That's a great idea... one on each side of the bike even... )))

Me thinks Boston is going nuts about now... )))

I would like one set as well.... I was assuming that they are on each side of the bike, yes?

I think it is awesome looking and will patiently wait for the best manufactured look. I think blue or even white LEDs would be the best.

Thanks in advance for doing this,

I think the roundels look great. I'm interested in the amber color, just like the ones on the Z4.

I think that our group response may have been overwhelming, or it may just be me, but BostonBagger hasn't responded in a while,....do you think he is still in the country?

He's conspicuous in his absence. Maybe he's a tease.

I making a kit to light the reflectors on the sides of system cases. Don't know if someone else is doing or done it but mine will be done via a photodiode activated bluetooth link so no harness hassles. Will post pics when finished. Right now it works on the bench.

What do you reckon Linz?
Will they work downunder? After all we are upside down and we use a different voltage!!
Maybe we will have to mount then upside down so the at the light travels the right way!!!dopeslap

Sorry for the quite time, but I just got back from a week in the Carolina's riding in and around the Blue Ridge Parkway. No - I didn't make it up to either of the two rallies, but I did get in 2100 miles of amazing roads. The BLING worked like a champ in heavy rain. This was the trials run too for me.

While riding, I stopped off at the BMW dealership in Daytona on the way home. Here is what I have learned.
  • The kit as I have it now, will NOT work with 2005 and beyond R 1200 RTs. The emblem is slightly larger and it looks as if they have possibly standardized on a 70 mm badge. I measured 69. I am looking into getting parts made for these.
  • It WILL work on the R 1150 RTs.
  • I'm ASSUMING that this will work just fine on the R1100 RT, but would like confirmation that the emblem is 60 mm or just a hair under 2 3/8". Would someone please send me a PM and confirm the size of the emblem on the R1100RT for me. I don't want to ASSUME.

Thank you for all your help.

Phil
