I love these bags. Anyone know someone who has a set for sale or may want to trade for used Jessies?
Bmw 1150 GS special 2001 110000 km
Snöåbruk Dalarna Sweden 2010 may, small rain. Ground frost 60-100 cm down = the surface layer above
the frozen ground is muddy and messy seriously, the topsurfac
layer a bit more stable. A magical time windows once a year,
10-30 hours before the frost thaws and releases water and the
roads dry up. During the 70-80 km / h, it is not possible to drive
on these roads this time and with 240 kg motorcycle maybe
100 km / h minimum speed.
Watch and enjoy the moments when I can run freely without
slow vehicles in front.

Can't wait to see how sleazy it looks with some mud.
Recently got carried away during winter downtime...
Well, Chipprob, that's some nice work there. Next winter you have to black out the rims and forks then you'll be done. I like the looks of that K60 on the rear there--looks like a super deep tread.
The GSA legend comes true on seaside offroads
if the picture comes out this is my (now gone )soon to be replaced in a day or two
Thanks for the kind words, I'm excited to try the K60's for a bit. Since I do have a complete second set of rims that is exactly the plan to rebuild them in black. My spare front is damaged, so I'm going go with 21" for that set.
Now that it is together my mechanic thought it would be a good idea to have a spare final drive. So i am watching for one and swing arm to powder coat, would be a nice finishing touch.
Replacing the bearing and seal is simple, no need for a spare FD (and a second-hand one might need a bearing anyway).
Powder coating the final drive unit would be difficult as there are a lot of surfaces that need to be kept free of the coating.
I love it! Nice job.
SWEET BIKE! Next to that Williams paint job I think black is ,for me, the best looking. Black on black just looks awesome as hell.
I'm loving how the 1150's look, I thought I wanted a 1200, after stumbling on this thread you guys changed my mind. I prefer to work on my own stuff, it's an escape for me, a sense of pride too, knowing that I can keep my equipment running without spending a fortune.
My wife keeps bugging me to get a touring bike, I said, "It is a touring bike, for any damn place you can think of to go!"
@ A. T. T-W, I LOVE what you have done with the bike.
I guess the gearbox and shaft housing can be powdercoated, and you are right about the FD, it is best to paint it, only if not dismantled and then powdercoated...
Thanks. It's a 2004 bike that I've owned from new.
The problem with powder-coating the FD (even when disassembled) is that there are surfaces that need to be free of the coating to ensure the correct tolerances. Like the original finish, that would have to be removed and that's what leads to corrosion: cutting back the coating leaves an edge where moisture creeps under the coating and works its evil unseen until it breaks-out.
That's why the fork bridges burst-out into scabs of oxidisation (when the original one on my bike was replaced under warranty, I took the replacement, stripped it and painted it before it was fitted). It has never suffered the usual corrosion as a result.
here is mine:

Ahhh...Cappadocia! Reminds me of a trip my wife and I took and stayed in Goreme at the Halil Pension. What a facinating place!
