    Found this bike sitting in the parking area upon arriving at Bonneville last week. Just so happens it belonged to Tim of Happy Trails. Nice guy with a sweet set of bags and accesssories already in the works.

    What bashplate is that? After hearing the BMW one has 60 on back order in Oz, and 600 in the states, I'm considering my options.

    Not sure what's what on the new bike other than this was the owner of Happy Trails who had this bike tricked out with prototype bits. Check their web site and see if they have the goods listed. I can say the bike looks the part and will certainly be a nice sized machine for off road work and dual sport activities. He said the things gets almost 50 MPG new and runs smooth. All good news for those considering one.

    It's the BMW bashplate with the Touratech engine guard tool box mounted up front.
