    Aha! my photobucket list!

    1, There are no lines on the glass because there is no glass. It's plastic. Those GS riders will drag their feet in the gravel and do all sorts of things to try and stop me passing. I got tired of broken headlight glasses.

    I field tested the crapper facing the other way. Roared past a road train and the vacuum lifted the lid and covered me in.....:puke1

    That's not gas in the beer, it's beer in the bike! :freaky

    The crapper fits snuggly behind the solo seat. No further mods required.
    After fitting the solo seat, I just had to come up with some 'outside the square' ideas.

    Glad you like my swimming pools. With fish.

    Now where did I leave that link to my photobucket account.............

    That one. looked like it was holding up some trees here and there too.


    Looks like the area has been prepped for a repair. How did you do that in the field?

    My brother's RS, insufficient care when crossing a creek on the way to the alpine Rally here in Aus and a rock got it!
    We fixed it with JB weld and my dessert spoon. (after cutting the handle off 'course)
    We were lucky to borrow some JB from a fellow rallyer but it was the 'slow cure' so the old RS spent a little time around the camp fire warming its belly.

    My brother is a real good bloke. He even fixed my spoon and gave it back to me.

    I meant, how did you get it all nice and clean and ready for the JB weld? I carry the stuff but maybe not the best equipment to prepare an area---get it really clean so the JB weld will stick.

    Prepped with a stainless steel pot scourer and fuel. Easy.
    The repair wept a little, but he easily made it about 400 k home.
    'JB quick' is the one to have, with a 4-5 minute set time. I used to always carry that when trail riding and repaired holed engine cases on more than a couple of occasions.

    I love the color brown that you chose to paint it. I see a lot of people with perfectly good bmw original brown strip it down and paint it black or gray or blue. I love the rich 70s brown. Is that a BMW color?

    I think it's a sort of Orangish Brown or maybe a Brownish Orange.

    I'm not a fan of cut down fenders or Chrome Plated valve covers but over all it's a nice looking bike. I hope you enjoy it and get many miles of smiles from her.

    If you aim the headlight at the road instead of the sky it'll look like the thing actually gets ridden!! :thumb

    That shade on the headlight makes it look like it's stoned. :bubba Otherwise nice work.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that caught that - great build, needs the eyelash gone though.

    Love the color.
