    Check this post. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=8436288#post8436288 Since this post both OEM straps have fatigued and broken. Now I have a 1/8" band iron top strap and an aluminum lower. I will someday make another aluminum one so they match.

    And yes I have a R100GS. Bought it brand new at Andy Pelc's in 1988. It was my first BMW. It's a real jewel.

    Wow - I don't think I've seen one of those in the flesh. It's a great looking bike.

    Leo Vince Carbon. No performance gain that I can tell, but it's half the size, a third the weight, and sounds nicer. Oh, and the carbon stays cool enough to touch even at its hottest.

    Welcome to the game, but you may have missed one of the primary rules. It doesn't appear to be on a dirt road. My apologies if I'm wrong!

    Yes, I missed the rule. And no, that's not even close to a dirt road.

    So, disregard and carry on as usual.
