    That is a difficult question to answer cos it seems no one has anything available in NA yet!!! Grrr.... But I had the BMs crash bars originally on order. I like the Hepcos but I'm not sure if they'll fit with the BM bash plate. The other proven option that fits with the BM bash plate is the Givi. Oh well only time will tell which.

    So sweet! Thank you and God bless (said the man dying of thirst to the water-giver). :strum Nice to see the bike used for its intended purpose - getting out there and back! Love the artsy foto with the nice composition and sun glinting off the mirror.

    I'm intensely curious about the F800GS. Any of you lucky owners with the great pics care to give your poorer cousins across the pond any reviews on your bikes? :ear

    Here are first-day pix of my 650GS Twin, on the dealer lot before lift-off on June 30.

    Views with maybe a twist:

    Love this bike. But it's still kinda naked because I'll have to wait till next spring to begin the dress-up. I'll be away all winter, leaving end of September. I'm conserving cash for the trip and will simply have to wait to personalize my machine.

    Great looking bikes. Thanks for posting those.

    Anybody fit some real tires and get one muddy yet? I'm curious how they hold up to more aggressive off-road.
