You might want to go to K1200S.com and ask Northern Monkey as he just painted his KR as a BMW Factory Powercup- it's very sweet looking...oops just realized that he's here on this site-

Hi all

Well below u will see the colour the bike used to be, and the way it is now, got to say that it looks like a different bike with the new colours, just took the rear seat cowl to the sprayers today to finish of the job, pics dont show the the rear foot hangers that ive had powder coated, but ill get some more pics on when i get the cowl back.

Bike looks great!

and I'm still wait'n for the those larger shots (with the blacked out components and rear seat cover) I'd keep the hanger (I made mine much like yours) so when you want to go back to the clean design or that you no longer have the girlfriend..you have it!

I was wondering how you got ahold of that bellypan...then I realized that you're in the UK...

Changing the motorcycle to accomodate girlfriend? Seems kinda extreme to me ;)
