2.75" wider on the left ...total 41.5 inches wide.
Those are SoWestMoto bars.
Come on down. Love that Abita too
Come on down!!! love that Abida also! I have a good camp out spot.. loft above the carport for visitors!
Was looking at those bags at the dealer for mine. Do you think the plastic is strong enough to withstand some crash impact? And, do you know if they are available online? At 1200 at the dealer, I wouldn't mind saving some money.
Beautiful day out on the bike!! Twisties, gravel & amazing scenery...I did not want to come home!
Just got back from Boise from the Iron Butt Association RTEEE - Normally a RTE (ride to eat) but we had three eating opportunities. Was asked to ride this bike to the Chiliburger RTE during the weekend. Enjoy pictures of the new Happy Trail panniers for the F800/F650. Bike also has GPS, Camera, and SPOT tracker mounted.
At the Chiliburger RTE
Looks like the Clif-Cut Teton 7" models. Any chance you can measure the width of the set-up?

Nevermind, I called them and found out for myself. See here for the answer:
How does the 800 compare to the Dakar on the single trail stuff? Can't believe they managed to keep the 800 the same dry weight as the Dakar. The Dakar can do it but it's a hand full.
Said many times before, "Depends on who's riding it." A 455 pound bike is what it is on single track - just like a 250 pound bike is what it is on the freeway.
Good, because they didn't. The 800 weighs 185kg dry, making it a bit more than 17 lbs heavier than the Dakar (177.2kg) according to BMW's website.
More relevant, the 800gs weighs 207kg ready to ride, while the Dakar weighs just 192kg, or 33lbs less.
Hey great pictures!
I was looking at the hight but can't really tell if I would fit on the 800GS.
I'm 5'7" - anyone have an idea?
Inseam/inside leg measurement is what matters.
My new ride with stock BMW luggage installed yesterday. These are special F800GS panniers with dedicated inside cutouts and must not be confused with GSA ones.
Greatly appreciate your post with photos of "field use"!
What brand are your crash bars?
These appear to offer the most protection of any crash bars to date.
They look like the Adventure-Spec prototype, but they're not in production yet, AFAIK. I e-mailed them yesterday to find out when they'll be available and how much to ship the bash plate to the States. I'll post their response. If there is a US fabricator who wants to tackle this, let us know! I for one would be interested in buying a set.
Bluebull2007 put a lot of stuff here about his "farkles": http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=354910
Don't think they're Adventure-Spec, Rob. Wonky's still working on those I think.

Ah, okay thanks.
So what's yours?
I took a rough measurement with a tape-measure and got 30 1/2 inches. Thanks
