Lets take a poll.

Black is out, far too common

White is a bit weird. Plus every damn time you're behind someone they'll want to get out of your way. um, maybe that's not such a bad idea. Nev, are you a sidecar novice? In other words - who's got the video camera?

Snow camo, or desert camo? Desert camo is maybe too close to KTM colours?

Blue & white. well, it's a BM, or is it a B Murinal? So maybe it should be polished up so it looks like stainless steel.

GSA Ural

Hi Fellas,
I put a Ural on my 1150 GSA about 18 months ago.Done about 15,000 ks so far and having an absolute ball. I really like the way you are mounting yours especially to the top shock mount. Mine is very Dauntless mounted.I cant wait to see it finished and on the road. Mine is painted BMW silver with a GS tank sticker on the side.
Just east of Bathurst NSW.

Have you decided on Leading Links ? Phil what do think of the strength of the rear swing-arm Plenty of 1150's with sidecars so there should be some history to be told Keep up the good work Phil

Thumb Hi Leigh

Not putting Leaders on at this point. Will have a go at a trail reducing fork bridge. Haven't broken the arm on my R1100R/Box..... yet. Put a rear scooter (Yam. T Max. 160/60R15) tyre on the front....WOW! What a transformation!! Why did I put up with that Smart tyre???Car radials just don't feel right on the front!
See you at "Das Hohlentreffen" in October??? Phil.

Well, the decision has finally been made..



The paint has arrived and the panels have been started.. I need to drop the tank, the front beak and hand rails over at some stage early next week to be prepaired and painted along with the sidecar.. With a bit of luck we might see some paint work by the end of next week maybe.. As far as the colour goes...... well, you will just have to wait and see..




TouringDave, didn`t want to steal your thunder so I left the pretty flowers for yours..
