Friday I put a deposit down on a 08 GS-A. My first BMW/dualsport/non sportsbike. Plan is to pick it up in the next couple of weeks. From Gateway BMW.

Going to put TK80's on in the spring and am looking at an a different wind screen of some type and also some better hand guards.
That about it.
Went on a 20 mile round trip to nowhere. It's been months since I've ridden but a tiny ride like that makes all the adventure come rushing back.
Edited for spelling.
I did that last Saturday in 28 degree weather. Sure felt good! I am having shoulder surgery in 2 days from a October dual sport crash on my KTM. I only have 350 miles on my 2017 r1200GSA triple black. I plan on hitting rehab hard to remedy the lack of mileage. Hopefully I can keep these 2 wheels on the road.
Mine's next week, hurts to ride. That's gotta go!

From 3 degrees Saturday to 78 today, had to do a short ride dark. Could get loose early from work, but still managed about 25 miles of dirt and sand....
added some bags that fit the ammo box panniers
Sexy looking silencer peeking out!
Panniers look even sturdier than OEM. Well done
Today I installed a much needed voltmeter. My battery is not very healthy so I want to keep an eye on it.
As you can see it reads 12.5V with ignition on. It now starts easily (rebuilt starter) but it is not charging completely. If problem persists I´ll take the battery out for a slow hi amp charge.
Also solved a small mystery: a self resetting clock. I turns out the culprit was not the battery, but a blown fuse. I think a blown fuse is the best bad news you can have about our bikes!
I rebuilt both TPMS sensors. New batteries and all sealed up. Using the help threads here I ordered the correct batteries with leads.
The whole job took about 3 hours. Most of that was fighting the tubeless tires. Big 6 inch C-Clamps help a bunch.
It was nice to see both wheels showing the same pressure. I put 39.5 psi in both and they both showed 37 psi on the info panel. Being unfamiliar with the BMW TPMS I didn't take notice in the past the front was noticeably lower than the pressure in the tire. That was a heads up indicator the battery was coming due. Since the bike has almost 58K on the clock, I don't expect to do this job again.
Never heard of a slow high amp charge, :)
Good luck with the surgery. Had mine done over Christmas. Hope to be back on the bike by April. It will be tempting

Fitted these awesome Pannier Trunkz from Andy Strapz today.
To try and fill them up, I placed a set of wet weather pants, jacket and full size towel in EACH one and there's still room !!
