    Since fall colors seem to be the theme at the moment I'll add a few of my own.

    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...

    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.

    All good,

    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.

    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.
