    My dealer selfs it for $70.

    It's made of plastic.

    I ordered the Wonderlich sun shade for the TFT to add a little bit of sun protection and I guess ancillary protection since the sides come up as well. That, for me, is good enough comfort without detracting from that beautiful screen

    I was considering the 58L to replace my old Trekker TRK52 and was also worried it would be too big. I eventually went for the Dolomiti 46L and very happy. Surprised at how much I can fit in the Dolomiti 46L and it does not look too big.

    Yes, someone please post pics/review. I'm considering as well. I like the look over the BMW version but worry it might be too wide.

    Can I fit 40 mm risers on a GSA without having to adjust cables?

    Yep, I have Black Dog 40mm risers on mine, still plenty of slack in all cables and hoses. Sure makes it more comfortable standing!

    Glad you are liking them so far! We've seen almost everyone, regardless of height, benefit from them for standing riding. They will feel a little tall potentially (depending on your height) if you're sitting for the first couple of rides but you should get used to the change quickly and not think about it afterward.

    Thanks for purchasing from us and posting up your experience with our gear. We appreciate it!

    I think I’m going to grab a set of these and I’m seriously considering getting a set of those sick platform pegs in black!

    Picked up my 1250GSA on Friday... love it! I set about starting to install some of the accessories I pre-purchased and as warned (after I had bought it but before I had the bike) I cannot see space to fit my fuzeblock. Would appreciate any suggestions or pics of alternative mounting locations from those that have tried and succeeded (hopefully), if not then EBAY will have anew item this weekend.

    I did wonder about installing into the Touratech tool box and having an off bike solution. Of course this negates the original purpose of the toolbox.

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe a dumb question but I really like the platform pegs but do you know if I can use them to replace the passenger pegs as well? Obviously being able to switch them out of the way is still needed, when not in use. I’d buy two sets if they’d work.

    Hey. Got the 1250 and struggling for space as you predicted. Is that the GSA in your pic. Where you have the PDM60 I have another unit wired in and so don’t appear to have that space. It’s making it harder.

    Thanks for considering our pegs (platform and traction). We've got both finished (black anodized and machine) in stock and ready to ship.

    Thanks, in advance, for your business!

    @side-burn The mounts for the passenger pegs are different and unfortunately aren't compatible with our pegs. That said we have a couple of customers that use our pegs for the primary rider and have used the Ilium Works Passenger Gripper Pegs for the rear. In the photos they don't look like they have much bite in the design but in person they have teeth and will keep your passenger feeling secure (unlike the stock pegs).

    Hope that helps!

    It is a GSA. I suspect you have the alarm, so it takes that space.

    Thanks for the reply. Bummer. My OCD would get the best of me so I’ll look out for something that works for both.

    @_Gir_ Most of our customers wire them in so they are on full-time. In particular, one of our customers, @mark5280, has said that he's gotten caught out in a few all-day downpours and with visibility being horrible he feels that having yellow side markers running saved him when cars were considering merging and the lights caught their attention.

    You have options on how you wire them in. Some customers use a fuzeblock, others use the HEX ezCAN, etc.

    The Rigids we use are their A Series models. Here is a link to more info on the lights on the Rigid site.

    Let us know if we can help with any other questions.

    Thanks!
