Its from a British company called Keihan. They are nice, but but mine has always been a pig to put on compared with stock.

pxc433, did you know that BMW made a hip length jacket to match that paint job? It's a very nice jacket with zip out liner.

A friend of mine who lives in Orange, Calif. and came from England, had one of those bikes that was that color scheme from new. He sold it several years ago. I too, like that color scheme.

Yikes! That would be quite a workout. I would have been tempted to dis-assemble the bike.

Deep sand and I don't get on either. I'm pretty sure DucatiPete has some good pics of me and Brunhilde in various stages of not-being-upright on the sandy tracks at the Grampians.

I was a fool not to walk it first ....but of course it looked fine . She sank straight in , I unloaded the gear and the panniers and lifted the rear out of the hole and the sand ran back in. I started and walked her forward 18'', bogged again to the same depth . Repeat ad nauseum . Eventually I found a hard bottom and was out.

One unheralded advantage of shaft drive..... that coarse white granitic sand would have eaten a chain and sprockets before I got out and likely the clutch housing too.

The front wheel looks OK---might want to pack a bit lighter, though. :lol:

She looks heavily loaded but there wasn't much weight involved..... she dug into that damn sand just as well once unloaded.The softness of the sand was the problem.
