It can, and will be buying one from Triumph. The bags from Caribou are already drilled and ready to mount.

Took a spin through the Marlborough Forest after work. Lots of puddles, but nothing deep. I am glad I had the dealer put the k60s on over the Pirellis! Little greasy in spots.

Looks awesome,
Thought I noticed you had the K60 on there in some of the other pics.
I did the same when I bought my F8, I had them take back the 95/5 tires... I think they were Pirelli's too. I bought the GS so I could take it off the slab so put appropriate tires right off the get-go.

Nice pick on the cases... I've been going through a similar dilemma... I like the SW-Motech rack because they can come right off quickly for when you want to do some dual sporting. It does make a difference, when you add up all the parts (like I did today) it came close to 51 lbs with hardware for TT rack systems and empty aluminium cases. WOW! Insane.

Thanks!

In the limited slop I have run them, the K60 are confidence inspiring.

The HB rack that comes with the Caribou package can be partially removed for the trail too, maybe not as easily as the SW, but it can.

Quote:
- Super strong Hepco Becker “Lock-It” side luggage racks - the best fit and most durable side racks available. Remove most of the rack in a few short minutes leaving behind small unobtrusive attach plates.
Weight and cost is what drove me to Caribou. I hope to have them on Monday, so I will post some pics then.

You will like the wear on the K60's... I run them on my Africa Twin (which I think is heavier) with Touratech Racks and Zega's (heavy) and I have 12k on them now.. the rear is done now, but I could probably get another 4 k out of it if I was a cheap fucker... It's too bad about the price of them in Canada, as I will not be buying them here.

Ya, I am a big fan of the Heidenau brand. I run the K37 on my Ural, and they only last 4k-7k on the pusher. If I can get 12K or more on the Triumph, I will be satisfied. I can always drop down to the US to buy them if I have to...

Hey Guys.

I am not sure if this is old news to everyone, but I just wanted to post this for you guys who travel to the US on bike trips, or whatever, and pay Rogers/Bell/Tellus exorbitant fees for txt, talk and data.

http://www.roammobility.com/

I am not affiliated in anyway, but I am buying a SIM for my next bike trip south.

Cheers!

Free to a good home...

I just took off a Happy Trails centre stand from my 2011 DL650...

Free* to a good home in the Ottawa area, since I'm not willing to ship it anywhere.

* by free I mean that I would accept a 6-pack of Mill Street Tankhouse....

Now that I have my glasses on, I see it's for a DL. We have DRs. Oh well.

~+6 was the high today but I managed about 200 km. 181 to be exact. Down to Iroquois and back by back roads and rail trail.



That heated gear made a real difference.

Weren't many bikes out; no idea why.

Went by Beach/Rock there and back. Woulda stopped, Ted, but riding takes priority.

Warm and Safe gear is really good quality, reasonably priced and they give an ADVRider discount through the Vendors thread.
