uh, well....about 60,000 totally. don't really know. I got it from the original owner, who bought it in Germany and rode all over Europe on it, and shipped it back. He never registered it, since he had many bikes, just swapped plates. I nagged him for years to sell, but he wouldn't, so I found a used '82 G/S and rode that for about 50k. Jack got brain cancer, and before he died he called and asked if I was still interested. By this time, my G/S had lots of miles, and this one had just 14k, so I said hell yes! I rode it about 5 years and 50k more, selling it after a crash to a friend. I thought that 100k+ on the G/S was enough, silly guy. I went to the K75s for another 10 years, and a R1100RS after that. My friend had a baby, and the G/S leaned against a shed for 12 years. I got it back from him for free in a trade, coinciding with a refi, fortunately. I tossed $6k at it to make it the way it looks, but I am 'REALLY' happy to have my old G/S back. So, that photo is just about 200 miles after the restore, with a total mileage of somewhere over 60k. If you think this was a long story, the G/S for free story is longer!

I plan to have the KLR system ready by March. It is the next bike to roll into the shop for prototyping.

These are very slick! Looks like some extra flop protection to supplment my crash bars. Can't wait to see your R12GS version, I'm glad I hadn't sprung for bags yet. I could see customizing the side panels with some laser-cut aluminum trim or even some thin diamond plate for the true road warrier look (and to cover unsightly gouges, of course!) I've saved your bookmark and will keep my eyes peeled. What was that ETA again?

Here's a good view of the 1420's mounted to a Wee Strom: http://11109.rapidforum.com/topic=10...8563&startid=2

Yeah, no kidding. Feels like a real winter around here too.

The 1200GS prototype will be finished this weekend and I'll post a pic. KLR is up next, then the V-Strom.

Design and prototyping is on schedule, but production is moving slower than expected, so availability of the 1150GS system is about 4 weeks late. I expect production to improve after the holidays.

Stay tuned.

Now your making things tough on me...I was just about to pull the trigger on the Touratech rack and 18mm mounting puck system for my 640...than I was gonna get the 1520 cases from you with your locks and lanyards...

I like the Touratech mounts but your system, with the "breakaway" feature is definitely superior....but I can't wait till mid summer....decisions, decisions...

Those cases in the f650gs pics look huge,but I suspect its due to the angle the pics were taken,Do you have any from different angles,maybe from a lower angle or the rear?
