Nice BMW bike.

Nice, Not many places to put the radio and antenna on the BMW.  The antenna is even more of a problem, the grounding of the antenna to the frame is also difficult as BMW chose to make it a small item.

Sorry about the files, as it turns out, they don't show up for me either, although I can download and view them.  I'll upload again, I hope that's okay.

However... There is ways to do it!  Antenna for HF.. plus the screwdriver antenna does transmit on 2 meters too.   
I'm trying to mount the aluminum frame to this BMW K 1200 RS.. far cheaper to purchase new aluminum angle than buy a new screwdriver antenna!
