Update:

1.OEM panniers and top box. High quality build, moving mounts work, but they're quite heavy, and the right-left size difference leads to having to restrict weight on the left side. And...

Going out for a ride today. Probably MRR and surrounding areas. Maybe a fire road if I find one. Late start today, but leaving Sac in about an hour.

No I didn't, mine has a black frame!:D Thanks for the pics. It will get offroad eventually, of course. If V-stroms can, the Tiger can better.

That bike looks very similar to the Yamaha FZ6 (Fazer) and I would say not a great bike, especially for adventure touring. If you want a Honda I'd go for the updated Transalp, or the new NC700X, and...

I like this new Madstad "Explorer" screen with the clear wings. If it were all light grey, I think I'd buy that. Maybe I should give them a call.

Triumph Sympatex Light Jacket and/or Light Vest

I need cold/wet weather gear. I want the Sympatex Light jacket that has built in LED's, white front, red rear. But it's all black so the LED's are a night-only advantage. They have the same LED's in...

Ok maybe I used the wrong word. I know it's still a brilliant bike, but the regular is that much better on pavement in its quicker turn-in. Though, some prefer the slower turn-in of the XC. I'm sure...

Ok then let's hear your opinions! Also for the Vstrom do I want the ABS model? I know it can't turn off, so on dirt not so good. But for the 95% pavement riding of reality it would be good to have.

Budget is $5500 and I'm looking to buy a preowned, low(ish) mileage BMW RT or GS model, maybe even the naked R. They're all for sale around N Cal. I'm currently favoring the RT for combined commuting...

Those are more modern and not in my price range. If I was able to spend $10k or more I'd be looking at R1200RT/GS. For some reason the older K bikes with the brick are more appealing to me than the...

BMW R bike vs K bike

Hey all,

I've never had a BMW motorcycle but have wanted one for years. Normally, it was a GS bike, but I've wandered to other models based on my less than $7k price range (not many GS's). There's...
