Versys stand

The Versys doesn't have a center stand. I needed to park it
up right to change oil and general maintenance. This is what
I came up with. Utilizing stuff I must of been saving for this
purpose . I'll call it a prototype until I make (if) a fancy one.





any old VW Van owners recognize this?






It works!

Tom Very Cool!!

Put some office chair wheels on it, then make a copy for the rear and you can push your bike around your shop as well, :)..

I am 3 steps closer...

New fork tube and seal, new battery and new front tire mounted up... I gotta find an o-ring for my 90 degree fuel disconnect on my 2002 BMW 1150 GSA then I should be good to go on my first trip of the year next weekend.

Thanks to S1Marks... if he hadn't stopped by I might have put it off and likely wouldn't make it.

I've wanted to re-mount my BMW topcase to my HT luggage rack on my F650GS for some time. I found a second BMW mounting plate and a friend made 4 little brackets (I didn't want to drill the HT rack) to bolt a trimmed down cutting board (white object in the pictures) to the HT rack. I then mounted the BMW bracket to the cutting board. It works well, and the BMW bracket comes off with four simple bolts so my MotoFizz bag can fit on the rack for off road touring. Here's a few pictures:

Mounted BMW plate

Well I've always wanted a cafe bike. So I decided to play with my first bike and change it up a bit.



New bars, repositioned the cables, and pulled off the front fender. Tomorrow the seat will come off as well as the rear fender. Then the bike will go to my work so I can make a seat pan and front fender. I also have to figure out what stainless pipe to order so I can make a complete new exhaust from scratch. Header flange is being water jet cut this week. I can't wait to get more parts.

Lorne and I went down past Salem to pick this up. And I have been primping
and changing oils and other fluids. Trying to make it more mine[lower].



Kinda polished the end thing also.



Took the dang stock cap off the tank and stuck this billet one on to make it easer to open.



All done, now just waiting for the week end warriors to go home.

Picked up the skid~plate and heat shield.



Had to make some spacers for the back.

Well now lets see, Dork! I must be as I am on this Mac instead of the bike, ass are you.

The only thing I shined was the exhaust tip. The rest of the bike is as it was, cept for some AJing.
And every thing is for sale if you have enough money.

And I don't have any idea where there is a "Ladies Knitting Circle". I take it you do.

Think I will ride it once and see how bad it kicks my ars before I torch it.

Navigation prep

I've been installing a road book holder on my yamaha. It took a few vertions before I was happy with the placement. I'll be doing a navication class next month. I hope I don't enjoy it too much, rally racing can be an expencive hobby






I used the drive motor from an electric screw driver to convert this road book holder from manual to power.
If you ever have to by a road book holder don't buy the Acerbis one, it took a lot of mods to get it work at all.

I got no pictures but i got to play in the rain today while mounting new front and rear rubber on my DR 650. I went with a kenda 270 for the rear and a Michelin 63 on the front. I am trying to get more than 2000 miles out of a tire, we'll see. I am in prep mode for a little riding over the long weekend over in Cliffdell, and next months adventure to Southern Idaho. I will add more pics tomorrow as i am going to enjoy the liquid sunshine tomorrow as i have an oil change and sub fender eliminator kit with a drz 250 taillight from Jeff at Procycle, I love those guys!! Keep on working guys riding season is "afoot"

No kidding!,, I'd ride that bike with the intent of really punishing it,,then read the reports from my hospital bed!
any dirty type bike that clean should still be on the showroom floor,, it would look so naturally much better all muddy,,and probbly add six hunnert dollars to the price! proof it works!
