No problem. I ordered this bag on Tuesday morning. Ground shipping from NorCal takes only two days to Utah. I'll bet it's about the same to Oregon.

Order it tomorrow and it'll be there Monday!!

Cortech 6.5 Mini. Not much fits in it but it is very handy:

I really like that Wunderlich! I'm so glad somebody figured out the mounting. I hate the look of straps going down the side of the bike. I think it is just so fugly!

Why don't I just put handle bar streamers on instead of hand guards! While I'm at it I can add....oh never mind!

Don't be shy, step up and hand them your credit card.

I couldn't stop at just the tankbag, added a headlight guard in too.

yeah I like the headlight guard too. I think being able to flip it down making cleaning a breeze is cool!

I've been waffling over the various headlight guards, but this one's looking like the best. Wire can still let rocks thru and you can clean this one easy. Too bad I already dropped a wad with Wunderlich on Vario levers and their shift lever (very nice, by the way).

On the tank bag front, I've always liked Wolfman, never liked two-part mounts, and am going with the Rainier.

For those of you considering headlight guards, and favoring the flip-down Wunderlich because you believe that it'll be easier to clean, I can tell you that I have no trouble at all getting my fat hand encased in one of those sheepskin mitts in between the headlight and the Touratech guard. And yeah, I suppose a golden BB could get through the wire mesh with enough mass and velocity to crack the glass, but I'm not going to lose any sleep worrying about that unlikely event.

David, I have the same TT headlight guard and you are 100% correct. Lot's of room to wash the lens/also have the TT hand guards as well. They both look better on the yellow bike tho.

I do like the gnarly look of the wire protectors, but didn't think I'd be able to get behind it to clean easily enough which is why I went for the flip down one. Now I find out that it is possible even with hands like a bunch of bananas.

No worries though cause my yellow GS is all ready gnarlier than a wussy grey one

So I ordered a Wolfman Rainer (and rain cover) from an in-state retailer - 3 weeks ago!

I like that Cortech bag, I've got other pieces by them and they are pretty well made. Right now I'm using one of their tail packs instead of a tank bag.

Does anyone know more about the tank panniers on Doris Wiedemann's bike pictured earlier in the thread? They look like thy would block the outlets for the radiator, which a problem with most setups I have imagined so far. I've tried fitting several pairs of bags I've got lying around and haven't found the answer yet.
