I had been dreaming to have one since I started to work on motorcycles, but always kept the money to buy more and more bikes. A couple of weeks ago, I thought : "Hey what about a smart purchase so that you don't hurt your back at every engine swap, oil drain or brake bleed ?" ... 

So I bought nice workbench from Matthys. It's heavy but still easy to move on the garage's floor. It looks strong but only time will tell.

Loaded, ready to head back home
Let's put a no-caption then ...

Oh, by the way, I also came back with this nice bike grab. This is a typical Matthys product : home designed, good build quality and fairly priced product.

eBay find

It's not a very common practice for an official BMW dealer to sell lingering parts on eBay. So when I came across this left side panel the other day, I couldn't help myself clicking the "Buy now" button. I imagine the 40€ claimed price had something to do with this compulsive buy.

Pretty cheap for a brand new side panel for which BMW usually asks 4 times that auction price. It arrived yesterday in a huge cardboard box and it actually looks like new. Still have to decide on the paint scheme though ...
