I'm trying so hard not to be jealous!

Catch you soon.

Looks like a 17" rim from an RT (05-07). It is becoming a more common mod. Some claim in improves handling. See this thread:

Nice bike, sheik! I did a year in Qatar, tried to go to the BMW off-road school in UAE, but it was closed for the summer by the time I figured out it was there. Take care out there!

Thanks. For the boots I just took my old pair and had them re-soled with the 'highway patrol' type soles. Great for local riding and comfy too. Wear them whenever I commute.

I would but my 2 HID ballasts are there and it would look like crap... Maybe one of these days I´ll find a short black screen and see how that looks.

Great looking bike... I have been considering applying some black treatment to some of the hardparts on my 1200 GSA.
