My shiny new 650 /2 is on the boat. Yesterday, I got my factory farkles picked out; bashplate, handguards, touring windscreen. I want top and side cases for my primary use, namely all-weather combat commuting. Here is my dillema; I really want the Jesse's, but I can't afford to buy them outright, right now. I DO NOT want the Varios, which I can put on my loan. Not that they aren't good bags, I just don't want to replace plastic when I drop it in the parking lot when I can bring the Jesse's to work to pound out and weld up. They are right around the same price. My dealer kind of dogs aftermarket stuff, which I take with a grain of salt and shrug off, but they aren't a Jesse dealer and they don't sound like they want to be. I called Xploremoto and another BMW dealer a couple hours away, but they really can't do anything for me. I even offered to buy the factory GPS, which I don't need, if they hook me up. Any suggestions?
