    I recently picked up a Nelson-Rigg RG1050 Tail bag for the Tenere. It's a quality little bag perfect for day trip's and is just about a perfect fit for the B&B Compact rack. It's 6.5ltrs and expands up to 11ltrs, it's big enough to fit a spare helmet visor plus a bunch of other crap in.

    The only issue is that it needs to be loosened off and slid back to get the pillion seat off.

    yep, can be a mixed bag heading up that way.
    Never a drama on my DR,
    but on my GSA it’s a pain stopping or passing on the far left with short legs, depending on conditions, if there’s 4wd traffic.
    I can only tippy toe one side at a time on the GSA and the left side, that way, sux.. :baldy
    Just easier to go up to Mt mee by blacktop and then in for a break.

    I know where you took that picture mate. Used to tow our 250s to that point with a HQ V8 Premier and leave the car and trailer there. Was a magic place to ride.

    Probably now a three finger job instead of two, I put some sintered pads in and made it a little bit better, plenty good enough for me.
    Unbolted it.

    Then just took the brake hose from the RH side and fitted it to the LH calliper.

    :hmmmmm Just saw the daggy old hat wearing farmer in the pic.:fpalm
