I did it for a friend but I thought you guys can be interested as well.

I finally got my brand new F800GS Bye bye to that thumper-japanese-thingy...

Surprisingly it was delivered with Pirellis Scorpion Attack. The original accessories is the BMW bash plate, OBC, LED-indicators and centralstand.

Next up I will browse through the Touratech catalogue :). Will probably also get a lower wind screen. The original makes the wind hit me right at the neck, causing an irritating noise even with ear plugs inserted. When I´m standing up the noise dissapeares. Maybe I will try the 650-wind screen instead, comments?

Farkles list....

Touratech large windscreen, brake fluid res guards front and back, and brushguards, BMW skid plate and bar riser, Wolfman tank panier, BMW top case. Metzler Karoo tires; wail on the slab but solid on the gravel and tracks. Can't decide on paniers....

Going to ride it for a while like this and see what's next.
