    And it was never really Triple Black anyway, it was 2 shades of gray powder coat with black plastic.

    On the way home from a meeting last night I observed a car coming my way with it's high-beams on. I had to wait for the car in front of it to clear, but as soon as it did I gave the driver the full brunt of my D4's for about a second. :evil I did feel a little sorry for the driver of the pickup in front of me though.

    I moved my radar detector external speaker to a position I can now hear it when it alerts. I cut my damn finger with a new box cutter blade (with a new blade) in the process, probly needed stitches, I'll let the wife look at it when she gets home, she's a nurse. I'm on blood thinner and aspirin too, I bleed like a stuck pig, well I'm fat like one too.

    My favorite bandages, paper towel and electrical tape. Also side cutters are your friend if possible. Resist the urge of using sharp objects

    So am I the only one that has never really totally liked ANY colour BMW has done since the R90S?

    My last 4 BMW’s colours have been determined on the colour that I hated least.

    Probably... :D

    My last 3 GSAs were all white and that's what I liked and had choice as I got them new. My other two donkees were bought used and not in my preferred color but had a body-buddy whose I-Owe-You I cashed out and painted other donkees as I felt like it... Paint is cheap and there's not all that much to paint on GS/A so go for it - make it yours!! :deal

    I agree. I think my new 1250 is ugly. I'm either going to paint it or wrap it and make it a triple black 1250gsa.

    Put a new rear tire on my Triple Back.
    My TB loves the Mitas E07+.
    I will put it back on my TB tomorrow.

    Not on the GS, but for it:
    Finally assembled the Klim helmet I painted a few weeks ago, before vacation.

    Needs a little trim clean-up, but the shine is impressive!

    The $7 led turn signal bulbs from super bright leds are too long.
    First time I bought from them.I’ll measure next Time.
    The bulbs look great ,it’s just that the lense won’t go on.

    That’s way better for conspicuity than $1200 Clearwaters and the fuzz won’t harass you as well!
