I do. You can have silver, if you don't like black. Job done.

You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

My old bike. . . I covered about 42k of those miles. Very happy to see it in good hands and looking amazing! I knew it needed to go because I couldn't bring it back to life in the way you have.

Nice work. The paint scheme is elegantly tasteful, and the Boxertrix stickers a fine and subtle addition 8)

Cheers,

Thanks!

new R1200s stickers on tail piece - bit smaller than originals. From a guy in Malaysia on ebay!

I hope you enjoy it and find it interesting

I just read your blog, it is very informative and inspiring!, thanks for posting. I have just bought an R1220S with the inverse of your colour scheme and I'm keen to try some of your other improvements after seeing your blog. Your bike looks fantastic, by the way.

If something is worth doing, its worth doing to excess.
