These were taken the day I picked mine up!

I've now got AndyStrapz panniers frames coming and the factory bash plate and crash bars. Come on Yamaha Aus, get these parts in for us. We're all here waiting!

Cannot wait until I can get here dirty. Will hopefully get out to the Simpson Desert in a months time!

Cheers,
Dave.

The Beemer looks all sad, tired and "I give up". I was thinking the same thing.

They look very cartoonish at some angles, those Beemers.

Well I reckon they're both good looking bikes. I just happen to like blue, so the S10 looks better to me.

Old Git Ray Very nice your bike.
I have a question. These tubes that you marked in red in the picture ...

Why are these? How do you put the tubes in the protective iron?

They are empty now. Later they will contain tools and spare parts. To keep some weight foreward.
They are ion place now with plastic cable ties. Later with steel ties.

they are tool tubes. they started life as a tube to store operator manuals on tractor equipment and have evolved from there.

damn OGR, i envy u! :)
not that the bike isn't available in belgium, just don't have the cash and got some other plans atm. but definitly will get myself one if i'm going to upgrade from my 660 after my RTW.

very nice setup altho the topbox isn't that great looking for this beast imo. love those MM's. i specially went to the UK to get myself the small ones + top pannier. how wide is your setup with those gigantic panniers?
how is the large screen working out? i would think if u go climb a hill, u'll be hit in the face by that screen. it happened to me twice, but it can be the lack of skills. :P
