I was trying a direct upload to the site and hit a wall after one pic was posted. Direct message stating one picture upload limit. I think this was something to do with Ralph's message about cutting out bandwidth waste
I think I'll try using Photobucket instead.
Roughly, how much did that work cost? I had an idea to remove the pillion for long trips, have a plate laser cut, welded up to mount where the pillion goes. This would allow camping gear etc to be strapped to this plate say in a hotel room, walk out to the bike pop it on and away you go. I did a long trip last year where we camped some and did hotel rooms. We did something similar by strapping the camping gear to folding chairs, then bungee the chair to the bike. It saves a ton of time.
Started out with 2" raw stainless steel strap, and did not like the look, so painted it to match...

Great stuff! You do good work!
I made a new frame.
Well, I really built my own GS.
Wow, any finished pics yet?
It cost about $100 for the plate and lazer cutting. The powder coating I had done with some other stuff. But minimum charge usually for powder coating is $30 - $40?.
How about this.
I made the 50ltr Panniers: The lids come off, fold out the legs and make a perfect surface for cooking and biers.
I also made the Tank cover: I'm in the process of replacing the tank with a GS Adventure one and sometime down the road I'll make another tank cover with removable side pockets. After I scratch the paint.... Lol....
P.S. Goto "Let's see your R1100GS!!!" page to see my bike with my new Tank. <!-- #dg-breadcrumb-trail -->
