Hi Ricochet.
That's actually the stock 'Low' seat after 25K miles.
I find it's quite comfortable for about 250 miles then I usually need to take a break, get gas, and stretch anyway.

What?!
And put a non-OEM BMW part on my best friend? Never!
Come to think of it, I have to go out to the garage and read the GS a bedtime story.
It likes it when I read selected Ride Reports from ADVrider to it.
"Once upon a time there was a GS who wanted to goto Alaska, via Newfoundland and Goose Bay!"
We are just two homeless vagabonds waiting for a chance to roam the world!

Have GS, will travel.

Just picked up my GSA last weekend .... In the mean time, I added the BMW top case, TT hand guard extensions, TT adjustable food pegs and -shift lever.

On order are Wunderlich front fender extension, throttle friction lock, TT oil cooler guard and TT tank bag, (...somebody take me off the internet ... )

Also, have a TT'd '06 F650 Dakar in the stable...

Finding the GS a real handful on the trails (due to in no small part to my own skill level ) I thought I had fallen out of love with it.

But arriving back home looking at it all dirty from the last remaining puddle in Wales (weeks with no rain till today).....I realise I still have a thing for it.



Only snag is the new look comes off terrible on the clothes....have to lacquer it or something

Knobbies with alloys.....the discerning gentleman's selection First set of TKCs...interesting at first but getting used to them.

Its fine at highway speeds after getting used to it as its just seems to deflect enough air. More like a naked bike. On slower roads and trails its great as it seems to transform the 'feel' of the bike, just like riding with the screen off...feels nice, like a trail bike. It doesnt rattle but does vibe a little, could do with a stiffner inside it.

Oh, and over here with more and more chances to get a ticket its nice to have something that makes you realise your speed, in other words over 80mph or so it starts to feel like that speed. Keeps things real and your not in a bubble if you see what I mean. But its fine at speeds way over that. I put the OEM back on for long highway touring tho.

2 with a flowjet on one page!

Looks like something i'd love to try...
Global Warming?? We have just had a spell of 4 weeks of glorious sunshine so have been out on the saddle most weekends. I tried a previously unused (by me!) forest trail. That was a real workout in 22 degree (C) heat.. And I got bogged in a muddy patch... Must get some TKC's fitted ( and start working on my off-road skills).
I am planning a trip from Ireland to the Arctic Circle (via France, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, etc..) in July and will be planning to ride through Sweden. There are endless kilometres of amazing forestry trails and gravel back roads just waiting to be 'GS'ed'.
I'll put up a map of the planned route if anyone's interested..? If there are any Swedes with route suggestions I would love to hear from you.. Also, any kit suggestions? I have ordered a Wunderlich tall screen and a few other bits and bobs, however i am still looking for an excuse to do a farkle-makeover on the beast.. :)
