    Gee, 1988 for the marlboro DR800? Do you suppose someone saw that when they created the icon designed XC? Duh, sure looks like it, don'it?

    My how our tastes have changed over the years. I'm building a 70's cafe racer and trying to figure out colors. Some labels for color schemes over the years...

    retro
    nostalgic
    dark or blackout
    chrome
    flourescent/dayglow
    matte finish
    murals, pinstripes, graphics
    pearl, metalflake, metallic, cameleon

    I started doing custom paint work about 1975. Anyone remember the 'van craze'? My favorite paints you cannot even buy anymore here in CA.


    EDIT: BTW, the vid is cute, entertaining. thumbs! "new guy"... LOL.

    I assume your joking. That was the first beak. BMW & Triumph copied Suzuki.

    I am, hence the :D at the end....

    BMW accused Triumph of stealing the idea from them when in fact, they stole it from Suzuki.

    Looks the same as the ones I got with the Triumph Radiator Guard.

    Yep, they are. Kinda pricey for what they are, must be made from some exotic material.

    Givi luggage racks and cheap plastic ammo boxes from Amazon. Top case is a Pelican 1520 with a Touratech rack under it.

    When I watched the Icon video, I really wondered how someone gets that good on a bike? Especially so young? I can only imagine killing myself in the process long before I ever got to where they are at:huh

    Didn't you realise that in BMWs corporate belief they invented absolutely everything. :rofl
    Telelever? Have a look at the 1930s Rudge.
    Duolever? Hossack.
    And on and on it goes. One thing you can credit BMW for is they do have the courage to put these things into production.

    I think the only way to get that good is to do it young.

    Yeah, I was pretty envious, too. I guess, if you have no regard for your equipment (like a stunta'), you continually keep trying stuff and finding what you can get away with or better at.
