Why would you ever buy a limited edition paint scheme just to cover it up? This is coming from another 30th Anniv. owner.

It's only two pieces of plastic. Cost less than $15 and I knew if I screwed it up it would only cost about $100 to have it professionally painted.

I'm only kidding but i do like the 'shitkicker' look

The GSA30 is one of the nicest looking Adventures made and it'd be a crime to paint over the '400 sticker'......I would however like to make it into a 'GSA30 Desierto' with the Touratech fairing......Now that'd look good.......!

FP.

My '07 R1200GS

I've been watching my friends ride these for a while and I decide to join the fun. Here is my new to me '07 R1200GS. I've had it for about a week so I'm just learning about it. I've already learned a lot from this forum.

I unloaded my GSA the other day and I'm sure not missing the heft or the height. Accessories swapped and I'm already to go. Now I just need a little time off work.

Your painted side panel have inspired me to paint mine. I have an '11 GSA grey w/silver side panels. This week she will be red like yours, but I am also painting the piece the has the BMW emblem and the silver part under the passenger seat MAGMA RED. Anxious to see how it looks!

Thanks. Yes, I waffled back and forth between it and a GSA rack. I think I'm glad I went this route but time and use will tell. It did fit up nicely though.

Hi there,

Also "new to the Family". Did an exchanged deal here in South Africa, swapped a 2010 660 Tenere for a 2007 GSA. Think I did ok..


Not how I like to keep my bikes.. So gave him a solid wash and polish, and BMW did an 80 K Service, and some new Road orientated tyres.. Much better.





Now going to do a little Road-orientated cosmetic updates on him to my liking. 99% of my riding will be Tar orientated, but now and then I might wander down some dirt road.. So my intention is to have a cool looking, "current" GSA with some Street Cred. Final finish will look something Similar to a Triple Black..

Alan

I like how you put your aux lights above that bar. Wonder why BMW didn't think of that?

(because they'd sell less replacement lights)

It's starting to change!
Got rid of the Varios and added the Adventure Cases. Also added Altrider crash bars, BMW LED aux lights, Wolfman tank bag, Macine Art Moto front and rear mudguards, TT rear rack, Altrider potentiometer guard and a TT sidestand foot.
Not much left to do but ride it!

Milk Crate Mania

Just thought I would show-off the milk crates! My friends are pounding me hard about them :milkman! I'm telling you milk crates take utilitarianism to a HIGH LEVEL! My sleeping pad, tent, and sleeping bag ride in the crates along with whatever I grab fast or need quickly. They are my seats, tables, and tent bed stands. I agree they are an aesthetic abomination, but they work so well! OK . . . all the wise guys should take a shot - I deserve it!
