Here's the scoop. For an owner of an R1200GS that is willing to let us use their as a display bike during the BMW MOA rally next month in Gillete, well provide the upper and lower SW-MOTECH crashbars and the Quick-Lock sidecarriers free of charge. Together, these items have a combined retail value of about $650.

If we cannot locate an owner of an R1200GS, wed also consider working with the owner of a K1200R, K1200S, F800S, F800ST, or F800GS. We cannot make this offer to the owner of an R1200GS Adventure, as we do not have enough parts that will fit this bike. We would prefer that the bike we obtain be newer and not have many other add-ons already installed.

Lower crashbar:

Upper crashbar:


Additional items that we'd wish to display temporarily at the show include the following:

SW-MOTECH Alu-Rack and adapter plate:

Quick-Lock tankring

Fog lights: (we would mount, but not wire, this product if you did not want to keep it)

VarioScreen or VarioTouringScreen:

Handlebar risers:

Mirror Wideners:

GS Tankbag:

Trax sidecases and Trax adapters

Trax or Coocase V36 topcase:

These additional items are relatively easy to attach and detach from the bike. Any of these items that you'd like to keep following the show would be available at a 40% discount off regular Twisted Throttle prices.

We'll ship most of these items to you in advance of the show. We'd ask that you install the items prior to coming to the show (to the extent possible). Any items you did not wish to keep could be removed by us at the conclusion of the show.

The bike would need to arrive at the Gillette, Wyoming rally site on the evening of Wednesday, July 16th, and could depart after the conclusion of the show on Saturday evening, July 19th, 2008.
