GS1200 on the to Tibet - OFF ROAD

Who say that GS1200 is not off road bike?
That day we made 220 km distance for 11 hours riding . No food , we had only our water with us. We must drive this road because on mountains ( where we passed few days ago was blocked with snow.

Great trip, Alex! We need a ride report on it. I'm curious, is the reflective tape your own doing or was it a kit? If so, from whom?

Great pics, Alex! I just love seeing a properly dirty 12GS! Couple of questions:

- Is the relflective tape on your bags a kit, or did you buy some and cut it up?
- Did you do that your custom paintwork? And did you come up with the design?
