Well, give us an update, are you still holed up in Puebla swilling Modelo and waiting on parts, or are you back on the road headed to Oaxaca, or beyond.

Why not look at one of the BMW Sport Bags. There's a small (30L) and a Large (54L approx.). The large is not obtrusive or "too large" and you can certainly carry enough for a weekend trip if needed....

That just serves to remind us how very capable these big bikes really are, however, 99% of us will never reach that potential on our bikes...but it's nice knowing it's there!
