  3. What are the odds???

    Africa Twin
    I now own two 2001 Africa Twins... yes, TWO. I feel like I must be cheating to get this lucky. :toothy7: Both VIN's identical except for serial (obviously)... one with VIN 415573 and the other 415575! Basically they're brothers, err, dare I say it... Twins :laughing6: . Even more extraordinary...
  4. Pet peeve

    This just flopped into my inbox: What is it with people insisting that BMW makes a "GSA 1200 R"? Lack of literacy? Do they also talk about the Suzuki "RR 1000 GSX"? Yamaha's "Z 1200 XT"? Honda's new "X 1200 VFR", "R 600 XL", "V 600 XL" etc? And why stop there? "Twin Africa" has a certain...
  5. Well, then

    New 'kettle' GSA. Apparently it can take 5 kg more weight on the back compared to the old 1200 GSA. Should be good for Pete. :mrgreen:

  14. Home made BBQ ideas

    I'm thinking about making a BBQ I can take on the GSA and I reckon something the size of one of the lids of the panniers would be about the right size. My thought was to make a tray out of sheet aluminium with sides about 2 inches high which would hold the coals and then take an oversize grill...

  20. GSA Dirt Magnet

    Any idea where BMW fit the dirt magnet on the GSA? I've looked just about everywhere but I just can't find it. Every time I go out it comes back like it has been ridden through a ploughed field. Those sneaky Germans must have hidden it well.
