Thanks to JVB for the excellent service DVD!
It certainly made it easier for a BMW noob like me to get the work done.

Well, those are switches for auxiliaries, i.e. fog lights, add. driving lights, air pump, USB socket, cigaret lighter socket, etc. Whatever you add on the bike and you don't want them to be "ON" unless you turn the Hammond switches ON.

First accessory install on the new bike - Adventure Designs engine guard extensions. Not a bad install and they look fantastic.

Worth every penny, IMO. These are mine after a bad crash. Note the OEM GSA crash bars pulled out of the mount, yet the Advdesigns bars prevented further damage to the cylinder heads. I have no doubt I'd be walking to the hospital if I didn't have them installed.

I read LOTS of positive reviews before my purchase, and seeing your photos and reading about what happened really let me know my money was well spent. I also enjoyed the free M&Ms they sent me with the crash bars.

Vario bags

I know, most people don't care for the side opening bags, and I can understand it. But when I travel, my duffel bag(s) sit accross my saddle and would be a pain to get into top opening bags...besides, they came with the bike. So in an effort to dress them up ( some might call it putting lipstick on a pig ) I ordered a set of the Humvee-Graphics Ralley decals for my bags and installed them the other day. Like them quite a bit and Humvee does a great job




Then on a more practical note, I had to address all the SH*T falling out when I open them, since BMW was not obviously smart enough, or too cheap, to come up with something. Here is my approach



A pair of cargo nets from none other than Harbor Freight for a total of $ 7.00..plus tax. Those little Chinese guys are pretty smart, huh ? Anyhow, originally I installed plastic/metal hooks to hold the nets, but then realized that there is a perfect way of wrapping them around the metal frame. Walla, problem solved.

I got a kick out of mine...

Finally found some free time in my schedule to have a go at installing my new 55w HID's on my R1150GS but somehow forgot the install notes where someone on here said to cover up/wrap the two wiring poles in the cover cap. Anyways I was holding the metal part of the light assembly in my hand when I turned on the ignition.....

That was almost an hour ago and I am still feeling a bit tingly and frazzled. What a moron!
Yes, they sure are "High Intensity"

No, really. That's terrible.
