Here at Gateway BMW, we love riding, and we love helping other people get out and ride. We have, for the past few years, offered our customer's used gear on a consignment basis on a major auction site, but I've convinced the boss to let me offer it to ADVRiders first, before posting it to the masses. We will be posting gear in this thread as it comes in the door, and as such some of it might have some bugs or the odd stain. Call Gateway BMW at (314) 427-9090 and ask for Mark or Jeff. Paypal and major credit cards accepted. ________________________________________________________ In addition to the used gear... We have improved BMW's Atacama Soft Bag System by ELIMINATING their wedge plate mount and substituting a mount system we're calling the Akalaka Mount System -- where you can switch from soft to hard bags quickly, easily, and without any wrenching! Let me demonstrate. Plates alone are $425 for the set. Plates with the same locks your ADV bags have are $697. Plates, bags (25/35l set), locks are $1335. FAQ: 1) What is the weight difference between these and the standard BMW/Mosko plate setup? Bags and Mosko wedges weigh 19.35lbs, Version 2.0 of the Akalaka gets that weight to 21.8lbs 2) Will these fit an F850GSA? Nope, not version 2.0, but 3.0 is coming! They are designed for the current generation R1200GSA. The new F850GSA racks are just so slightly different as to just need a trim to fit, and that's what 3.0 will incorporate. 3) Can I use these with other bags? These will work perfectly with Mosko Moto Backcountry 35 Panniers, as well as working well with many other softbags such as Giant Loop Rocky Mountain and RTW bags, even Ortlieb bicycle panniers have been adapted! ________________________________________________________ Update Nov 19 Our Fox Hill R1200GS Skidplates are being closed out for just $199! We are losing our ass on this but we just need to get rid of the 1200 parts. The new 1250 plates are under development. Call Mark at 314-427-9090 for the closeout price. Fox Hill Moto is a local custom parts maker, and we are now carrying their Skidplates for watercooled GS bikes. They are made of aluminum, with aluminum and steel mounting hardware. They fit nice and tight to the header and bottom of the engine, and have a drain hole for oil changes. These plates mount at six points - to the frame at the rear, and the crash bar mounts up front. They do not use the stock mounting points. Pretty bomber plate, if you ask me...$450 plus shipping.
