While at the MOA rally, I picked up a headlight protector ring from Matthew Parkhouse who is a longtime contributor to the BMW Owner's News. It made the journey back in one piece, and I finally got around to installing it on the bike. Unlike the tail light protector, this was a five minute job. Since I had to loosen the headlight nacelle anyway, I took the opportunity to solder some wires from a previous owner's repair that were being held together with electrical tape. Although it might have worked well for the next decade, I feel much better now.
