Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

As well as painting the wheels of my R1100S I've been having some bodywork painted. This was necessary because of some damage (my fault), and I decided to use the opportunity to make the bike a little more unique.

I went with the bellypan as a colour-match, but with Boxer Cup Replika (BCR) official decals added. For the top half of the bike I went with a white "GT Stripe". Actually the BMW bodywork lends itself well to this, because the centre headlight panel is separate, as is the centre panel on the tank. The single-seat cowl and tail-light surround were masked and sprayed. Hopefully all will look good. A bit more sporty without being too overt.

Next time I ride the bike will be the first time I've used the HID lights, the MASSIVE truck horn and the new and improved bodywork.
