Seriously dude, don't act old and shit, there will be plenty of time for that when you are really old, like 32 or so

Nice one dude, get some more pics on here once you've started farkling

Yep, it's LED and I'm glad I waited for LED and didn't take the halogen version.
Those are the BMW crash bars

BMW LED headlights are fantastic, nice bright light wide and long spread. Used them last nite in an unlit national park twisty road and they were perfect.

Finally got my GS as well, just got back to the office after picking it up. I can't stop grinning, this bike is so much fun.

Got the tank bag thrown in for free as I actually let someone else take the first bike that came in that matched my specs as they had a trip coming up soon, so I would have had a bike since last Thursday otherwise. It was nice helping someone out though.

I wonder how the black would look (and the non TT versions) from the front.
+1 Those bars take a lot away from the clean look of the bike. Seem excessive unless you're off-roading then who cares about looks.

Not to worry, I kept the broken headlight bucket to fiddle with. I offered it to clearwater on the chance they might want to experiment

Nice work! What type of mesh is it? And is it easy to cut?

But... ok the mesh I understand. How did you form (or find?) the frames needed?
