    Hey DeeTee - cool pic and congrats on a great choice of bike! They look awesome!

    As for the can - I think that the Evolution is a Remus can... Akraprovics are available from BMW dealers and I think some are doing remus as well.

    Hope that helps

    Roadside repairs on the way back. SongHwa's battery is not holding a charge. Bad alternator?

    I'm running the 130/80-17 Gripster on the back until the 140/80-18 Maxxis C6006 tire arrives. I've got a set of Woody's finest waiting for rubber.

    The Gripster does very well on hard pack dirt and gravel. It also hums along with no fuss at 160kph. It steps out a little more than usual in the dirt...because there ain't no side knobs I suppose. Don't take it in the slick mud if crashing makes you nervous.

    The rare and slightly annoying state of ... clean.

    ...... and finally, a bike that needs no introduction ... a bike that will not be embarassed by lack of horsepower or electronic gadgetry... :jose

    Its not an HP2, but it is a a direct ancestor. A link in the chain, one step removed from origin of the species.

    That's why I asked. With the The TT bags (i.e Zega) I've seen the left one is full rectangle, with no cut out for the pipe.

    XRNICK: Sorry, forgot your tire question.......Dunlop 607 .... the only 90/10 dual sport tire that is listed, by their maker, as a proper fit for the HP2's narrow standard rims......I'm very impressed with how well they work on pavement.....Bruce

    So, this weekend, we did some 200km's off road. Not wanted to carry the aluminium Hepco's (no need for so much space) I put (in 10 minutes) my old Tatonka Bicycle Bags. They stayed there without moving, and they are light enough for playing...

    Sorry, I'm still not clear - I find the Holan racks for cut out case on the left on their site, but not sure whether you're saying you cut the left case yourself or whether you got it from TT. If from TT, I don't see anything like it listed for the HP2, but do for the 1200 GS - and so am wondering if that's the one you got?

    If you cut it yourself.... hats off!
