it will work on most bikes with a flat bottom frame. lifts front or rear tire depending on placement on the bottom.

Maybe rubberize your contact points (Plasti Dip?) to reduce scratches. Looks pretty dandy though.

Nice work with the 690 exhaust! Looks great and I agree about loving a quiet pipe. Can you post a few more details and picture on fitting it to the Dakar?

Thanks.

yea i can take more pics if you want, all i have so far are the ones i posted on this thread. it was really pretty easy to set it up once i welded the reducer piece on the inlet of the 690 muffler. i sure is nice to rip around fire roads and city streets without attracting too much attention and no more smelling like exhaust after a ride with the built in cat converter in the 690 muffler!

Cool2 New BMW concept bike!

That's what I would tell people.
Maybe embellish a little bit too...

"Yes, this is the latest design in testing, no pictures please folks.
The ultra trick internal disc rear brake that looks like an old design drum brake.
It protects the disc and pads from water and grit damage."

"The lower CG and fat tires are for the "Round the World" guys next TV show.
They are going to ride from Prudhoe Bay in Alaska all the way to the tip of South America this time.
Too many potential buyers were put off when the boys couldn't pick up their bikes after a tip over.
So, BMW put this lightweight design into a rush pre-production test phase... Don't tell anyone you saw it."

lol thats a good idea! its funny how i been trying to keep the look of the bike stockish looking and make the bike look factory stock with the paint graphics and stuff. i hear people at local hangouts saying things like, its bmws new model, they make so many different models for everything. or im going to google bmw explorer when i get home.

put grip heaters on for the winter, they work ok with foam grips but a lot better with regular grips for sure. i will need them for some snow riding this winter.
