    39976301-D521-4A4C-885B-FCE6F99AA171.jpeg Picked up this little gem about 10 days ago. If anyone is looking for a Corbin or BMW GS tank bag for one these let me know. Shipping the tank bag shouldn’t be to bad, but Corbin seems to reenforce their seats with concrete.

    Now to find an Airhead crew down here up to y’all’s standards.

    Congrats! Nice looking BumbleBee. How many miles?
    I've always liked the BumbleBee look. Even looks like it came with straps to hold the luggage closed!

    Be safe!

    It is missing the key tumbler for that bag latch. Ordered tumbler today coded to original key code today so the strap can come off. Has 59k miles with a fairly extensive service record. Originally purchased from Ft Worth BMW. I have serviced the sidecar rigs the owners son inherited when he passed away. Lots of stuff still available for these bikes and the riding experience is amazing.

    I suggest you maintain a safety strap of some sort. I’ve seen several bags take leave of their framework.
