Darn it, I want those silver wheels like on your silver bike. I guess I'll live with the black ones though.

It looks great, but I'm not sure how my Raven beauty was diverted to Chile? It must be some conspiracy or sumpin!! BTW, what is your source for the Bagster cover and tank bag? If we get them in the USA, they usually have to come from Europe as far as I know. I'm keeping one of my credit cards in the freezer since if I don't it would be burning a hole in me pocket and still too early .

The police bike looks darn good. Whose engine guards are those on that bike? They look to extend outward more than others I've seen. I wonder if the police will mind if I put a couple of blue flashers on me bike so I can get the left lane hogs to move over .

Its the special services kit, it's not as much a crash bar as it is a easy pick up bar.

It sthere to prevent the rider getting stuck with its legs under the machine, and with its "rollbar" in the rear its unbelievable easy to get on its wheels again, push de bars down so it lies on the flat sides, wheels off the ground, then hoist and it will almost pop on its wheels automaticaly :-)

Oh and a blue light gets you a hefty fine overhere, even orange flashers are heavily fined these days...

Nope it's our Milk, full of growt hormones, the Dutch are even longer then the Masai ;-)

We even call it "Melk de Witte Motor" (Milk the White Motor) so we grow and grow, ideal for the Bones all that liquid Calcium ;-)

But if those longfolk keep eating, well they dwarf motorcycles, even a GSA looks small with my friend J-P on it...

I thought that was a new BMW GSA prototype redesigned so that I could actually touch the ground!

I would really like to have the silver wheels also, but doubt we can special order. Might give it a try tho.
