2007 BMW R1200GS
I bought this bike new from Lonestar BMW / Triumph Motorcycles in Austin, TX the last day of 2006. It had 9 miles on it then and will start the trip with about 48,000 miles.

Seen here at about 70mph.
I know from experience that it's going to be a wet, muddy ride. These will really help keep the calcium chloride out of the nooks and crannies and boots and pants. I think my old R1100GS still has Haul Road Mud in it.
This MudSling MAX, rear fender extension, is the first one sold. It is a new design to be compatible with the Micatech box mounts. Machineartmoto made sure I got this in time for the trip - it's not even advertised yet. mamo - Good company.
Brand new Metzeler Tourance
Unfortunately, these tires will need to be replaced in four weeks. I'm trying Dyna Beads for the first time instead of lead weights on the rims. I hope they work.
