You guys really need to get out of this "domestic" mindset. It's a big world out there.
Agreed.

You could probably get a hint from my sig line that I'm not a native here. Advrider is an international forum. As for UKGSer- the name says it all.

MsLizVt- thanks a lot for the pictures!

How do you send a PM on UKGSER system? I have signed up but there does not seem to be away to send a PM to the builder of the brace. With time I could build one but I would rather spend the money to buy it. Not that I have a lot of money.

As with several forums, the PM facility is reserved for Forum Sponsors. The cost is currently 12 Pounds Sterling per year.

Here's a link to FOOTMAN LOOPS

In case you, too, like these loops for the Varios...

I know its not rocket science. But those blank spots looked like they were waiting for Footman loops.




I put fender washers on the inside. As long as you don't try to animal the straps down with anything heavy, they should be ok. I only plan to put a tent, duffel or small gas can there. It should be ok.

My Vario mods: shelf and Velcro

I use my LH case as more of a fixed-storage space as I haven't yet used my bike for a multi-day road trip (noob - I know!)

My main issue was just organizing the stuff I wanted to carry: tools, air compressor, first aid kit, papers, without a jumbled mess in the case.

My solution was to add a removable Lexan shelf at the top:




My tools are split between three zippered bags (Home Depot special!) that Velcro on the shelf or against the back panel.

I liberally applied Velcro strips all around to secure my various bits. The only permanent mod to the case were the mounting brackets for the shelf. They are simply those L-shaped brackets with a round pin used for adjustable shelving. I drilled round holes in the shelf for the pins and pop-riveted the brackets to the Vario case. I can easily remove the shelf, but haven't needed to do so yet. The shelf is notched to leave the Vario arm free to swing.

Not too elaborate, but it works for me.

This arrangement also allows you to open the Vario without removing the bungee cords.

I might add those loops too. I am very happy with what I did. But more tie down spots is a good thing.

John Smallberries an I are on the same page when dealing with the hot box. I have bag liners for both bags. But the hot side ends up being mutiple small bags and tool wraps instead for a liner bag. Its just easier. I doubt I will ever get around to using both liner bags ever.

Not very exciting, but .....

Besides the already mentioned OEM Enduro bolt kit from BMW for the topcase, I added this mirror. The SO and my daughters love it for helmet hair and I like it because it is easier to shave using this than the rearview mirrors.

This is a sunvisor mirror that I got from Kragens and just added some double sided tape to stick it to the cover ...



BTW ... the Enduro kit really stopped my worring about the top case ever falling off ....
