    GS Trophy 2015 - West

    A lot of guys were smart enough to use their throttle lock. I followed their lead, I couldn't have made it through without it because of my Rekluse clutch.

    I rocked the rope challenge! Unfortunately the rope touched the ground twice so I got 0 points!

    Touratech USA ZegaPro Pannier System

    Touratech-USA Zega Pro Panniers are a great option for luggage on Adventure Motorcycles. They offer an extremely durable design coupled with great usability, plenty of features, and great looks! One of my favorite features is the ability to open the lid either direction, or completely remove it. The latches double as hinges on both sides. It is very useful if you have a dry bag strapped to the top of the lid, or a dry bag hanging off the side of your luggage rack. The only issue I have found is closing the lids can sometimes be difficult, especially if the Panniers have been warped from a fall. The lid has to line up perfectly or it will not latch properly. I believe this has been addressed on the new Zega Pro 2 Pannier system.

    Touratech Zega Pro panniers have provided secure dry storage for adventure riders the world over. The body and removable lid feature rounded lines with rugged corner protection that is easily replaceable. Low profile anchor loops provide a flat surface that makes the pannier a good seat at the campfire. Crafted with 1.5mm aluminum and welded/stainless steel rivet construction these sturdy panniers are available in 31 and 38 liter sizes. Structure: The Touratech mounting system is the strongest in the industry with German-built 18mm diameter tube racks with 2mm thick sidewalls that form a rectangular "hoop" on both sides of the bike to support the panniers. The Innovative cross-braced rack system bolts directly to the motorcycle sub-frame transferring the pannier load directly to the bikes chassis. Mounting systems from other manufacturers emphasize a "minimalist" look when the boxes are off the bike. The sacrifice, inherent with those designs, is the compromised safety and reliability that often results in critical failures. Pannier racks are available in electro-polished stainless steel, or standard black powdercoated steel. Quick Removal: Touratech Zega Pro panniers attach to the steel mounting racks using heavy-duty composite and steel mounting brackets in four locations. This design offers a very secure fitting and can be quickly released to take the boxes off Waterproof: All Touratech panniers have a deep groove aluminum interface with silicone seal. This provides dust proof and waterproof storage even in driving rain and water crossings. Some pannier makers cut corners with a plastic interface between the lid and box. This creates a weak link and often results in breakage and water intrusion. Dual function latch: This latch will function as release or hinge. It allows quick access by releasing one side while the other functions as a hinge. Release both latches for complete lid removal for easy packing or lid use as a utility tray for camping. Security: A spring loaded safety latch ensures that the lid stays closed and its discrete location enhances security. Add a set of optional Integral Locks to each pannier for even more security. Dimensions: The overall width of the 31/38 liter system is 41.5 inches. The high ground clearance of the boxes allow you to negotiate sections of deep sand or ruts. The high ground clearance also helps with cornering at speed. Complete set with panniers, rack, and mounting hardware Available in bare aluminum, anodized silver, or anodized black Available in 31 & 38 liter sizes Easy installation Made in Germany by Touratech Panniers made from 1.5mm aluminum with welded and stainless steel rivet construction Electro-polished stainless-steel or Black powdercoated steel racks Bottle carriers, seat pads, inner bags, and many other accessories available Replaceable corner protection Total system width: 31/38L= 41.5 inches ***Source*** www.touratech-usa.com

    BMW F800 GS 2013

    I have had my 2013 BMW F800GS since September of 2012, and have since put 25k miles on it (and counting). It has proved to be a true all-rounder that excels at every task you put it to. Whether it is commuting, canyon carving, eating up freeway miles, packed to the brim for camping, single track, or fire roads, it seems to always be in its element. The only real complaint I have is the stock suspension, and it could use a little more POWER. For most people it is probably adequate. The specs can be deceiving, because it is an extremely versatile little Rotax with power and torque in every nook and cranny of the rev range. However, when you load it up with gear and try to do freeway speeds up steep inclines you can definitely feel the limitation. Other than that, my bike has been absolutely trouble free!

    Fuzeblock FZ-1 Power Distribution Block

    I am going to give this a solid review because I believe it does everything it is intended to do for a very affordable price. The wiring harness (sold separately) makes installation a no brainer. It even includes a good quality Posi-Tap connector to tap into your switched positive. The only thing I feel could be improved is the size, the terminals (especially for the main leads to the battery), and the weatherproofness. Other than that it is a great product that has lasted on my BMW F800GS for over a year of what I like to call "torture testing."
