I just had a rear K60 dropped on my doorstep yesterday. I'll be running this combo very, very soon myself. Glad to hear it works too.

Moto-Amore in California http://www.moto-amore.com/ ships to Canada. Had them deliver a set of K60's a few months ago.

Hellow Guys and Girls,

I am new here.
This is my BMW F800GS
I have now 8888 km's that will be around 5522 miles.
My bike is now 3 mounths old.

Oh and I am from Belgium.

I really love my bike.
Normally next year we are going to the Alps, Itali and Scotland.
But first I have to find a solution for my bagage problem. I don't want panniers because they are to expensive.

Greetings

Im another one whos new here. Got my brand new 2009 800 GS two weeks ago, and its been a great time since. The weather here in Sweden sucks at this time of year though, cold and lots of rain.

Heres a couple of pictures from today, cloudy white skies and about 5 degrees celsius.

The thing I like about the GS cockpit is that you are looking up at the blue sky and clouds going by above your head in the reflection of the tach and spedo.

The windscreen, exposed lighting hardware and the view through the mounting brackets give the GS a quality similar to a B-29 cockpit.

Welcome Trippelke.

Take a look at this for baggage. I recommend it highly.

If you are interested, you can get it in Europe from Adv-Spec.

Thanks, I've got enough left of the TKC for now, but will get a couple of the K60s shipped up sometime this winter to be ready for next season.

Not sure what the implied "intended effect" is either, but that photo does have a touch of class. Very nice visual blend of the white. I never did like the way the Varios seem to "unbalance" the bike.

Let me help. Just to the left is a black and white car, typically driven by police officers. It is shocking how the brakes are applied and the red sea parts when the idiot CA drivers see it. The same goes for the police motorcycles.

Mystery solved.

Smart CA drivers get the hell outta the way of those cars too. Just sayin'
