    I am in the market for an Ortlieb tank bag. Your website, TouratechUSA, and most other vendors show a price of $190US, Touratech Canada it is $282.18CDN. That is over 50% premium for the privilege of buying it in Canada!! I also recently tried to buy a Touratech brake pedal enlarger, only to discover Canada doesn't carry it, and TouratechUSA wouldn't sell it to me, since you have a supplier up here! I eventually had to buy it from A&S BMW, and ship it up from the US.

    In these days where it is easy enough on the internet to find the "real" price of an item, and "most" companies are willing to ship to Canada, and I am more than willing to pay for shipping, it seems bad corporate policy to have such pricing discrepancies, and restrictions on who can buy from your internet store.

    As for my tank bag, I will have to buy it from Aerostich, and have it shipped up from the USA...again....

    Mid-March we will have these Husky TR650 Terra side racks in stock.
    These then are coupled with our various Zega Pro pannier options.

    Take a look at the trailer for Touratech's forthcoming film which highlights a month long expedition across Madagascar. The film, available sometime this Spring, includes footage of both their expedition and their extensive test of BMW's new liquid-cooled R1200GS and the Husky TR650 Terra.

    Touratech is excited to announce a complete line of adventure-touring accessories for BMW&#8217;s all new liquid-cooled R1200GS. Designed specifically to protect the most important parts of your new motorcycle; Touratech&#8217;s new line of accessories includes a stainless-steel radiator guard - which is now an essential item for any adventure aboard the new liquid-cooled BMW, as well as an Expedition Skid Plate and stainless steel Crash Bars. Other items include our Zega Pro pannier system and top case, a large side stand foot to keep your bike firmly planted while parked, and our new quick-release stainless steel headlight guard, which prevents damage to BMW&#8217;s new LED headlight. All of Touratech&#8217;s accessories for the liquid-cooled R1200GS have been thoroughly tested both on and off road. So whether you&#8217;re planning the adventure of a lifetime or a weekend ride with a few friends, you can be sure your new BMW is protected from whatever lies ahead.

    Featured below are a few highlights of the new adventure-touring accessory line for the 2013 R1200GS:

    Zega Pro Pannier System: $1,342.00 - $1,537.50
    The Touratech Zega Pro pannier system is the ultimate luggage solution for your BMW R1200GS. Zega Pro panniers have provided secure and dry storage for adventure riders the world over. The aluminum body and removable lid feature rugged corner protection, as well as low-profile loops that provide a flat surface to secure additional dry bags. Crafted with 1.5mm aluminum and stainless steel rivet construction, Touratech&#8217;s Zega Pro panniers are available in 31, 38 and 45 liter sizes and three different finishes: bare aluminum, anodized silver and anodized black.

    Touratech Crash Bars: $397.00 - $419.00
    A parking lot tip over, gravel road drop, or even a low-side on the pavement with the R1200GS boxer engine can seriously jeopardize your trip. The valve cover and cylinder collide with the ground when the GS tips over, so crash bars are critical protection. Touratech Crash Bars protect your engine with a stainless steel cage structure that wraps around the valve cover and cylinder of the liquid cooled R1200GS for complete coverage. Made of 1-inch diameter stainless steel tubing, these crash bars are engineered to take a beating and never let you down. In addition to offering the ultimate in protection, the stainless steel tubing follows the natural lines of the GS, accenting the distinctive look of this stylish machine.

    Touratech Upper Crash Bars: $327.30
    A vital component of the liquid-cooled boxer engine is its radiator, and while BMW did a good job of keeping it tucked out of the way, the bottom corners are still vulnerable and can become a liability on a long adventure. Touratech Upper Crash Bars keep your radiator protected during a tip-over and also prevent damage to expensive body and fairing pieces on your water-cooled BMW R1200GS.
    Made of 1-inch diameter stainless steel tubing, these bars are not only tough but also contribute to the adventure aesthetic of this capable machine. Touratech&#8217;s Upper Crash Bars are easy to install and provide a solid location for mounting auxiliary lights. They are fully compatible with BMW&#8217;s OEM crash bars, as well as Touratech Crash Bars, and Touratech LED auxiliary lights.

    Expedition Skid Plate: $374.90
    Touratech&#8217;s Expedition Skid Plate offers unprecedented protection for your R1200GS water-cooled engine. The heavy gauge stainless steel mounting plate absorbs impact while supporting the oversized 4mm contoured aluminum skid plate, which has integrated polyamid nylon rails that absorb impact, protect bolt heads and provide a smooth sliding surface for overcoming obstacles.

    Quick-Release Stainless Steel Headlight Guard: $130.80
    Don&#8217;t let the lights go out on your next adventure! Touratech has developed a stainless steel guard with quick-release mount that allows you to easily keep the headlight on your BMW R1200GS clean and free from damage.

    Stainless Steel Radiator Guard: $138.00
    A rock thrown into your BMW's radiator from another vehicle or motorcycle can end a trip quickly. Touratech&#8217;s stainless steel radiator guards for the new water-cooled BMW R1200GS will protect your vulnerable radiators from damage. These stainless guards are laser cut and feature louvered fins with air-flow ports that have been engineered to deliver the maximum volume of air to the cooling system on your water-cooled BMW R1200GS.

    Touratech Large Sidestand Foot: $40.80
    Touratech's Large Sidestand Foot stabilizes your BMW R1200GS when parked in grass, gravel, mud or forest soil. The increased surface area of the Touratech Sidestand Foot dramatically improves the stability of the R1200GS, making your off-the-beaten-path parking much easier.

    After 55 days on the road, Helge Pedersen and his team have arrived safely in South America. Stay tuned for additional updates from GlobeRiders Motorcycle Adventures 'Alaska to Tierra del Fuego' expedition!


    "Greetings from South America. We are having some incredible riding days with spectacular nature and good winding roads as we head for Tierra del Fuego.

    This is what the R1200GS Adventure is made for, can not think of a better bike for this kind of riding.

    Anyone know where this picture was taken?"
