Pretty. Thanks for sharing.

In regards to the windshield, quite a few folks here (including myself) have Cee Bailey aftermarket windshields on their 1150RTs. They have a few different sizes and styles.

Hi Duncan1.
Congratulations.
If you need a top case, can I recommend the large Givi E55 cases.
The BMW top case is tiny and fiddly.

Nice!!! Congrats

Some 0000 grade steel wool and water should clean up the oxidation
on those exhaust pipes and make them nice n shiny.

I recommend a headlight cover to keep rocks from cracking the $$$ headlight

I checked their website and it seems they make windshields for all 1150s except the RT???????


Thanks for all the great responses

Have another look under R 1100 & 1150 RT Windshield 1995 - 2006 on their website. It's easily missed since the other 1150's have their own section.

Congrats!
Great color -- too bad BMW stopped using real color in their paints lately!

I tried one of the Cal Sci ones. It went with me to Alaska and back, but I replaced it in favor of the ZTechnik, which has been perfect (for me), except perhaps around town in summer heat--but what larger screen is?

If you want it, shoot me a PM and I'd be happy to send it for the cost of postage. It's in decent condition considering....
