    After 10 years, I parted ways with the Blue Fire Pterodactyl Phoenix bike this afternoon... A young man who rode to D2D on a borrowed 1100GS, spent the day in my shop as we did a complete service on it including a valve adjustment thanks to Chip Sterbenz teaching Skyler the proper way. After he chose which farkles to keep on it, he drove away a happy man. I will soon be having an 1150GS garage sale for spare parts and farkles that he passed on... 2017 Rallye is calling my name - Dapman... Dapman... buy me... Dapman...

    Are any of your seats the BMW red or maroon? My are very faded and the red is no longer available. I am also interested in the top box.

    Alan, I have a nearly new (on my GSA for less than 2000 miles) set of BMW OEM aluminum panniers with mounting racks and hardware that will fit your Rally. I'll make you a deal you can't refuse. PM if interested.

    Brad, the box was purchased from TMS without mounting hardware... I thru bolted it to a plate that was mounted to my tail piece. I used bolts thru rubber grommets to stop leaks and it worked extremely well. I will take pics, PM me your email address. The box is powder coated black and comes with lock and key...
