Laugh

My Remus exhaust can. Really not necessary, probably adds no performance, but oh man that sound! So sweet!

Just the slip-on on a '13 Adventure. As far as I know the '14 is no different?

A big foot for the side stand. The standard sidestand footprint is way too small for any firm support off road

Big Foot, Risers, Tires and Exhaust

I've added the following:

Big foot side stand
Two Brothers Exhaust (love the sound)
Rox Risers
Karoo 3 tires (stock scorpions lasted 6,000 miles on the rear)
Wunderlich lip (I'm 6'3")

Glad I have done all of the above!


Up next is a Fuzeblock. Considering getting a different windscreen to reduce buffeting

BMW F800GS Adventure, bought July 2013.
Currently 10.800km.


Avant FGS front fender extension

R&G shocktube

Pyramid Plastics rear hugger
The MudSling/Maier splash guard type works better, but it does not fit the Adventure model, hence I went for the hugger type.

Future:

Need to decide which crash bars to go for. Adventure-Spec will most probably be the choice.
Need to decide which tire to switch to once the Scorpion Trails are worn. Heidenau K60 probably.
And I need to do something about the windscreen, which isn't very good on the highway for me.

i have the sw-motexh crashars and love them. Ive ran the K60 and really didn't like them but i have a set of TKC80's and love them and i am a 50/50 rider. The K60's just didn't do it for me on wet roads or in the corners even with the knobbies you don't get the milage but you are leaving some good rubber on the road with traction. i just felt like the K60's didn't stick and maybe that why they get such great mileage

OK...

Scott Steering Dampner
H&B Crash Bars
BMW Adventure GPS (Montana)
Touratech Locking Mount for above
InReach Satellite Tracking
Black Dog Skid Plate
Black Dog rear rack
Wunderlich Tank Bag
Wolfman Rocky Mountain Panniers
TKC80s or K60s (depends on what I'm doing)
Clear film in tank.

After riding the Colorado Back Country Discovery Route I realized it needs help with the forks, rear shock and rims...

Probably go with Konflict Front Forks
ESA compatible rear shock (I'm told the Ohlins makes one)
Woody's rims.
