    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.

    Rode CO-141 for the first time today, with a few of my Goldwing friends. Awesome scenery in the red-rocks region of western Colorado.

    Scrubbed in the new Karoo streets on my favorite twisty road, and off the pavement along the border wall. These tires are definitely more 60/40 than 80/20. Love ‘em .
    Found the tunnel...... from the US thru a mountain to Mex.

    Stripped the final drive drain plug hole. So had to use a tap and fix it. It’s 12mmx1.00 for reference and had to go to a special shop to find that size because NOBODY had it.

    If you get a chance, a picture or two please. Once I find out what is keeping my turn signals from working, I'm gonna want more effective.

    Bulbs I had were for a 1200 .The Chanel for bulb was at 9 and 2.The 1150 socket is 9 and 3 so I made a slot at 2
    O’clock.The 1150 socket is plastic .A bur bit chewed it like butter.
    What bike do you have? If 1150 get 1157 bulbs?
    What do you want to see in picture?
