I liked DRTBYK solution using R100GS fairing (I think it is from R80GS but maybe I am mistaken)

DRTBYK could you post some installation instructions/photos ?
Where you bought it ?

One more question please

What this gold/bronze part under the TT roadbook is for ?
Where I can find it and what was the price ?
Sorry for the delay - work...work...work.... well not really


The fairing is a R100GS (1992?) and I ordered it from Chicago BMW last year. As for the mounting, well it is a DRTBYK fabrication. I will try to take a few pic's but not sure when as I'm getting the '04 Adventure prep'ed for Japan and Beijing to Munich in two months.

As others have already noted, that "gold thing" is a Scotts Damper and I acquired it from James Renazco as a HP2 Riser Kit. Good price and great service and the fit is perfect!

Cheers,

Thanks DRTBIKE

As you can see I already proceed to a similar installation but without TT RB base. I do not like relocation of the BMW speedometer.
On 13th I will have also the fairing from R1000GS and as I can see from your photo it should cover Speedom/RB/IMO.
I will post pics when I finish

Out in the "sunlight"





The Renazco seat arrived in the mail this morning and I took the bike out for a little spin.

That has to be the Alyx from Germany that I know. I recognized his bike right away. I heard he moved from Arizona to Oregon. Tell him Geoff from Huntington Beach says hello and that I now have an HP2 as well.

uote=ridgeback]But where did you get the photo to quote? Alyxmoto has not posted on this site under his name yet so this must be a very old post or posted by someone else.

I agree with that on the plastic top case and transparent windscreen. These items are only for commuting. Not esthetical but practical. Many guys here on adv rider do the same.

About 17" in front, and street tires on the front and on the rear....................you shall try this combination on twistie mountain roads..........really. not talking about 320mm front disk.

This bike has an hypermotard inside, as well as a super enduro with a simple switch of tires................

Allow me to say, that this is what accesories are for.
To improve the motorcycle in respect to the specific use we intend to do with it and within the purposses the bike was made for.
So I think Alfaris did what made him feel comfortable for the specific (occasional) use.
If he had GSA he could never convert it to do what HP does.
Owning HP you can make some mods to expand the use of the bike. And on the same time you are not jeopardise the character of the bike.

For the aesthetics ..... I think it is too subjective for each one of us.

you make me smile, cause I come from a 06 GS1200ADV sold a month ago to buy this HP2..........
I know perfectly the philosophy of the HP2, i see yours, and i consider that mounting cases or a 23 lts tank is also valid. ¿why not?. by the way such a great carbon screen holan is for the hp2, i love it

That is the magnificient thing about HP2 you can transform it for any use intended.

Most important thing is that on a matter of minutes i can switch from SM set to commuting set, or to pure off road set.

So what is the HP2 philosophy?

from factory: a minimalist off road hyper enduro, with a set of SM wheels to transform it on a hypermotard.

from us: as many philosophies as owners are. each one of us has one, an that is the great thing of this motorcycle, we can addapt it for almost any use.........

i agree , no matter how much money you put on a GS1200ADV to make it more ENDURO . It´s still a trail bike.

on the other hand, spending some money you can make your HP2 an Adventure bike, keeping its enduro abilities.
