The specs seem to be identical to Rigid's so I wonder if they're made in the same factory. You need to specify if you want spot or flood.

does anyone want to go halves on a pair of these?
I only want one setup, I do 90% of my riding in the city
If i don't hear feedback i may just buy the pair and put one in the sale section..

Took off my BMW Vario cases and put on the Bumot 45L panniers and 7L toolkit.

I have to say this is one of the most professional looking and easy to install sets of panniers I have ever put on. I did have to move the turn signals back so they wouldn't interfere with the toolkit, but Bumot provides standoffs and there is plenty of wire available, so it's just a matter of removing the turn signals and relocating them.



The project was easy to do and the panniers are built extremely well! I give them two thumbs up!

On the bike (without my H&B top case)



Finished project with topcase:



One more view:



Up to now, I had to slide my 17" notebook w/case into the H&B topcase, but these panniers will allow the computer to fit into one. The overall with is 43 1/2-in, and while tighter than before, I can still get the GSA through the gate without taking off either of the new bags.

Just finished up the install of new front and rear Wilber's shocks! Biggest PITA was taking the fuel tank off for the front shock and removing the exhaust (aftermarket y pipe) to get on the back.
While I had the rear tire off went ahead and swapped out the worn TKC for a new one.

YEAH BABY ready to roll






no pics, sorry......................

Sorry to be negative, but I don't think those are well thought out at a wide load of 46 1/2" !!. That's dangerous and I made the same mistake myself (with the exact same bike and Shine Yellow color )and switched to Micatech at 38 ". Jesse bags are also well designed in that department. When you get your first close call, you may agree with me. If you think you're clear and your rear bags hit something, it's gonna hurt. Nice bags though.

We all have different needs and riding styles. Obviously those bags met his. No need to crap in the man's Cheerios...

Installed new Dispatch 1WIRELESS POWER DISTRIBUTION AND CONTROL system on my GS and RT (RT probably doesn't qualify for this thread, though).

Pictorial of the complete install will be posted later this upcoming week.
UPDATE 3/14/2013: Here's the 'pictorial' link: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=870449

In the meantime...more info at:

Here's my little edition...
I took a compass, a little Dremel tool work and mounted it to my brake reservoir cap with some double sided tape. One of the handiest little mods I've come up with.

Compass Mounting

I'm stealin' that idea. I had an automotive ball compass mounted to the windscreen bar for a while until I did some other stuff that crowded it out. I was never that happy with it and this mounting is way cooler. I usually put my old boy scout compass in my tank bag map pouch.

When looking for one...make sure the bottom is "solid"...some spin when you are dialing it around. I believe I bought a Brunton that did that....
This one was Suunto, if I remember.

Hope you like it as much as I have.
