    With only 41 posts over 5 days it needs a bit more girth. AND it isn't the only 1100 GS thread of this type.

    As for an 1150 only thread they also exist. Seek and you'll find.

    That's just what i ment (sorry for my dutchlish)

    There are lots of loose threads lying around, so every once in a wile someone starts another...

    Its something like the garage catch22, if its hard to be found in the overwhelming traffic of our ever expanding adventurerideruniverse, it will eventually get lost, and started over again...

    Thats why i thought of a sticky, so you'll get a broad sammelsorium of one specific bike, were one can get inspration for own projects, especcially with so much dull standard bike riding around and around the world ;-)

    Perhaps i'm to much of an organiser, but i think it would evenly have a efficiency bonus for the moderators, less need for threadfests mergers, don't you think so?

    Sweet looking GS. Did you just paint the lid and bottom of the Zegas or is that some special coating? I really like the looks of the panniers.

    I actually taped off the area at the bottom, and lids, and sprayed them in 3M Rubberized Undercoating, and then clear coated them with rattle can. I do a touch up every now and then. I thought it would make the boxes look a tad smaller....... Along with the sticker collection.:lol3 :wink:
    Like I did here with the bags for my GSPD.....................
