Happy b-day Ted. Yer an inspiration.

Yup, a very inspiring guy. I thoroughly enjoyed his cameo in Long Way Round where he met up with Ewen and Charley in Mongolia.

He's a true trailblazer whose books, full of storied adventures, put a lot of guys (and gals) on lengthy road trips to far-off lands on bikes...

At the moment not for all items, but we do offer:

Free shipping on select KLIM Jackets & Pants
Taken automatically at checkout.
Free ship valid for whole order if combined w/ non-Klim products.

This fall, after we finish the COBDR ride, we'll redo our website to offer additional ADV specials.

Thanks for asking!

Desierto III issue...Help!

Talk about timing....I have a Touratech issue/question. I am thinking about buying a Desierto III for my 2012 GSA from another inmate. The question is...he has the model for the '08+ GS (not GSA). The part numbers on Touratech's web site are different for the '08+ GS and the '08+ GSA. Looking at the installation instructions they appear identical. The current owner called Touratech and said that he was told that all the basic parts are the same except for the lower brackets that attach near the tank (since the GSA tank is wider). Is this correct? If it is I should be able to order the corresponding part and the system should work fine. I would assume that Touratech has some type of internal part numbers for each individual component of the Desierto and would think that comparing these numbers would tell exactly what parts are the same and which are different. I just don't want to buy it and get stuck with a system that doesn't work on my bike because it's major components are different. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a question:

What took you so long?

It'll be good having a vendor presence on the site.

The major components of the R1200GS Desierto fairings are all the same. As the tech said on the phone, the lower mounts where the fairing attaches to the side panels, or tank are different. These parts would need to be special ordered in Germany, as they are not something we stock in the U.S. It will take some time to research the correct pieces for the conversion, and to get them shipped here. Give us a call and we can get the ball rolling. I have no estimate on the cost of the brackets, we will have to research that as well. Best way to proceed would be to call our customer service line at 1-800-491-2926.
