Here's Bone Head's low seat, I like it, I'm going to get one. How's the comfort compared to the stock 2x4 seat? Is it sculpted the same way on the sides, it looks a fair bit lower:

You've added passenger foot pegs?! What did that setup cost ya? (I know they're off the X-Country) no passenger grab handles?

I too have added the lower seat. I can say IMHO it lowers the seat height by 1 to 2 inches (just from feel I have not measured it) and I think it is more comfortable. The seat is more flat and doesn't cut into you the way the stock seat does.

Where did you get the seat and what was the cost?

How expensive are those BMW Handguards?

and does any dealer in the US sell the Touratech-made farkles sold by BMW dealers exclusively at anything less than MSRP? I know BMW Chicago gives 20%, anyone else?

When I bought my X-Challenge 3 weeks ago, Cal BMW had a 3day 15%-off sale on all BMW accessories, so I loaded up on the X-Challenge accessories.

Is that a fin that rides in your butt crack, or am I seeing things?

Extra padding for a passenger! (notice the passenger pegs) If you're riding solo and you're sitting that far back, your front end will wash out sooner than later

Just what I was looking for, quality soft luggage from a familiar company providing quality bike specific luggage:

Wolfman luggage is developing the following:

Headlight Bag

Enduro Tank Bag
Small Timberline type Duffle
Alfa Beta Duffle (this one is neat as it has a stiffener in it so it does no droop at the sides)
and there's more..... stay tuned...

GB, do you have any better photos of the tank bag?
Will it fit the X-Country?
