almost a month now, and here's what Ive done. Calsci windscreen (GREAT screen, btw. wind goes up just over the top of the helmet. If I put my hand above the screen and follow the breeze back it's perfect! No buffeting even with an open face); SW Motech engine guards, footpegs and brackets - also excellent, imho.; BMW hard bags - what can I say, BMW engineered them; pigtail plug to wire up my TomTom gps - snap to install and works perfectly; and Hornig rear fender hugger. An interesting piece. Once I interpreted the "interpreted" instructions from Germlish and found that a U-Slice is a mangled interpretation of "washer"... all was well. Don't know if anyone has this - so posting photos. Easy install - two bolts.

Now... lights and a soft top bag and I gotta quit for a while!

I like that rear huger better then the "carbon fiber" is out there.
Can you share the link to buy it.

Thanks

post pics of the other mods, or whole bike please!! thanks.
:D Everybody knows what the cases look like - but here's the screen and the crash bars. kinda hard to get a shot of the GPS hookup but it looks factory - plugs into the front auxiliarry jack on the bike. came from TouraTech.

the shot of bikes (blue one is my son's SV650) was taken at a joint called Cherry Pocket Steak & Seafood Shack on the shores of beautiful Lake Pierce in middle-of-nowhere Florida - we got there early or the lot would have been full of bikes. :cool:

Hey, Hoshiko. I got it from A&S BMW. They don't stock it, but ordered it for me from Hornig, which was cheaper than buying it direct and having it shipped from Germany. Arrived pretty quickly - less than 2 weeks. They advertise it as "in primer" but it has a gloss black finish as you see. Frankly I was not that impressed with the paint job, but the size and shape of the thing I think will provide better blockage of water and road gunk. Nobody can see it under the BMW side cases anyway. I think the Puig is probably better finished but looked too short to me. Hornig sells others, too.

Leo Vince

Well, another whole month has gone by and the only new mod is the Leo Vince pipe... Photo posted somewhere else here as I recall...

Anyway, I'm off for a "re-repair" of the fuel strip on Saturday. Great gas mileage! Guage has been on dead empty for the past 500 miles or so! :eek:

Next mod is probably going to be bar risers. I just can't bring myself to pay the $100-200 for the risers, another $100 for a longer brake cable, and probably another $100 to have the brake cable installed. All for a mod that "might" help make the upper back a little more comfy on long rides.

later

Bob
