It's weak, but here it is. If we can get more folks interested and more information, I'll get a lot more in depth.

+1, The only difference between my '04 silver, and the '06 white, is paint, and seat cover color.

The marketing people at BMW did a great job.

If you ever get a chance to check this bike out, do. This man has beat the shit out of it. I wish I'd taken some close ups.

He really does ride it like a dirtbike.

He's got more guts than me.

yup!

I just want to ride it the way that it was advertised. A true dual sport.

Short arm

I gotta ask: What is the long "appendage" coming up from the cockpit?

Fancy camera/video mount? Love it. HB Bags? Very nice as well.

Corbin makes a decent seat with a backrest option. Perfect for taking the kids on. Much less likely to fall off during the wheelies. They have the seat in heated or unheated versions. Or buy the heated one and unplug it.

The long appendage is my camera mount. It is a flexible arm that I put a quick release, then a camera in waterproof case. I'll see if I have a better photo.

Here is one.

That is totally cool. I used a similar device to mount a video camera to my windshield when I took my kids to Alaska last year. Very cool.
Where did you get it? (or the parts for it)
