History
I purchased this bike from a dealer in Texas; I live in Michigan. Drove there in February 2019 to pick it up. Hit an ice storm in lower Illinois that followed us all the way home. Brutal! Now it has been a c-c-c-cold Spring here in Michigan so my baby sits in the garage waiting for Mother nature to play nice.

Modifications

Exterior
I added a cup holder for the driver on the right side using RAM brand mount accessories. I researched and discovered that the 6mm threads on the screws that hold the side panel of the BMW and the 1/4-20 thread used on the RAM mount parts, can be accommodated using a fairly common fastener used by photographer's to mount a camera to a tri-pod. I found mine on E-bay but there are several sites out there.
I'm planning to use the same principles to add a cup holder for the passenger. By attaching these cup holders this way, I eliminate the need to drill holes or change the original bodywork which I feel is a nice bonus!
Suspension
UPDATE on the driver's cup holder. Assembled a PowerPoint to include pics and explanations.
Wheel and Tire
I added the Powerlet Port to keep the Battery tender plugged in. Got this idea from a previous post in here! This Site is PRICELESS for tips, ideas and suggestions! THE MEMBERS ROCK!!!!!
