Aux light mount for GS800

This mount was developed by a local training instructor saw way too many light bracket failures. I have to Thank ADV Member SOP Dirt-Rider for sharing the design and his support for what we are doing.

One thing that I have personally witnessed is that the brackets that attach to the headlight bolts will cause severe and expensive damage to your Gs's headlight structure should you take a fall.

This new bracket is made from 12 Gage Stainless steel and sandwiches between the body work of the BMW GS800. It will fit up threw 2012.
It is a one piece design built to be rugged and look great.
WE have added a slot where you see two holes for the light mount, that allows a rider to mount there lights exactly where they want them.

It will work on all Cyclops Aux lights and most likely work on any aux light.

WE have not finalized prices yet, but expect them to be in the $80.00 range. Powder coated black.
Parts will be available on 9/5/2013 or before
What do you think?

If any of you are wondering how well this holds up all I can say is it handled the COBDR without a hickup, some dual sport riding at the Rally in the Gorge, rides during the TT Rally in Plain, bits of the Northern legs of the WABDR, a bit of drifting at the MOA, and one of our ADV Camps. I would say I have 6,000ish miles and see no reason the find something else.
I would strogly suggest some blue loctite when reinstalling the screws for piece of mind. If you are worried about the weight take a peak, i also have a 530 Penetrator mounted onto the beak. I use it for fill and 2 of the 10 degree Long Ranges for distance. I had the D2s previously but they have since been relegated to a quad as they just didn't work as well for bombing down gravel roads at 2 in the morning.
