    So, there is alot of other threads about certain bikes going on right now. I thought it'd be interesting to take a look at everyone's Little Beemer shots. I'll start:

    Here's my little beast, an F650 GS Dakar like BMW should have made it in the first place imho:

    Since these pictures I rerouted the front brake hose, shortened the gearing (15x49), removed the mirrors and removed the RAM mount on the left hand side.

    To be done:

    remove ABS (not sure about it yet)
    higher seat
    replace sump guard with an aluminium one
    tilt over IMO and relocate windscreen so I can read the IMO while standing
    fit a techlusion
    ride and ride and ride...

    Took it while on relatively short ride last fall to the Snake River in Southwestern Idaho. Much more of the river and the Owyhees was in the original 1MB pic but I cropped it down. This is my first attempt to post a pic to this forum so I hope it works.

    And here's the latest Bill McAvan bash plate....works GOOD, too.

    [​IMG]

    No doubt you'll see a few things from Touratech and Brad Breen bolted on.

    [​IMG]

    And there's more to come....Bill McAvan has designed a nice 1.5 gal aux fuel tank for the starboard side with a similar tool storage container for the port side. Pics of that coming later.....or contact Bill, I think he's got some.

    Too bad you live on the other side of the ocean. :freaky It does get taken offroad, although not as often as I would want to.

    Greetings.
    Yesterday after work I dug out a small parking lot while the landlord was away on work duties. Last 24 hrs we had over 50cm of snow. Good thing it's around 4 to 6 minus Centigrade. Gives traction and exciting rides! :1drink

    best regards

    I no longer have the Cee Bailey's screen or dorky HB guards - the bike has significantly more character from multiple drops on my travels.

    Okay, I'll play: Trail Ridge Road last fall. The wooden pole to the left is used as a guide by snow plows. Yep, the snow gets that deep up in Rocky Mountain N.P...:eek1
