Side Bags for Stelvio

Does anyone know what racks should I get for a 2010 Stelvio and what bags fit on which racks?
I'm partial to the OEM Stelvio side cases (Traxx aluminum side cases), but they're very expensive considering they're regular Traxx bags with a Stelvio emblem.

Thanks,
JJ

Look at twisted throttle...sw moto tech in the us. you can use the racks for pelican, trax or others.

After riding BMW's for so long, one of the things I'm really enjoying on this Stelvio is the conventional fork and how it responds to braking forces as well as its better, more compliant ride in general. The brakes on this bike are seriously stout by the way and when you squeeze the binders hard at high speeds it really hunkers down and stops in a hurry.

I didn't realize that I missed brake dive until I got the Stelvio. I think BMW's telelever is another example of their over engineering to eliminate a perceived problem that isn't. They then introduce other design compromises into the equation by doing so, such as a higher center of gravity and extra suspension structure where the fuel tank should be. Sometimes the simple way is the best way.

That Telelever really takes up a lot of space that otherwise could be used for the gas tank. Sitting on a GSA to me feels like sitting on a fat cow. When I was sitting on a Stelvio recently, I couldn't believe how narrow the bike was, considering the gas tank hold the same amount as GSA.

I actually prefer the front end feel with the telelever. I like how the bike "sits" instead of "dives" when you use the front brake. I seem more in control of the bike with the BMW front end.

Not that I've ridden the Stelvio, but compared to all the bikes I've had with conventional front ends...

+1

I know there are a lot of people out there who aren't fans of the Telelever, but I really liked the way the chassis of my GS handled over bumpy terrain, specifically bumpy/rutted/potholed tarmac. By not transmitting those inputs to the bars, I wasn't making corrections and upsetting the chassis. With conventional forks, mid-corner bumps/jolts result in an impact on my line as the bars move (and as I try to move them back, however small those changes might be), and here in CA where the ground/roads are constantly "moving", mid-corner nasties are the norm.

Since owning the BMW GS and now 2 Guzzis, I'd like to experience the "love child" from a BMW/Guzzi tryst where you end up with the Guzzi "guts" in the BMW chassis. That could be an interesting bike.

Lobby be careful.
The Stelvio or better Guzzis in general aren't for everyone. But if it is, it's a virus you'll never get rid of :)

As much as I like the Stelvio's handling, I also like the lack of dive on a telelever bike, especially going quickly downhill.

Not sure I have a preference, I put a ton of miles on an R1100S BCX and an R1150GS Adv as well as the Stelvio - they all worked really well.

Where are you finding side carrier racks for a Stelvio on these sites? I couldn't find anything.
