    The headlight and rear lights are running on different circuits, I kinda want to keep them that way. Might not matter, but if it didn't, why would BMW have them separate?

    Just received my new Fuzeblock [www.fuzeblocks.com], so I'll be tearing into the wiring here in the next couple days to route the switch(es?).

    Out of curiosity, has anyone here done a mod like this with a killswitch for all lights? All input welcome

    I bought this 1999 R1100GS last November with 108,000 miles for $2,900. It has been to the Artic Circle three times. Wow, is it ever an animal! It is big, heavy, and smooth at 70 mph. Oh, did I mention it is heavy? I've dumped it three times already this spring while at a standstill. I've got the Heidenau K60s to go on after planting season (I'm a farmer, and you are actually looking at a piece of farm equipment). I also have Hyperpro shocks arriving this week from Klaus, ... perhaps I have more money than sense, but everybody says aftermarket shocks are the best improvement one can make.

    Kinda quiet here... I rolled my '95 RS out of the garage this sunny morning and snapped a picture. Rode it to work and did not want to stop! Love my RS.

    It is a Cee Bailey's, about 18" tall x 18" wide. I've got the version without the "flip", which is a huge improvement over the stock R1100RS windshield. No turbulence and less noise! In the winter I raise it up a bit. Looks better than stock too.

    Hmmm...

    Well compared to "stealthed" GS's, I'd have to agree...

    But compared to a Gray/Mandarin, Boxer Cup, or even a Pathetic Blue S, not so much!

    (BTW, Mark's RS is quite lovely... )

    Bill, I'd be disappointed if you didn't chime in. And thank you for the parenthetical compliment--is that sort of like crossing your fingers behind your back?

    Yeah...sort of!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    PS. Many moons ago, I talked a buddy into buying a pristine, lightly used RS. I did this to prevent a big hit to my wallet! And yes, he still owns that bike, the only one he's kept more than a year....

    PPS. That RS was black as well...next to Gray/Mandarin, I like black bikes a lot...LOL
