Smile This Gal got an S...

Well I did it. I found a beauty! It's been custom painted Porsche Black. It has a remus full pipe, barbacks and bags! It's very different from the K-RS to say the least. Anyway just thought I would post a few pic's of it.

Later, Shelley (;>

Just curious, you said you "found a beauty" - did you buy this from a private owner or did a dealer do all the customizing?

Impressed in Asheville!!

Way to go Shelley!! and I have to admit... and I'm not just saying this... That's the best looking S I have seen. Makes me wonder if BMW will come out with a black version sooner or later.. Very sleek.. very classy.

As for the S.. I'm right behind you. Trying to get my hands on one as we speak..

Thumbs up

What a geat color for this bike. Why did'nt BMW come out with this color in the first place?
Congrats and maybe should think about putting that protective clearsheet on some of the panels. Lots of sandblasting on those beautiful AZ highways.

Wow, thanks Pirate... That means a lot coming from you! It was a private owner who worked for a Porsche dealer who had to have it done up in porsche black! I'm sure you're correct in saying that BMW will soon come out with it in black because that's just my luck!!! hehehe! So I guess I'd better show it off before it's just another black S! (;>

I need to find a black windscreen for it as I think it will really be a stealth looking bike then!

Hey to the moderator of this new site... I'm not a junior member... I was the "First GAL" many years ago to sign on Vic's site who rode the Mighty K12RS. Hell thanks to Vic's site both Angie & I were like movie stars at the Midland Rally in 2000! Two gals who rode across country to meet the K12 gang at the MOA Rally! We made buddies across the US just from that rally alone...

Now that BMW will be coming out with lighter bikes, I think, you're going to see many gals on the newer models. Dang there goes my limelight! hehehe.

Enjoy the RIDE!
