That is a bad-ass scoot! I dont think I have actually seen one of those before. Congratulations on your purchase! What model years were they available?

Racks and panniers

Well the HTrails racks arrived today...


And they are wonderful...


Here with some small aluminum panniers and the yellow top box. These small panniers are good to handle in heavy traffic. The Pelican is not fixed but that will come soon. The 1440s top loaders will stay in Fl. until the bike gets there.

A friend and brother fireman is slowly loosing a bar-room brawl with cancer.

He's asked me to sell his motorcycle, a 2000 BMW R1100RT.

The bike is in my garage now and I'll take it outside for photos tomorrow but what I wanted advice with was the best place to post the bike (here in Fleamarket and CL is obvious) to appeal to the "right" buyer.

All suggestions gratefully accepted.

RD03 bash plate

First time I see this in ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=370169867644

This fits nice on TA.

Price too steep for me, but maybe somebody here is interested. Seller speaks English and you can trust him, I have bought few things from him as well.

Selling RT

I'm sorry to hear of your friend's situation.

I'd put the bike up for sale at the Internet BMW Rider's Marketplace:

Best, Scott

Sad news Ladder. I know you are on the other coast but I will keep my fellers out for a potential buyer.

I have them on mine too. Great for offroad riding, not so great when sliding on the tarmac for 10m with all the bike's weight on them. They are steel, but it's soft. The left one is now bent backwards a bit, there's a lot of material shaved off (left with half the hight on the outer curve).

Ladder, sorry to hear about your friend.

Why would they be sliding on the tarmac? Crashing?

I've never scraped the pegs with stock suspension. Is that something that people do on purpose?

Skid Plate Materials? UHMWPE HDPE?

Hey all-
After a long absence, I'm getting ready to devote some serious time and energy in updating my 89 Transalp. I want to make a skid plate, but I was thinking of something different than aluminum. Rally cars, and rock crawlers seem to use polyethylene as underbody protection and I was wondering if anyone on here has tried it? I've been reading about the differences between HDPE and UHMWPE (strength vs thermal expansion) but I'm having a hard time figuring out what really matters for skid plates in our particular application. Any advice would be really really helpful.

Also, on the subject of emulators; we need the ones that fit in an XR250 ?

Thanks to Andyg I am now on my way!! Got the plastics, headlight assembly and instruments from Andy and they look fantastic!!

I picked up some nice XR650 forks from Alex in Atlanta (they don't fit my triple tree as I discovered that I have an early CR TT ).

Got my eye on an RD04 tank and looking for front fairing bracket, thanks again Andy for setting me straight on this. Obviously also looking for a XR650 lower triple tree with stem. I do have a lead on a set of triple tree's without a stem. You guys think it is feasable to use the CR500 stem and press it into the 650 lower or is it a pia?

Yeah, me . Happend on lasts years trip to Slovenia on Predil Pass for the first time. You need pretty good tarmac, temp > 20°C and TKC younger than 5000km. My pegs on the Alp are form Motobau for the AfricaTwin, that means the right one comes out a little bit more than the left one and they are about 4cm lower than stock. So it happend in a right curve, hairpin twisty type, bike loaded with camping gear, full 32l tank, being on the front break till the latest possible moment, chasing a friend on his 1200GS... was real fun. Later it happend again without the luggage, also when climbing up the passes, I think it was on Vrsic, both sides. First come the boot tips, then you put your feet away, then comes the pegs... you need to be fast, the curve needs to be narrow and it feels really deep.

Here it's only the boot on a supermoto racetrac racing against a guy on a AfricaTwin:



This time being chased by a 1200GS. Felt like I would touch the ground, but as you can see there was plenty of space left:




Have fun, ride safe!

Andy

Thanks for the nice deal with the AT plastics and gauges. I can use any kind of plastic on this years trip to the desert, but I was really in need of a good pair of boots. So this is what the plastics transformed into on this side of the ocean:



Thanks azabeemerboy for increasing my safety!

Why sould one try to do this? AFAIK the 650 stem fits the TA? Also triples form RD03 and RD04 both fit the forks and the frame, you can even use the ignition switch without any mod.

Cheers, Andy
