Tank guards are ebay....they are ok, but i think they fade rather easily.
To get the radio back just add XM to a Zumo. Makes the ride oh so nice.
Ditto on the proper cruise control...im not in love with the dial type avail on the aftermarket but its better than nothing i guess. Plus if i find myself on a road that makes me stay at the same pace too long.....I chose the wrong route!!

It was Valley of Fire, they do look alike that is for sure, and my buddy Kurt took the shot, guy has an eye for the camera.

Thanks forthe tip on ebay. I will have to have a look. I just got a dial type cruise as well...it willhelp in the highway. I know what you mean about finding yourself on those roads...unfortunately we run to VA from PA quite a bit just to blast around the roads for a saturday. So the quickest way down after work friday night is interstate 81....gotta do what u gotta do.

Hey Tuono,
Twalcom USA also carries the tank guards, I believe they only come stainless but not sure about black. They're nice but kinda spendy!!

Here is mine just rode home from Seattle where I bought it. Never been on a R1200GS before, so kind of a wild hair I guess. Went thru 100+ degree heat and the worst traffic in Portland to a down pour just outside Carson City, Nevada and the worst $100 a night hotel ever in Bishop. Still one hell of a 1,200 mile ride I had a smile on my face the whole way.

The guys at Sandia BMW in ABQ hooked me up with this beauty on Friday. I tried to do the Super Tenere thing for a year after selling my GSA and HP2e. It's so good to be back home...

I like the look of those, but is there any practical use for it? Not sure what it would really protect, but I am no expert on the subject thats for sure

At speed, the wind whistles through the holes and that effectively repels deer.
