What UFO

How in the heck did you notice that? I was still looking at the picture of Moab. That's a beautiful picture.

As someone else said, please don't shoot.

I know! I know! It's too clean. It was still new when I took these photos. BTW... Those are Hepco-Becker bars installed.

Top Case...

Hey Thunderpants...

Nice Bike! Love the color!

Thanks, it's had a couple of additional upgrades since those shots were taken but I kept the Moonstone Platinum colour (yeah I know BM call it granite grey )

The luggage is Hepco and Becker, its their 35 litre Aluminum Expedition model and the part number is 69963.

The backrest is also made by Hepco, they make it for their Journey panniers but it fits perfectly on the Expedition, just needs a couple of holes drilled. Part number is 69951.

Hi All
Picked up my new R1200GSA yesterday.
I got a call early last week to say that it would be ready for delivery on Saturday. I got myself to the dealer first thing Saturday morning and have been tinkering and riding with it since . Did about 400k toady, 100k of which was dirt roads and it was great fun, I had a ball. Out of all the bikes I've owned, I have to say that none have made/make me as excited as this bike has. I love doing big K's and this bike just chews them up. I've been pretty excited this weekend so I thought I'd share it with you all.
Check out some more pics
