You should either have me move this to rockies or start another post there.

Well, it wasn't a rally goer, as the rider was headed west from Denver.

The lock has been picked and there was nothing inside to ID the owner, other than the personal items inside the bag.. Looks to be an 1150RT or similar bag. The touring emblem wasn't typical on bags other than for RT's if I remember correctly



So, if you know someone who was headed west and arrived with only a left hand bag, send em here for contact info.

Jim posted this on the KLRforum and I'm just helping.. :)

I had Touring logos on a similar looking case on an R1100S
However when I replaced the lids with the narrow ones I was also advised that US bikes would normally mount a reflector there.

There is also a BMW gathering going on this week in Salida, Colorado. It could belong to someone heading there also.
I think this has been posted on a number of forums, so if they ever look at the forums.

He said “many of the riders ride quiet bikes” and the rally is dedicated to being as respectful to the community as possible.

SHHHHHHHHHHHH.

JJ, I posted in the Rockies forum first. I asked where else I should post. This forum was mentioned so I posted here.

Move it if you want. Just seems to me a "parallel universe" (whatever that is) rider might know a "oilhead" (whatever that is) rider who lost a pannier.

I picked the lock. I work on locks for a living. The items in the bag would have been taken if somebody was there before me (they are worth many hundreds possibly thousands of $).

Drugs eh?

My R1150 R came with the touring emblems and so did my R1150 GS. Either was optional. I rarely see the reflectors fitted, so it could be from any sort of R1150 I guess. If it was a left with the exhaust cut-out it would narrow the model range. The bags tend to get lost when people forget to check that the 'foot' has engaged the moulded tabs on the bag properly. The extra movement just pops the handle lock on a bump and the bag sails away. Either that or there is bike off the side off the road somewhere near where you found the bag!

Nice to see that you have done the good deed to try and track down an owner. Hope you have success.

def, nothing illegal and I won't tell or give hints until the owner is found and then only if he/she wants them to be made public.

Still no contact from the owner.

I know what was in there...

He said it was worth...100's even 1000's!

My guess: A RECEIPT for an annual service at the dealer!

Good on ya mate...keep hunting for the owner.
