For the moment ....
Out after a fall ride. Looking good.
Nothing to see here. Move along.
asked the same question in the pics section, but I think you'll be more up here:
Another fall ride...
Since fall colors seem to be the theme at the moment I'll add a few of my own.
Out riding with a buddy on some great dirt roads.
beautiful..I miss that foliage living in an Evergreen/rain forest!
What do you mean?
From last year. There's a tiny bit of yellow and orange...doesn't really compare does it?
Actually this year is more colourful than usual...but still not really comparable...
Dave your skid plate looks great with my new crash bars....
My 2009 F8 had taken a few dirt naps and was needing a bit of TLC. For it's 40k birthday I gave it a much needed face lift and made a few new parts while I was at it.
Even with the protective film, the plastic fairings took a hammering from the sharp Central Otago landscape.
I bit of plastic welding and some body fairing putty and she came up looking pretty good I recon.
As the two parts to this fairing are of different plastic molding I decided to use separate Matte and Satin paints to define the difference.
I loved the original color but wanted to do something a bit different from the crowd. I looked a heaps of color schemes and finally went back to my first idea. So using a splash of the the original Sunset Yellow I came up with this.
The clear plastic wind screen was pretty scratched and need attention too. I reproduced it in Carbon Fiber and tried this "chopped" size on for size.
The original Bash plate weighed a tonne and I decided to lighten the load a bit by building a replica in Carbon/Kevlar. It took a few goes but I like the final result.
A friend at a local sign shop reproduced the decals and custom made a couple of new BMW roundels as well. The decal placement decision was very last minute.
Next project is to make a couple crank out a couple of new knuckle guards. I've seen some great idea here on the ADV site so I'll add photo's of the finished project.
Time to ride.
Within a week of finishing this project I read online that BMW was going to release a Triple Black version of the F800 GS. I was gutted as I thought I would have the only one. Still, I like the result and hope others do too.
looks great! You did a really nice thing for your 40,000 old Beemer!
Turned 60,000 on the clocks this past week so I think another splash of TLC is in order. Maybe I'll go all out and drop some coin on a set of new TKC's. That would put a smile on it's dials for sure.
What do ya recon?
That looks awesome Dave!
I have done some Moto-Gymkhana today:
Awesome day! It seems I'm settling into the 800 quickly. It's still a heavy bike coming from my dirt bikes, but damn this bike does it all.
Oh yeah! 2 wheels!
Last day before winter arrived in Calgary.
Rode hard and put away dirty...
