Hey guys & gals.

Good to find a thread looking at the G.

I am in the process of getting off the Buell XB12R to a Tiger 800XC, but the smaller half is eyeing off the G to trade the Buell 9S in for. On road I would not want anything else, but we find that as we travel the tarmac, we tend to look sideways down the dirt tracks and start to yearn.

So change is a happening!

I always research, and I have found with the GGS, there does not appear to be a great deal of gear/accessories/aftermarket for it. It is all aimed @ the F650 & F800.

So...

The lass does not want to carry A LOT of gear (*I do most of the hauling), and doesnt like the idea of panniers. So for storage this leaves 2 options - Tank and Rear.

The BMW tank looks like a good bit of kit, so that is a no brainer.

The issue is the rear. So far I am looking at 3 options:

Bags Connection Cargo Bag: http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...tview/922/845/
Dry Spec D28: http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...view/7025/845/ (I am looking at this AND the D38 for the Tiger)
KRIEGA US-30 - http://www.kriega.com.au/bikepacks?p...&category_id=7

Some of it will be get the bike and go to the shops and fit. Wondering if anyone HAS tried these products??

But I am keen to see what else people have fitted to their bikes (guards,pegs,protection, communication) etc etc

CHAOS.
