Travel restrictiona were lifted in Scotland last weekend - naturally it pissed down the whole weekend.So took the day off yesterday and headed oot fae a spin.  My first proper run on the R1250R.
 Headed to Gourock, ferry to Dunoon.  Portavadie, ferry to Tarbert, got a good soaking on the way up to Oban (spot the weird bike parked up in Oban).  Top notch fish super from the George Street Chippe.  Up to Glencoe, doon Glen Orchy, a wee rest in Arrochar, then back down to Dunoon for the ferry back to Gourock.

Needs a hugger to stop all the shit from the back wheel ending up all over the bike. otherwise nice machine, almost the same as my R1200RS se

 I fitted a mudsling to close off the rear shock.  Yup like too many modern bikes the rear is too narrow and too short.  Yeah muck goes everywhere, and I’m told a hugger doesn’t make much difference.


Apparently, this New Zealand only OE BMW part is a possible solution.   It sits behind the indicators and license plate.

Not decided on it yet.

The trouble is, most gadgets that offer some protection to bikes, look crap. I've put off for years fitting a fender extender, as they look so awful, but after my newly resprayed bellypan looked like it had been shotgunned, after only a few rides, I had to give in. I must say that the downpipes stay much shinier for longer, so the extender is certainly doing its job. Still looks crap though :lol .
