Went out and explored the Gunnison Gorge Conservation Area. Nice area about a 7 hour day out and exploring. The bike rocks.
701 into Paonia
On a ridge above the Gorge
Picnic area in the middle of the ridge. I didn't do the Southern end of the area, The route had you dropping down into the valley and then climbing back up, didn't have enough time.

Explored a bit of Mamquam FSR last night.
Fully loaded! Just spent 2 weeks touring around the Austrian and Italian Alps with my gf. Half the time spent camping, hence why it's so loaded.
Despite the weight, the bike performed great. 90mph on the motorway for long periods, overtaking on steep mountain passes with no issues.. couldn't have asked for anymore. Not much in the way of vibration, though this was probably helped by the anti vibration risers / re map / grip puppies :)
That bike is pretty loaded down.
Thanks! It was loaded pretty heavy, though perfectly balanced and secured so it wasnt so bad. I was overtaking for fun in places despite it all. The crash bar bags hold bulky items such as heated jacket, liners, inner tubes so they weren't particularly heavy. The dry bags contain clothes, yellow dry bag contains wash kits, flip flops and towels (gf insisted on taking all kinds of creams unfortunately). Panniers and top case had all tools and camping equipment, then the tank bag contained electrical items (in dry bags) and water.
After a KTM 990 and a Super Tenere, I have gone to the world of BMW.
Did you not like the Super Tenre?
I did like the Tenere, but wanted something that felt lighter and had more ground clearance.
I also have an F850GS and I am looking to find good aluminum panniers. What are the name of those you have and how do you like them?
Great pictures btw
Those are Bumots. Absolutely the best panniers I have ever seen. You would not be disappointed if you got them.
Great, Thanks. What are the size of those you have? Do they fit the original BMW pannier racks?
They are the 40L/36L. They do not fit the original BMW racks. When you buy a set, they come with the specific racks for your bike. I got mine here: https://www.advmotorrad.com/. Fast shipping and great service.
18" on rear?
Just came back from my summer trip, North West Territories, Canada.
Yep, got a bit of snow at higher elevation in northern Alberta.
