I didn't notice before, because I wasn't wearing my super dark sun glasses and had to keep looking away, but the girl on the side of the bike looks like she is throwing up as well..

All right already. I'm leaving. Just wanted it to warm up a bit first. We are taking two days to
get to the border. The trailer trash are doing it all Sunday. Cross Monday morning together and
let the grins begin!!! I gotta admit I'm a little giddy.



Some say I have a bit of a sweet tooth. Nooooooo.

I believe spit up is the proper term. I hope I don't have to explain that to you.

Thought I'd check in with a fresh photo of the bike. My workbench is finally empty of parts waiting to be bolted on

I totally agree...i have one more where u can actually see how big are those stones. It's pretty steep also.
Those Karoo's were throwing those big stones all over the place, including my boots and exhaust headers on the right side. One of the pipes got dented because of poor design of the oem skid plate. Next month i'll take that peace of crap to a alu speciallist for a mayor pimp. :)

Mine Too.
Just finished this week installing,
AltRider Luggage Rack
AltRider Crash Bars
MicaTech Luggage
MadStad Brackets

The ST is an awesome bike and deserves nice kit.
I'd post pics but I can't get it out of the garage due to slick icy roads here in Colorado. Maybe tomorrow.

What Tank bag did you choose?

Ohhh my gawd Pluric, that makes me puke. Mite not if it wasn''t a beemer. Keepin my Tenere black after seeing this. I do kinda like the blue ones tho. My dealer thought a black one would get here ahead of blue ones, why I ordered a black. You steal my tank bag??? That picture of your trunk fulla candy made made me think maybe you did. Hava blast a down there in La Paz buddy. Am sure you will. Snowbound in Idaho.

I've had my baby four months now, managed to put just on 10,000kms on her. Best bike I've ever owned.

It's been in the 60s and mostly dry here if I stay out of the high country, just thought you'd want to know

That's the Bags Connection "City" tank bag mounted on a gas cap ring. Seems to be the trendy choice right now, but there's a reason, it just fits and works great.
