    I don't wonder what KLR riders think. In fact, I don't think or care about what anyone else thinks about what I buy and like.

    Good morning inmates. I'm looking for a relatively flat non bulky handle bar/tank bag similar to what you see in this photo of my bike before it and the bike was destroyed in a car vs motorcycle accident last August. I'm trying to replace it. I can't find it on the internet and doubt if it is still in production. I don't like or want a bulky tank bag. Your thoughts on a replacement.

    I've used http://www.stormind.net before and was really happy with the quality. I sent him dimensions and picked my color.

    I have used RKA tank bags and pannier liners on several BMW motorcycles. I had the 10 liter tank bag on my K1300GT. When I got the R1250GS, I got the RKA 13 liter tank bag. It’s a very nice and well made tank bag. Now I can swap them back and forth. Short single day rides I use the 10 liter, for multi day rides and longer I take the 13 liter tank bag.

    That's where I bought all my Wunderlich parts also. USA based retailers are forced to charge a higher price from Wunderlich USA for some dumbass reason.

    Lots of good stuff I like on my GSA.

    • Remus exhaust header with Blackhawk can. Very loud at startup when cold (even with the db killer in). I like it, some others won't.
    • Corbin Dualsport Saddle.
    • Clearwater Erica Lights.
    • Black Touratech 25L Rear Case and 2 38L Side Cases w/black mounting racks
    • White R1250 HP Beak Decals. Once I replaced the OEM red seat, I decided to change out the red decals.

    Just added these wunderlich bits... the kickstand switch guard is an absolute tank, it would take a huge hit to disable the switch, if that happened I’d think you’d have bigger problems.

    I then added the brake reservoir guard... took about 5 seconds.

    I added the starter motor guard which is pretty cosmetic I think, but the exhaust valve wiring underneath seems pretty vulnerable. Riding in Wisconsin I don’t take any big hits with rock, but I lived in Las Vegas for 10 years and road trails and dirt roads there every chance I had... it was nonstop tinkering of rocks hitting your bike and my old skid plate shows it.

    Hi - I'm considering a Corbin Dualsport for my 1250GS...can you offer any comments as to how you like it, how it sits? It looks to be a bit narrower than some other seats...which is what I'm looking for to aid in getting my feet on the ground. I'd likely go with a low version (clearly not the version you have). Is the foam pretty firm?

    I recently got a Sargent low...its's nice, but the added width (which I really don't need) pretty much negates any benefit of the lower seat toward getting feet on the ground. So looking for something narrower, but with good firm foam seating. Maybe something like this (I used Corbin's design tool):

    Thanks! sean

    Hi Sean, the Dualsport is a bit narrower than the standard Corbin (I had one before the Dualsport). I'm long-legged (35" inseam) so I had Corbin add an inch in seat height on mine so I really can't comment on your reach to the ground with the standard height saddle. It is certainly Corbin firm---until it breaks in a bit but that works well for me. Here's a more overhead look:
