Once again, fast service from Sanjoh!

Just received my xpel lens protection for my model 60s (I had these on my
models 30/44 and didn't put em on the 60 until now), as well another awesome flashlight. Great service as always!

R1200RT mount options

Hi, I'm new to the forum, I have a couple of questions regarding mounting options on a R1200RT. Seems to me that the ideal spot to install them under the mirrors or in the lower part of the nacelle wings, just below the turn signals. Do you have a mounting bracket or a solution for that?
I have HID's installed on the bike but I feel that I don't have a good way to alert car drivers because the HID's are really bright and the stock high beam is pale in comparison. Not much night riding on open highways but mostly in town.

Thanks!

This is a very popular solution for the R1200RT. Works great with our lights.

Back to square one, they started retirement in July... (per their website main page). I just found the BMR mounts (can be seen here http://www.bmrproducts.com/proddetai...od=020_DLM_R12 )
Will see how it goes.

Just want to comment on Sanjoh's service & products both great. I ordered a pair of 60's, a pair of 30's & a wireless dimmer controller late last Wednesday (10/2/2013) Even though site said 60's were back ordered & order confirmation reflected same, on 10/3 I received ship confirmation that said order was complete and on 10/5 order arrived complete and then some. Sanjoh's lights and controllers now have mini connectors that make installation much cleaner and simpler and based on what I ordered he concluded correctly that I intended to control all 4 with the one controller and included an extra Y connector. I saw this an thought it to be a great addition especially for no extra charge. I had lights mocked up and on within 10 minutes of opening using a spare battery. Everything worked great and as of 10/7 on my s10 they are impressive and truly light up the night.

S10 as in pickup truck? I thought these were motorcycle lights, you mean to say they will work on 4-wheeler? Wow, the wonders of modern technology!

XT1200Z Super Tenere many times referred to as s10 in BEASTS section of this forum if you were ever to venture over there unless you are just attempting to be funny. Lights would however work on anything you might care to bolt them on with an available 12v dc source.

Can you tell when the 30's are on? Those 60's are so bright, I would think it would be hard to tell the difference with the 30's.
I have a pair of 60's and they are bright!
Looks great by the way. If the 30's do make a difference with the 60's, I may add a set.

I got my replacement lens and the new Xpel protection. I have to be honest, when I saw $5 for a STICKER that was supposed to "protect" my lens from stones I was skeptical.

This is no ordinary sticker. The thing is as thick as the glass lens itself! The sticker feels tough as nails. I have a new confidence. I feel like this sticker might protect the bike during a motocross start!

I don't think the protection should be optional. Spring for the extra $5 if you buy these lights. It's cheaper than $10 for a replacement lens.

The Xpel lens protection was designed by 3M for aircraft windscreens
