back to NYC. The high the whole ride back was 25F.

I bought heated gear and it was delivered the day before I flew. I installed it untested and road it back. It was a life safer. Also a life safer my sister and her family were visiting friends in Roanoke Va, so I crashed her friends house for the night unannounced.

I arrived home 12hrs before that 19" snow storm shut down NYC. Ah good times.

My new 2012 is only about 3 miles awaiting pick up. The riding adventure isn't there this time, it's just the lost check in the mail for 2 weeks now...

Good luck with your ride, have fun.

Photos as promised...

The bike at the dealership service center. It has been fully checked out for me and had the ASC option retrofitted and programmed. The bike has every option except tire pressure monitoring and the alarm.

The final drive guard installed...



And from below...



I do not think this will really protect the final drive off-road so ill probably find a skid plate type guard. The above guard will definitely help in a road riding get-off...

This skid plate is mounted to the frame in back, instead of the rubber mounting screws at the back of the motor... This also showing the BDCW center stand skid plate...
