...now they should be able to hear me coming...at least, they would do if the battery had'nt chosen today to die ( which is why the side-panels are off)...still, a good opportunity to upgrade, I think. Anyone on here used a Westco battery before?

Link below, seems like it should work OK. And then I can get on with all the fun of re-jetting to suit the exhausts. Deep joy....

This is a nice bike, I like the way you've got that classic BMW look. I was working in a local motorbike shop once and said to the owner that I had a '82 R100RT that I had repainted metallic grey and fitted an S fairing. His reply was "BMWs are ugly". I took a slight offence to this but put it down to his ignorance. Five years later I'm still riding the RT, not just because I find it nice looking, but because I have yet to find a better bike to replace it. Its more than quick enough for road use, handles well (for an almost 30 year old), starts on the button and if something were to break down, it should be easily sorted. It does about 55 mpg and holds enough petrol for over 200 miles, and when I take the wife on the back, she's comfortable and not perched up in the air. It even sounds nice, and at 70mph its so smooth I'm more relaxed than I really should be. Plus, those cylinders really keep your feet warm. Enjoy.
