This is the best I can do, but post #83 has a good shot as well.

You`re right, it is a beautiful area, pity there`s a bloody motorcycle blocking the view.

I`m sure Bulldust will be here in due course to tell you the specs; they are quite impressive, and make the bike fast and reliable.

Bing make a lot of claims for these, I am yet to be able to varify any of the claims.

As of 10 Nov

Since spy parrot has had his cover blown, Skippy has taken over. "What`s that Skip, The build is coming along nicely, but Ray would be better off if Dave wasn`t out there interrupting things".



When too many lights are never enough. Daytime running lights and BMW 800/1200 GS LED blinkers.



Typical attention to detail. Neat custom brackets to mount blinkers onto oil cooler.





Not the worlds best photo of the neat LED rear light bulb replacement. It also has a ring of small white LEDs that shine down onto the rego plate.



Front brake fitted up.



Very good condition rear guard we got from the UK. First thoughts were to keep it as is, but painting it white will look nicer.



Block has been gutted and is in the process of being cleaned up.

Didn`t know you cared.

I`m waiting to hear back from Ray; he said he got them from the UK?, but I`ll get details.

The daytime running lights are part of a (pair) Narva kit I had on my 1100GS. They are set to Aust. ADR`s in that they work when all lights are off, but go off when park or headlights are turned on. I had to fit an on/off switch to my 1100GS to make them work.

Schaeferhund

hi Dave
I was wandering what your new icon shows, guess, after reading an older thread it's your "Schaeferhund" in the plywood chair, can you load up some larger photos. wifey said: he love's the german stuff, what is your favourite beer? and what is about Sauerkraut und Bratwurst?
cheers

Mate, I`m a Kiwi originally . Our next door neighbours had a GSD when I was a kid and I reckon the dog imprinted on me, I just love the way they move. After two of them keeping me broke for over 10 years I know I would do it all again in a heartbeat, if needed.

Coopers Pale Ale would be my beer of choice, I don`t know much about sauerkraut or bratwurst.

I got into BMWs originally because they were exclusive and supposedly reliable, it`s been a real disappointment to me that they have become so popular these last number of years.

I also have a thing for Glock handguns, but Johnny Howard reckoned I couldn`t be trusted with the ones I had.......Hang on, they`re Austrian, but that`s next door to Germany, so..........

That bike in the pic is an R80 mono, which I bought in Darwin already made up. It had come from Sydney, up around the bottom of the Gulf and on to Darwin and funnily enough, a GSD had travelled in the chair where Beth is sitting. The chair was well set up for travellng, two 20 litre jerry cans could be fitted between the guard with room for a small fridge in front. The R80 was a bit underpowered so I fitted an R65 final drive to help things along, but it still struggled. The leading link front end was great and it was very easy to steer, even with the low Euro bars.

The misses can't get over your dogs in the sidecar, she loves the dogs more than me but calls me a dog, don't get that, and is taking the piss out of me cause I thought GSD stands for G S (BMW) Dakar.
Back in D I was into Guzzy's just got into beemers here in Perth when all my friends here had pommie shit and I gave the Triumphs and Greeves a race with a R 90 S ISDT replica in vintage MX. In 2008 a guy here in Perth put his original HPN on the market and I had to have her and that was the start of my second motorcycle career. now the shed is too small and everything is about the white and blue propeller, but especially love the ISDT era to GS.
Now that emu bitter got sold to SA I can drink coopers without guilt,Cooper pale ale is one my favourites too.
Sauerkraut and Bratwurst is something like Hangi.
As a German I have some issues with the Austrians, they supplied the troublemaker who is now my history but better don't go there.
