    It looks like it but nope, the Fairing is still "racing red" which is a gloss. There was a 2014-2016 GS that was a matte-red. I prefer that one but they went gloss.

    It's taken about four months (about 2 mos due to back ordered lights), but this is what I've done to the bike (2018 R1200 GS) since buying it in January. The bike is pretty much where I want it now--of course things may change going forward. I originally posted the new to me (2018 R1200 GS) in post 647 on page 44.

    Machine Art Moto cylinder head guards
    Touratech crash bars
    Denali D2 lights w/ Hex EzCan
    Added brake light
    BMW Frame Guards
    Puig Headlight protector
    Touratech large sidestand foot
    Weiser Technik LED replacement bulbs turn indicators.
    Inexpensive Final Drive protector and slider (off of EBay)
    Inexpensive Phone cradle for the BMW GPS holder

    With regards to tank bags, I first ordered a Touratech bag, which was good, but a bit too big for my liking and I wasn't a fan of the straps to attach the bag. So, I ordered SW Motech' Pro Micro bag and tank ring. I like this set up better. The bag is rather small, but I don't need it to hold much. Just earplugs, opener, etc. It's hard to see the bag in the photo below as it is blocked by the right-side hand guard and mirror.

    The picture below is a re-creation of the initial photo (post 647 on page 44). https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread...Wethead/page44
