Extend the handle bars, add another two wheel and you'll be able to flip the bike and roll back to where you started from.

Remus exhaust

Got my new Remus exhaust from CJ Designs, had all the other pipes ceramic coated to finish the job. Will be doing a complete write up with all the goodies I finally added to my 06 950. Later.... Happy....Happy....Happy!

Looks like the one that was on the floor of Big Sky BMW when I was there a few weeks ago. Were you the guy on the KLR trading up?
Nice ride!!! Enjoy!

One way to raise the front end 50cm for a coolant fill.



And does anybody know what these two little nipples in the center are for on the stock tanks? I have done the SAS and I think they came from the carbs. I just capped them with a vacuum hose.

No I did not trade a KLR, but it was the one on the BIg Sky floor. I have been enjoying it! I will post an adventure ride I am doing tomorrow unless I die.

Don't plug those. They are the drain nipples for the tank cap when you overfill. Someone removed the pipes these nipples normally have connected to them and routed downwards.

Not just Bling

Added this this yesterday. My babies sit out in the rain and Miami sun every day so corrosion creeps up and on my GS the plate on the brake lever for some reason went bad quick so this corrosion free number is just one more mekinmeloveit addition.

Exactly. and find some hose to put back on there, as overfilling or a spill on the RH tank might result in fuel dripping on the hot exhaust pipe ...
