I've got no problem with the content. Just any with blue or white sleds?

Looks like the Tenere trails scared the piss out of it.

Yep, always having to clean up after these things:


Good thing the underseat tool kit comes with everything you need

And they have to stop for naps constantly...

Wow! You mean to tell me the BMW tool kits now come complete with those two big railroad ties and a cut-up half a gallon milk jug?

I thought those were "dealer only" special tools!

Here's the rapidly-blackening Blue Beast as of today:



The 2-gallon expansion of the stock tank was done by Jaxon at Rideonadv, who also built the skid plate (the term seems inadequate, somehow!). Paint on the tank is rattlecan Duplicolor bedliner, sanded lightly in non-contact areas.



The tank is no wider than stock; all the extra volume is in the shoulders and ridge.
