    Got a few spares for sale. All of them came of my 2006 r1200gs. I have the top box for sale, cosmetically it's a bit rough been scratched a lot but perfectly usable £100. Also I have the right side pannier for sale it's in very good condition £120. Then I have a refurbished final drive. It is for the abs models as it has the 15mm speed sensor. Bought this as a spare in case I had fd failure on the original but never had to use it. It has the revised steel wheel flange fitted £200. Then I have a garmin nuvi 500 deluxe. Works great just don't have the ram mount anymore £45. Would prefer collection but can post, postal prices on request cheers.

          Petite balade un samedi matin par -12°C

          Voici les photos que j'ai sélectionné. La nouvelle chaine easy grip, c'est bien. Le Michelin Anakee Wild à l'AR, c'est bien. A l'AV, je n'ai pas testé mais celui que j'avais c'est bien. Ces 2 montes sont mieux que le TKC80 pour la neige. LE TKC80, c'était bien mais le Michelin, c'est mieux. LA roue AV d'une autre marque, je n'en veux plus, car trop chère, trop bruyant et il semble fondre comme neige au soleil.

          Une montée sans ski et sans chaine parce que j'avais envie et surtout les conditions le permettaient.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtfBaXyv0y0&featur e=youtu.be

          Sur la première minute 30 secondes, on mets un peu de son (bah oui, il faut entendre le moteur), on s'assis bien sur sa chaise et on tient l'écran, ça va bouger un peu et ça glisse. !!!

          Pour le reste, j'ai laissé si certains ont envie de se faire ça au coin du feu.

            �BMWworldstickers.com

            Item Description

            The decals are printed using only original HP Latex inks, insuring deep color and perfect quality image. Only highest quality outdoor vinyl is used from the world’s leaders ORACAL . All of our products are printed on a weatherproof vinyl + laminated (protective clear layer). They are 9 laminated pieces and ready to be applied .

            For the white GS , we offer the letters all in black. Although we could adapt the colour letters to your style for any colour GS.

            Made in Spain.

            �Laminating

            Lamination is very important when the decals are to be used in an outdoor environment which will not fade or become matted stickers . The finish produces a high gloss laminating vinyl by the brand ORACAL . Here are some of the advantages of the laminated decals:

            * Scratch and friction protection which will add durability and strength in very frequent use areas as side tank or tank bag area .

            * UV protection – fading from the sun is not possible.

            * Water, fuel, chemicals and cleaning fluids .

            * Professional finish – added gloss and thickness .

            * Ideal for curved and corrugated surface.

            �Total number of decals: 9

            �Applying

            All the decals must be applied on a flat and clear surface, free from dust, oils, chemicals and dirt so make sure the surface is clean and flat enough.

            Large pieces will recommend installation by warping professional.

            �Packaging and Shipping

            We pack our decals in hard tube cartoon containers.

            * We post on the same or the next working day if availability of the product . We try our best to keep up with the demand . The items are shipped from SPAIN or UK, so shipping times may vary. We only use Track and signed services, so usually the shipping time is 10-12 working days to EU and around 15-20 working days to the rest of the world . However by reasons that we cannot manage, sometimes the package can be delayed by post offices, due to busy periods, weather conditions, holidays.

            * BMWworldstickers is in no way responsible for any delays in shipping including local delivery errors or international customs issues.

                Trying to stop condensation saga continues.

                I have been recently sorting out the electric supply to my bike shed so that I can purchase a 'bike bubble' which is now done.

                Whilst I get the funds for the Bubble I am trying to reduce the condensation on the bike.

                I have lined the shed floor with damp proof membrane and then a wood floor. I have also lined the metal walls with a few layers of foil Bubble wrap (not sure how much good that's done).

                I have tried today to put on a fan with a timer, set to go on for 15 mins and off for 45 mins.

                Does anyone else have such issues and have any extra tips for sorting out the damp or do the same with a little fan to warm/move some air?

                Cheers

                  to whom it may concern, technical update for the 6 Nations Raid BMW: the Hotel in Tirana moves from the 3*** previously booked to the 4**** Hotel Kastria by our friend Elton Myftiu. We stopped in this hotel in several of the 9 previous editions, and we managed to have enough free rooms for us in May 2017. It's rather good to book with great advance anyway. Faliminderit (= thanks, in albanian language). All the pics of every-day hotel are on the fb page of the event, in the photo/albums section. Furthermore, I hope (but I can't assure You) the Staff will increase by another official BMW ITA Tourguide, I hope will have time for us!

                    Hi I hope I'm not breaking any rules by saying about a recent experience on buying a new helmet.

                    I spent days shopping around looking for the best deal on a Schuberth C3 Pro. I asked some of the big boys to price match but none of them would and I thought I was getting a good deal until I came across Just Helmets. The guy who I spoke to was fantastic he gave some great advice even offering to fit the SRC at no extra charge. He was able to beat all the big names shops by over £100.

                    I do not represent this company or know anyone who works in it but to find deals like this I believe we should be passing onto our fellow bikers.

                      Hope no one minds me putting this here but I'm having an open day to chat about my tours to the US this year as well as answering any questions anyone may have about touring in the USA and Canada. I've got a classic Coast to Coast USA in June then a brilliant Alaska trip in July 2017 with details at www.unchainedtours.com

                      It's my 7th year of doing it so can answer most questions! It's also a great day out to shake off those winter blues and have a blather over a coffee and bowl of hot Chili.

                      The date will be Saturday 4th February 2017 and the details are as follows:

                      Adventure Bike Warehouse

                      Unit 5 Agecroft Enterprise Park

                      Swinton

                      Manchester

                      M27 8W

                      I plan to start the presentation at 2.00pm and it will cover all our trips this summer as well as any other questions anyone may have about touring in North America.

                      Gary from ABW will knock up one of his infamous Chili's for the occasion and will have a wide range of adventure bike equipment and clothing on display so bring your credit cards.

                      Anyone is welcome to come to this and listen to me woffle on for a couple of hours about riding in the USA. It's a great way to clear away the winter blues and to have a good chat with like minded folk. If you are interested in a trip in the future or just want to know about riding in North America come along and I'll be able to answer any questions you might have

                        Right then chaps and chappettes, I hope that wherever you are you had a great Christmas and that the new year is both prosperous and full of miles of riding.

                        Just out of interest, has anyone been to Nordkapp? I'm planning to go in 2017 or if time is limited then 2018. Any advice on time of the year to avoid, tips on routes or recommendations on places to visit on route will be gratefully received. If anyone fancies joining us on the trip, either for the whole thing or just tag along for part of it, let me know.

                            I'm thinking about Hungary and Romania for a September tour from Scotland. We like long days on the bike and mountain passes and scenery. Not so big on city visits. Good hotels with nice food, secure parking and Wi-Fi. A pool or wellness suite is also a real winner for us. Any advice on places to stay. Pic was Noordkapp last year...

                                G day All. My gal and I are shipping the bike over from Down Under in 2019 — BMW GS EUROPE

                                G'day All. My gal and I are shipping the bike over from Down Under in 2019. Intend doing around 5 to 6 months of touring. When looking at a map, say of Spain, for the Pyrenees region, where the route is marked N-260, is this actually sign posted on the roads. We intend doing as many of the great bike routes there are. From the bottom of Spain, to the top of Norway, in a very zig zag fashion, going as far across as Turkey. Appreciate any advice.
