    That seems like a very strange limitation. My Rallye has the sports suspension package and is fully loaded with every available option, including keyless and the nav control wheel.

    Did some impromptu off-roading on mine yesterday, thanks to my mate! Anakees and slippery wet mud are NOT a good combination! Both me and the bike are still in one piece!

    The Contis are much quieter. Better on road too.

    Just back from a 3 day trip on my GS. Had a blast. Did one day of the 7 Mtns. Dual Sport Adventure in PA. Bike was fantastic. I am loving the Fasst Flexx bars off road.

    My new "Babe (the Blue Ox)" with Atacama side panniers fitted last week but that's a whole 'nother story about the necessary workarounds on the various NHSTA obstructions. Regardless these panniers could be the World's most expensive "side reflectors" ever! Had her out for a few days of camping to try them out. Vario top box is primarily for trips to town, office visits and asphalt slab duty as well as carrying those "things" that absolutely need to be under lock and key if not carried on your person. This bike is, without a doubt, my favorite GS of the three I have owned. I will go back to my usual TKC-80s as soon as I have burned off these crappy Anakee III.

    Yes. 15 degree Adventure bend. I really like them off road. Soak up all the bumps with no loss of feel. On road bend is maybe a hair aggressive but the stock bars had way to much sweep for me.

    The whole "side reflector" rack delay has given me too much time to think about something I would normally come to a quick decision on: bags for new GSA.

    Since I have the waiting downtime, I've been debating Atacama's vs Wolfman's Rocky Mountains vs possibly aluminum again.

    Are you "thumbs up" on the Atacama's so far?

    Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

    So here are some early thoughts on the BMW/Mosko Atacama bags after just one multi-day trip and a photo of the gear I was traveling with:
    1. Construction - really solid materials and assembly on these bags. No weak links or cut corners that I can see so far. Rode for an hour+ in heavy rain (plus some hail on one mountain pass) and inner bags remained perfectly dry. Mounting system feels really solid and is super easy to use but lacks integral locking function for security of contents or unwanted bag removal. Not an issue for where I will be using them off road but they would not be an "urban" solution for me.
    2. Design - well thought out features like beavertail flap, side pockets with closures and removable WP liners. One downside to the liners is their heavyweight construction which diminishes the capacity of the outer bag. I may end up leaving one of them out and just using light individual WP stuff sacks for items on that side. The outer bags do seal up really well against dust. The side pockets are a little small in diameter but pretty deep so functional for a limited number of contents.

    I had the Vario bags on my first GS, BMW boxes on my GSA and now these Atacamas. They all have their respective benefits AND drawbacks. Really depends on intended use for determining best solution. Happy to answer any specific questions if you have them. IMG_3742.JPG

    Very helpful....thanks. I've been through the exact same bag progression and I agree with the benefits/drawbacks comment....just like bikes themselves.

    Look great on the Rallye.
