Wunderlich/Luismoto center stand - with home-made crud- and rust protection added: Central Stand for BMW R NineT Family #74

Great for garage space-saving & fork relief, maintenance and flat positioning of boxer cylinders.
Lowers center of gravity even more.
Levels the blinker fluid, too.😉 And makes you a hero at the café. Truly amazing.

sharpened up with the new DK Design digital instrument



and - just in case - fortified with those T-Rex sliders, a.k.a. “Boxer-bra”

Great location for the radar detector - perfectly legal in the US... combined with a separate “smart cord” LED behind the fly screen, it gives a good visual signal and a decent chance to avoid those encounters. Power is tapped from park light. Also: headlight protection from Hella. Good for slipstream racing!

The black exhaust headers underline the strict black&silver color scheme.

And here’s - drumroll - the most reasonably priced mod. For $2.99 from the supermarket’s kitchen dep’t I now have a sophisticated pre-intake filter. Have caught a couple of critters already!


Plus: Sargent seat: No more p.i.t.a. Great mile enhancer!

Latest addition: the Bobby Axle-rad illuminated floating wheel cap! Gorgeous!


Hope y’all enjoyed!

PS: I also love to polish those Alpina wheels. It’s my fav “non-moving meditation” activity.
Those won’t fit the bike...😉 But they’re also from Bavaria.
