Hi Stephen, not riding quite so much these days and reached a point where we thought we'd finished with bikes altogether but after selling the C and my lovely F800GS we both felt something was missing from our lives and here we are today 🙂 I'll try and use the old Photobucket means of posting pics to see if it still works.Both nice bikes and with a noisy set of mufflers the Bonnie always puts a smile on my face.Take careMalcolmRichard KuystenParticipant30/06/2016 at 10:41 amPost count: 623Richard KuystenParticipant26/06/2016 at 12:08 amPost count: 623Richard KuystenParticipant25/06/2016 at 11:43 pmPost count: 623Richard KuystenParticipant21/04/2016 at 11:09 pmPost count: 623
Don't the Auckland shops offer you a loan bike? Motomart in Welly always offers me one - I'm about 20kms away I guess.
I must admit to having followed Henry since his arrival in Auckland. Experience did offer a loan bike when Seb was there but when I went to Cyclespot there was never an offer made although I didn't really require one as I was only 10mins from Barrys Point Road so Jean could pick me up. I should emphasis I have no complaints with any of the outlets but Dean at BMS can offer a flexiblilty that the others may not be in a position to do.Richard KuystenParticipant21/04/2016 at 10:53 pmPost count: 623
Hi MalcomGood to hear your still ridingYes its hard to get a sevice on a BMW these days I myself will have to do a 160km ride each way .what made u pick that area whwn u live in the Howick area.Darryl
Actually 20mins south of Howick but it's the best part of an hour to any of the three servicing options so I thought I'd give Dean a go and the good thing is he can accommodate me by doing the service when I arrive so providing it's not a major I can wait or even nip up to my old friend Noel's place for a coffee.Richard KuystenParticipant12/11/2014 at 5:22 amPost count: 623Richard KuystenParticipant27/05/2014 at 10:23 amPost count: 623
Cutting the seat is a good option. I did mine on the F800GS with an electric carving knife after drawing the shape with a felt tip. I did have to take it to an upholsterer to get the cover stapled back on as you will need three hands to do this but at $35 it was a bargin.Richard KuystenParticipant20/02/2014 at 9:33 amPost count: 623Richard KuystenParticipant20/02/2014 at 2:39 amPost count: 623
I think this may be Bill McLellan and have just spoken with him. His memory is a little blurred but he definitely owned such a machine although he can't remember the fairing being on it. He sold to Brian Barnsley and thinks it then went to Brent Mander. Bill's number (he thinks) was 87. Hope this helps.PS just in case you still can't find him you will find both him and Enid in plenty of the older (last century) AGM group photos.
