    GREAT PICTURES!!!!!




    just got a call from insurance yesterday and they totaled the HP2 - I am really bummed after all the work I put into getting the bike and fixing it up.
    Luckily I have a bunch of pictures of it when it was finished.

    more later

    Does anybody have one of these they are not using, or perhaps are using but not to its potential and want to part with it?

    Damn shame about your HP2.

    I am tossing around the idea of selling mine because of work hours and a work location move.

    For what it's worth, Sno Dawg, I could work with my local shop to change the estimate so it was just borderline not-totaled. If it does get totaled, make sure you can get the salvage bike back after insurance sells it...

    I am working on that right now. I have to find out what the buyback is from them.

    That sucks.big time.
    I learnt recently to not get emotionally attached to a vehicle.
    There are instructions that if my 1150GS gets damaged to get it to a safe place and not involve insurance.
    Its pretty and hardly any farkkes but it is al mine and had it since 2005.

    Good luck owning an HP2 and not getting emotionally attached to it.

    I'm old and have had a lot of motorcycles in my life and the HP2 stands alone as my favorite bike ever.

    I STARTED MY BIKE AND SHE WAS PUKING OUT FUEL. FOUND THE FUEL LINES WERE HARD AS A A WHORES HEAR AND CRACKED. REPLACED THEM. DECIDED TO INSTALL A SECOND SET OF CLEAR WATERS INSTEAD OF THE PIAA'S ON THE BEAK, AND A NEW K+N FILTER, AND REPLACE ALL 8 YEAR OLD ZIP TIES AND CLEAN EVERYTHING UNDER THE FUEL TANK.

    Certainly will — going all the way to Argentina! Great to have the bike that was the second post of this thread and ride it on page 311... :D

    If I do another one, which I will, I think I will go black frame and bolt ons, yellow plastics. I do love the bumblebee F800GS.

    When you rebuilt this I assume the lines were changed then correct? I'm wondering if it is worth checking my own. Thx.
