    If you have a Paralever, either GS or R, the Migsel side stand is likely the best choice for a replacement. IMHO, it is a quantum leap over the factory side stand integral with the crash bars.

    I agree.
    The factory side stand is a disaster waiting to happen.
    It seems BMW is excellent at building just about everything but a decient side stand.

    Old K bike side stands are the best. And they auto retract if you forget to do so before pulling in the clutch. Talk about genius design

    Left Madrid at 03:00 am yes that’s right on my way to Caen, Normandy... 850 miles (1400 km’s) by 09:30 pm arrived in Caen. Forever wanting to visit the beaches. The main goal was Omaha and Utah beaches.
    Man and machine are still in one piece. :pynd

    Bought a roached 75/6 set yesterday at a swap meet. It had a nice grab rail and the seat hinges and bolts were still there too, $20. I now have a nice grab rail..:clap IMG_0863.JPG IMG_0865.JPG

    Some more pics from the Oz Alpine Rally. On Sunday most of the riders head for home, leaving 40 or so of the hard-core mob to enjoy a quieter night. We knew that rain was predicted so prepared with some 'tarpistry':

    Woke to the expected rain on Monday morning feeling somewhat smug as we watched other poor buggers climbing out of their tents in full riding gear, including helmets, to pour their stuff into soggy bags and panniers while we enjoyed coffee, breakfast and packing in relative comfort. Here's a rain-blurred pic of my neighbour:

    We had a very foggy and wet ride down the mountain to Tumut. With more showers approaching we made use of the waiting room at the defunct railway station for a lunch break while the bikes waited stoically in the rain:

    The rain eased and we pushed on to home via Jingellic, along the Murray River and the coast of Lake Hume in a 'gentlemanly' fashion, thankful for competent gear and heated grips. And bloody good bikes.

    That was my 11th Alpine. I hope I get to do a bunch more.

    First time out on my recently acquired 88 R100RT. New tires scrubbed in, just in time for a heavy rain. The Conti Go tires are great. Needs some carb adjusting, repair the tach (stuck at 3k), and a working clock to be perfect. 20190616_133804.jpg 20190616_133755.jpg
