Thanks

Hey Greg thanks for the awesome thread. Not sure if it helps or prolongs the agony of waiting 7 more months. Anyway keep it coming.

You could even tuck them way more inward by lowering it a little so it fits under the Muffler by taking the same mounting approuch as the standard pannieres, 1 rail with a hook over approuch on the pannier and a turnig knob under it to fix it.

Stompgrip

Hey Greg, finally pasted the stompgrips on the tank, gotta say, it really improved grip and riding comfort, plus, knowing that I wasnt gonna scratch the tank up really really helped.

Cutting the damn thing is really really hard, did a ok job I guess, and actually think it doesn't suck (visually) as much as I thought.

I'll post pictures once I take em.

I hope you wear thick pants.. the Stompgrips tore my leathers apart on my R1.. I swapped to the Tech-Spec gripsters and was much better..

But the Stompgrips do GRIP like crazy..

Are any of these products the clear, lumpy, rubberized type material?

Tech spec looks great. I saw a set on an FJR and still may put on my FJR too.

I have had the header pipes ceramic coated for better gas flow and less radiant heat, when the CAT goes I'll be able to get it completed, I chose the satin black on the recommendation of CIC, easy to keep clean, no staining, a quick wipe with silicon will ensure the finish will stay put, but the mud wont. Cant wait for the can.

Both bikes occupy a fair chunk of real-estate but it is not until they are side by side that you can see which one casts the biggest shadow.
The BMW is quite simply a behemoth of a machine and just wheeling it around confirms that it doesn't just look big and heavy - it farken is.

One thing that does stand out in these pics though is the enormous muffler and shrouding on the Yamaha... That has to go.



These bikes are absolutely in line side by side together.
The BMW doesn't look that much bigger than the Yamaha.....


Until you realise that the ground slopes quite considerably to the left and if you change the bikes around.... FARKKK!!! - That thing is huge.
The BMW was not moved in this photo.. Only the Yamaha was shifted to the other side.








Some views just make the Yamaha look Cat-walk-model-thin by comparison.


So.. If you are worried about your mates thinking that you are into riding big fat pigs, pull up beside a GSA all the time.

Greg.
Must be a lot of air under the shrouds of the GSA after seeing what the weight of the new skinny kid on the block comes in at.

Considering that the behemoth is air-cooled, it should be enjoying a more sizable weight advantage, but it doesn't.

Mass centralization and lower CG of the Tenere make it feel like the lighter bike anyway.

Now, if you wan't to argue the merits of the X-challenge against it's competition, I'm with you all the way. It's typical for BMW to quit making a great bike like that, but continue with one that that's a wrecking truck magnet.
