    Linex...it isn't just for pick up trucks

    This past spring, I purchased the expandable BMW side cases for my 650 gs. I was really suprised at how crappy they are! If you look at it too hard, you risk dents, dings, and scratches.

    A friend owns the local Linex shop. You know, the spray on bed liner stuff for pick up trucks. It's really durable and suprisingly, light weight. I had him spray my bags and I think they came out great. Now it won't be so obvious if I have a little booboo.

    When I put the 8.5 gallon expanded fuel tank on my K75 I used truck bedliner as a finish. The body shops wanted way too much to paint a tank. Made a good finish. Gas drips didn't bother it, and it was easy to keep clean. Impervious to tankbag scuffs too. Great stuff for motorcycles.

    GREAT! Just what I needed, another way to spend $$$ on the RT. (OK, where is the phone book?)

    I got some bedliner stuff in a can that I sprayed on my crash bars, and I think it looks great. What did it cost to get bags and tank done? There's a place right up the street from me.

    Temporary spray on protection

    I used the Spray On Bra from Griot's Garage. Rubberized stuff, sprays on, peels off, but lasts for thousands of miles. Good protection from rocks and seems to repel bugs too. No word on how effective it is absorbing radar signals. You can see a pictures of it on both the R1100RT and R1200RT and in the group of pics of the Northern Tour ride at www.corso.org.
