Thinking about pimping my '95 L11LT a little (got the fever)
I got my bike serviced and asked Khanh from EUBMW to replace my "saggy" rear spring with a progressive shock. Turns out, it was broken. Thank God, I thought the squirreliness was due to tires.
Anyway, now that I am sure-footed again and back in love, I have been admiring the tricked-out bikes I see, but I want your help. I would like a long-distance set up, including mounts for phones, GPS, charging, suggestions for Bluetooth solution for a helmet (can I take calls at speed?), and suggestions for running lights/fog lamps, any other sort of upgrade or farkle that would aim towards comfort and function above any semblance of form.
The bike's sort of a beater, but I want the internals to be as nice as possible and I want to make my long trips as delightful as possible.
Or, should I just leave it be.
I don't know how much money I would spend on fixing up the body as I love the idea of having an awesome, optimized, performance bike wrapped up in a Derelict body, like they've been doing at ICON.
Anyway, any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
