Martyn was spot on. Its a bagster cover and they make tank bags to fit.

This is my everyday ride so i don't have any very flash photos, but here's a couple I took this afternoon. I put one in of the build to show the frame changes and a bit of the underbody. It has been about a four year project but I can only do stuff that takes more than two days when i have holidays. When i started I didn't know squat about wrenching or engineering but I have learned A LOT on the way. Folks on this board gave directions provided info and pointed the way, and blokes like Patrick from Germany tweaked my conscience to do better. He reckoned my welding looked "country style" so I looked, realised he was right and did it again. Some of the bits have been done four times over. My wife reckons I'm a bit of a pernickety bastard.

Still a bit to go. I have to remake a new stainless mount for the shorty muffler and I am considering a different mechanism for attaching the shock absorber reservoir (it normally goes on the passenger peg bracket.)

I heard some fellers the other day talking in the office about the new model that BMW had released. They were opining that it was a foray into the street machine/monster market and was clearly aimed at the likes of Ducati. I was pissing myself laughing. When i told them that it was my bike and it was 12 years old they thought I was having a go. I still think that at its basic level it is the loveliest roadster that BMW has made in a very long times. The newer designs look "wimpy" to me but that is of course a very subjective opinion.

(everything is painted to match now and the subframe was powder coated, the underbody parts were fabricated in 3mm kydex,)

It has been a blast, although sometimes I have wanted to tear my hair out.

I think I saw you riding last week. Monday morning around 09:30 on the end of the A9, just before the intersection with the A2.
Recognised the fairing & remember telling my gf about it. :D

Yes it was me, on my way to Denmark to attend the FIM-Rally.
My GPS stopped working between Bremen and Hamburg, but I knew the route.
I had rain until just above Hamburg.
Arrived in Bredebro just before 19:00h.
It had been dry there fore some days.
On my way back on saturday 24th dry all the way till Muiden.
Due to some trafficjams (again) I was back home at around 19:00h.

Finally rolling with my new (older) 2003 R1150R with 7500mi and in showroom condition. Coming out of an 870lb Harley Ultra Classic, the R1150R is exactly what I had been looking to downsize into. w/o bags she's a light and nimble road bike, and with the bags locked on a great light and nimble weekend road bike. I couldn't be happier. :mrgreen:

My R1100GS. It is a 1997 bike that has covered 106K. It has RT alloys which improve the handling and lower the bike slightly. It also has an Adventure 30 litre tank with baglux cover on it.

2nd r1150r, new to me

I sold the exact same bike in 2005 to buy a Harley. Never should have sold it.

Same year, model, color, dealer...... ABS is the only difference
