Took the beast for a ride today for the first time in almost a week. Wow that felt good! I realized, yet again, just how much I enjoy this machine!

I re-installed the final drive with new pivot bearings. Yetiwife was an amazing assistant!

T-10 to Mexico....

It wasn't today but I finally found some time to machine up some new mirror mounts for my GS. Not quite the same satin black result as the BMW paint. I will correct that this winter. I absolutely hated the oem lollipop mirrors so I bought a set from a Triumph 1200XC.... Mucho better!

Tail/Brake Lights

I decided to add a little more rearward lighting for those dillwads that like to tailgate. Bought a set of Skene Designs P3 lights and controller from a fellow inmate. Installed them this weekend and added some LED lights to the panniers as well. The lights on the panniers are plugged into the P3 system using weatherproof plugs. Should make removal of the bags easy if need be. Also bought a used GizmoMill flashing LED tail light . These pictures are without it installed. May not need it at this point. Will install it to see if it makes a difference.

I installed my Gizmomill because the stupid bulb kept burning out. LED's last a long, long time.

Can I ask, in what way are they better? You said you didn't like the OEM units but didn't say why. Is it that these perform better and if so, in what way? Or is it just that you think they look better? Might be interested myself if they somehow deflect huge amounts of turbulent air away from my helmet.

Thanks.

It was about $175.00 for the mirrors and about $3.00 for the aluminum blocks. The stock BMW bar clamp / mirror mount can be used with a M10 x 1.25 helicoil. The stock threads are M10 x 1.5.

Being im 6'5" I saw a lot of my shoulders. The primary reason I used the Triumph mirrors was that they were a few inches lower and wider allowing me to see more with out moving around to much. The second reason I liked them is that they are held in place with a collet allowing them to move some what freely when hit by branches and stuff. Plus I thought they looked cleaner matching the edgey lines of the GS better.
