What are these crash bars?
Are they effective in anything but a tip over?
How are they removed for doing valve work etc...?
You were travelling light compared to the 1200GS is front of you.
Yeah! Funny that. He had just a wee tip over as we were heading from Nymagee pub to the Nymagee racetrack campspot a couple of days before. A very slow fall over on the left hand side (shoulda had a RS ) and it busted his pannier clean off.
What a piece of shit!!! Shame BMW! The pannier not only broke off, it could not be mounted back on the bike and had to be strapped up on top of everything else.
The fall also caused the pannier to bend and kink the sub frame (frame?) :huh
The whole frame and pannier was replaced under insurance.
Piece of shit.
Any questions why I ride an RS?
At the same time, it was the wildest, muddiest, shittiest raining dash across from Mt.Hope pub to Nymagee. There must have been a big wet cloud sitting right on top of us for the 45? k section of dirt. Out of control, couldn't see shit.
Good fun but!
Most excellent! Love the old RS! Also, the R75/5 with knobbies rocks! If I showed a set of knobbies to my R75 I think she would freak out! I kinda baby her after the resto.
THAT is sooooo RIGHT.
Is that a heinrich tank?
I have one on a /2 & was wondering if it would fit on a 75/7
yours is a /5 it seems, may have to try it, awesome.
That's pretty much how adventure riding was done before all this GS BS............thanks for the memories!
Yes, but there may be a bit of fiddling to get clearance around the front of the seat and side covers. I had an 32 litre one (not as big as the one pictured) on my 80/7 and had to fit spacers to the top of the fork springs to compensate for the added weight of the fuel.
On a hot day, after a long ride, and with the right material that could almost be a cooking surface! Sautéed onions to go with campfire brats, yes please!
NOW your talking!!!
Brie, Hummus, a baugette and Danish beer...not quite fire roasted brat fare...but maybe some kippers and a bunch of grapes...
What hasn't been mentioned, is HOT beer.
Get the beer cold first. Then we can talk about fine fare.
Just want to say THANK YOU to all of these awesome pictures you guys are posting!!!!!
Now that's a good application for a monster charging system---running a TED cooler for the beer.
Instead of replacing the very expensive rubber knee pads, I decided to get a couple of vinyl panels fitted instead.
The R75 was at Cape York last year at the Off Centre Rally (the OCR must be at a location in OZ that has at least 200km of dirt road in, beer and fuel) The R75 did plenty of dirt roads and bent a fork tube ...I think it had a section of water pipe as a repair.
Heres a few more pix from said event
It was a 6 day ride to get there for me backing up 700k days I did the last 1000 with the local airhead crew.
I bent a rocker 70 k south of Coen (I never heard of that b4) A good mate rescued me with some tactical welding with a very short rod. F'n lucky.
Bramwell Station most northerly Cattle Station in OZ.
Nuff of the tourist stuff.
Things to ponder
Nothing catches fire. I know blokes who have wooden pot racks that rest directly on the fins - nothing burns, much. A good place to put heavy stuff like tools.
And finally one of my favorite's
An R60 cough cough
