Got mine two weeks ago. Have not ridden with them yet as it is still winter here. But I can say they are very high quality bags with a great mounting system. I do not like soft bags that need straps...

quadzillabill: If you are asking how secure the tool carrier is, it is attached to the rack with three screws. As for the Rolie bag, it sits in the frame and I attach the bag with a Rok strap to keep...

ABS deactivation

For me turning the ABS off is a PIA. When riding dirt roads all day and stopping a lot it becomes cumbersome and time consuming to do. Can you just pull the two ABS fuses and be done with it? Any...

Another vote for the Mitas E-07

The Mitas E-07 is a better tire than the Heidi K60 in my opinion. I have run both and liked the Mitas better. You can only get them out of Canada at MX-1.com. And they are less expensive than...

Mitas E-07's are great tires

I agree with you about these tires. Better in the wet than Hedi's K60's and last longer than any other tire I have used on my 1150GS. Still less expensive than most tires even with the shipping to...

Wicked Just vertically challenged

And I thought black was supposed to make us thinner!!!
Sam, all you need to do is add 4-5 inches (in height) and you would be thinner.

Safe travels
