It was. We wished we had vaginas too. And if you look closely, you'll see I'm eyeing that pair of spare gas cans on Harcus' bike....ah hell,I won't need those....

That explains why you keep buying chick bikes. Now I get it.

With the Buell it comes as it's own vibrator, smart!

Check out this method of carrying extra fuel on a Scram.

The product is a Kolpin. More details over in the Scrambler section in the Beasts. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...41616&page=281

Those are handy. I did a similar set up on my KLR



It's just not worth becoming Harcus's bitch over a gallon of gas.

I kinda wonder if Skifast really ran out of gas. I think he just liked
the whole thought of paybacks. Ewwww

And... see that dot of light waaaaay far away? Apparently V-Stroms are faster then GSs:
That is till you hit a bump and the strom bottoms so hard it breaks in half.

Then you take a little JB weld, orange paint and make a KTM.

Make that grey tape. the JB weld might make it too reliable.

Electrical work

OK I need some help with installing new lights on the GS. I'm selling my neighbors 1200GT and he is giving me his aux lights, fog and driving. I know very little about electrical. He has his lights hooked up the crazy way where you push in both blinkers and the lights come on, that stuff. Anyone willing to help? or should I just take it to R and R.

I would recommend a simple fused relay with a toggle switch. That would be really easy to install. If you need help, get the lights all installed where you want them, and then say when your ready.

I'm not sure about any tricks specific to BMW bikes, but I installed a relay on my bike for the heated grips and 12v outlets so I'd not forget them on while the bike was parked and it took me only about 1hr to get all the wiring done.

Like pluric said, just mount the lights and if possible find a route for the wires into a location close to the battery. The rest is easy.
