Thanks, David! More progress on the F800GS... I change the lower, outer bevel from a 3" cutaway to a 2". I'm still tweaking things as I go trying to improve the quality and overall look of things. I bend a 45 for the exhaust cut-out and check for fit... That should look quite decent. Me likey! ...and I try to make little improvements each and every time. This time around I upgrade what I have been using for mounts... ...and I ordered a "puck" mounting kit for 5/8" tube from Happy Trails. It's a quality set up for a decent price. Until I have the ability to machine my own, this is what I will use. This is a nice upgrade. I should be able to fire up the TIG tomorrow. Working 6) 12 hours days this week is kicking my butt! I've been trying to slip into the garage for at least two hours each evening, but I'm regretting it when the alarm clock goes off!
