    En. Jinx ~

    Hey, sweet! What an awesome bike! But I can only imagine how much that thing must've cost you in Malaysia. Went to a BMW bike shop in KL to check things out a couple years ago and your plain Jane vanilla GS was almost USD 30k! :deal Geeyawd! Can only imagine what an Adventure must cost...

    Is the road tax high on it?

    See you got the EU spec LED brake and turn signals, too. Am seriously jealous here! :bow

    You definitely live in a great place to ride. Just be careful of those crazy cagers and suicidal mat rempit...

    Jim, lane splitting in Malaysia (like a lot of SE Asian places) takes on a whole new meaning (and is certainly not limited to "lanes"). Will be challenging enough wrestling the big GS through those gridlocked cars (even if they're half its size). Couldn't imagine doing it with side cases on the bike...

    Oh, and Hotspice, the sticker on the front is the bike registration number (the "P" is for Penang, where the bike's registered). In Malaysia, they require you to have the number on the front and back. But many guys are a little liberal about where they apply them.

    Take care & ride safe,

    ~ Steve

    Wouldn't mind the Fedex guy dropping a box like that on my doorstep:D . Is there a "new bike" smell in there?

    Thank U guys! :thumb eh I thought Red is the fastest?

    Hi Jim - I yet to decide, high likely I'll go for adventure panniers. For time being, I'm settling down with my Ortlieb duffle bag :wings

    It's my regn no#....btw, I've put on the "illegal" type kindda sticker. It's smaller, its silver in colour instead of white and on 3M carbon sticker as base and all those NOT as per the law :evil

    Apa khabar Steve! :D

    The bike does cost me my years of savings BUT I'm taking it rewarding myself as working like lembu (cow) for many many years....

    I'm hoping to clock some mileage soon

    Btw, where do U base now? Or U have been working here in Malaysia before?


    And GS Adventure only cost us an additional RM8K (USD$2.3K).... and with added 40kg of weight :eek1

    That will be a nightmare.... LOL :thumb

    It was in my Santa wish list but Santa never send me any for many many Christmas....:cry

    She smell woody.... :wink: many due to many weeks being caged in that wooden box.....

    Thanks :thumb

    SBW,
    Very cool looking machine.

    Q1: How much did the black wheels cost?
    Q2: Did you buy them from the dealer?
    Q3: Do you want to sell your original aluminium spoked wheels?

    I am just below you in Qld. Australia. I do like the black ones though they would look nice on my 08 Namibia Orange GS.

    Cheers

    Beautiful bike, I really like the Alpine white bikes.

    Of course they are a lot slower than the red ones, but don't let that get you down. :lol3

    Itu adalah sebuah sepeda motor INDAH.

    Saya berharap anda yang JUTA bahagia dan tidak masalah batu di atasnya, dan NO pertemuan menakutkan dengan mereka van penghantaran yang anda lihat di mana-mana :-)

    And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

    Thank U fellow ADVriders! :thumb

    Hi Rob

    Q1 : It cost approx USD$2700 for a pair without disc rotors/RDC sensors

    Q2 : Yes, a local Wunderlich dealer managed to get it for me through his contacts
    Q3 : Yes, I'm selling my brand new Silver spoke wheelset but I'm not too sure of the shipping charges to OZ...

    Cheers! :thumb

    Wow NBeener! I'm impressed :thumb Bunyi macam Indon saja or U could have directly translated it? :evil

    If U around M'sia, do PM me.... I'm a noob!:clap

    Looks very nice!
    I have a question though.
    After the GSA wheelset is added why not just buy the GSA to begin with?
    Price? Looks?
