    I thought I posted it the last time, but the F800R dashboard plate is very identical to the 3d printed version you have. Here is the part diagram from max bmw. I don't see a part # for it, but it's probably easy to source from wrecked bikes. [​IMG]

    Super-happy with how she turned out! Some detailing to be done in the future but pretty much done for now!

    Excellent! Well done Wipe-out. You had a plan and you kept to it. I really like the white frame and red swing arm.

    Thanks guys. Have a 10k trip planned through Northern Europe this year, should be a proper ride. And I will make sure to give it a good run-in before. It won't stay this nice and clean!

    Best looking F800GS that I've ever seen. Easily.

    No I haven't. The only one I know who's done that is Fin (check out his build thread), but he's been quiet for some time now.

    Awesome. I love my 800, its a great bike but BMW should look at doing something like this.

    Upgrade suspension, 10more horses, more dirt orientated stylingÂ…. I'd upgrade in a heartbeat. Oh and cruise control :) That would be my dream bike.

    Maybe his bike overheated and exploded then :rofl

    Anyway... I agree with villho, it's the best looking F800GS ever. It beats even the Twalcom bike IMHO.

    Many thanks, glad you like the build, as much as I'd like I can't take that credit as I had to get help to get it done.

    Doubt that, Fin is building the Chuck Norris version of our bike :evil Check out his thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1030354

    Thanks for your comments!
