Baggy with Accessories

This is my 05 Baggy with a bunch of Touratech stuff on it. I have SM and Enduro wheels and switch back and forth occasionally. (like when a bunch of spokes broke in the back of the 18" rear) You can't really see it in these pictures, but I installed the Touratech 2l fuel can on the inside (opposite from muffler) side of the left pannier. It HAS come in handy.





I have the rear trunk "electrified" with a bunch of products from www.powerlet.net and often run heated gear, GPS, Sattelite radio, and keep my phone charged. I have been real happy with the bike with no real problems other than ones I created by trying to do deep sand with SM wheels. (front fender snaps right off just so you know) I do need to either extend the exhaust exit to keep the soot off the bag or just build a custom muffler. I had a M4 originally on it but it would not clear with the bag mounts.

Yup, it's still my principle bike, the one I love riding the most

There's so much I have yet to learn about riding ......

While I'm here, I went down exactly a year ago due to a sucky front tire, so I'm still in the market for a right mirror. Too bad MZ parts are so hard to find, I've been checking eBay for a whole year now But I love my Baghira.

There was a Yellow Baghira on eBay a few weeks ago, with a Bag system I would LOVE to have had. It was the nice solid Pelican hard cases, but what was special here, the owner had formulated his own side and top rack, welded it together. It was a custom job and looked slick. No wonder his bike sold easily.

Well taht 3 of us rthat are ina different class!

Tigerboy, have you approached a local fabricator? Be quite easy to have something made up using your grab rail mounting points or even brackets for one of the after market set ups to bolt onto your grab rail. Soem of teh top kits have universal clamps on and I'm sure using a a few bars and suitable clamps you could get one to fit mcGyver stylee!

My front disc had some play in it and would rattle as you hit a bump etc. There was almost 2mm movment between the disc and carrier which isn't good. I was told an R1 disc (99-02) fits okay so I had a look on ebay nd bagged a brand new one for 46 delivered! I put it on the bike on saturday and yes it went straight on, but i had some trouble getting the caliper back on and it to really push it against the wheel to get it back into position! But it is on and working fine and seems to all line up okay now its on there. Anyone else fitted a R1 disc? Was your clearance when refitting the caliper an issue?

I'm riding with the MUCH improved and much cooler looking mirrors from a KTM 950SM







Looks a LOT better and plentiful

Now that is sweet! Looks more up todate too! I've got to swap out my bars for narrower ones as the OEM ones are just too wide when lane splittiing into London. Might see if I can find some KTM mirrors too.

You are not alone....

I'm still out there riding my MZ Black Panther every day. Haven't taken a picture of her for a while, but here's one from our trip to Death Valley a year or so ago:




That pic is of the dual sport kit, but I have the SM wheels as well (it was originally the SM model). I absolutely love this bike. With both sets of wheels, there isn't a better all-around bike to own. Sure, I might own another bike someday, but I'll never get rid of this one.

It really needs to be put up for a few weeks to fix some little things (oil seepage from a case bolt that stripped out, take apart and lube the rear shock/links, new sprockets/chain, etc.). Hope to get that stuff taken care of at some point this summer.

Glad to hear there are still some Baggies out there kicking!

WOW, I like your bag system on that. Is that all off-the-shelf?

Nice and compact. While I'm happy with my top bag, by the time I strap on my tent, sleeping back, knapsack and cot (on trips that I camp), doesn't leave a whole lot of space for me

Plus the KTM mirrors look slick, but probably aren't cheap either.
