    I thought I would pass on a neat and inexpensive upgrade I just did on a tip from Kirk Johnstone of the BMW Motorrad Club of Northern Illinois in this vid. https://youtu.be/cUynLNxzpgQ He mentions the modification around the 5:21 mark. You can swap out the OED dash lights on your speedometer...

    Here is the method I used to fit a GIVI tankbag that uses the circular GIVI TANKLOCK system to a F650ST. GIVI make a tanklock circular ring system that fits on the gas cap on many bikes. Just not either of mine. I wanted to fit the GIVI T480 tankbag so I had to drill and adapt the GIVI...
