  1. For crying out loud! 2wheelADV shamed me into doing this today. He washed his so I thought I'd rip off his brilliant and original idea... just kidding! It happens to be a good thing and I do actually clean my bag twice a year. The biggest thing with a tank bag I think is keeping the zipper clean. I clean it (Wolfman Blackhawk) twice a year and then put some candle wax on the teeth and that seems to keep it operating in good order. I've had tank bags last longer than motorcycles they rode on! Besides, the bag was quite dirty inside as well from stuff like melted chapstick, energy bars, goo, punctured tubes of rubber cement and quick steel, dirty ear plugs, etc... N A S T Y
  2. AltRider SYNCH Dry Bag The AltRider SYNCH (siNGk) Dry Bags are the culmination of 15 years of off-road camping experience, world traveling, and soft goods design, all rolled into a single easy-to-use and durable package. Each bag has a fully tape-seam sealed, D-shaped body construction made of 14oz vinyl coated fabric (“Truckers Tarp”). The SYNCH bags are designed to be 100% dust and waterproof, engineered to withstand the most extreme temperatures and wet weather over hundreds and thousands of miles of trails and roads. SYNCH was designed with accessibility and flexibility in mind. Each bag features daisy chains for easy lashing of camping gear like bed rolls and tents. There are four anchor points with high strength nylon D-rings for strapping the bags to the bike and for connecting bags to each other. All of the anchor patches are made from a military grade, waterproof and chemical resistant neoprene. Designed for quick entry, the side openings allow access to either of the bags two openings without having to release the tie-down straps. This holds true when the bags are stacked on each other as well. Each dry bag includes tie-downs, and the 25 and 38 liter include stacking straps. One end of the tie-down features a soft-loop style closure, perfect for attaching to crash-bars, trellis frames, luggage racks and other great tie-down points. The other end is a heavy duty, steel wire-gated military grade nylon snap-hook for securing to the bags. Features list: Wide-mouth roll-down opening with cinching straps 14oz waterproof and durable “truckers tarp” Military-spec neoprene on all anchor patches Tape-seam sealed construction for water and dust proof performance Daisy chain(s) for extra gear lash-points Nylon D-rings for tie-down and stacking options Custom tie-down straps (can be used as shoulder straps for portage) Custom stacking straps (for connecting to other bags and gear) 6 styles available; 14 Liter Black, 14 Liter White, 25 Liter Black, 25 Liter White, 38 Liter Black, and 38 Liter White
  3. We are fortunate that Eric Hougen of Wolfman Luggage has shown us some love for our project bike in the form of his wonderful water proof soft luggage! Wolfman has been around since 1992, is made in the USA and they basically know what they're doing. Many have come (and gone) as well as flattered them with imitation but there can only be one Wolfman. How do I know their products are waterproof? I used a Rolie bag on my two week Bolivia adventure and three of those days were on a boat in an Amazon rain forest camping in the jungles at night. Eric Hougen actually grew up in Bolivia, so he knows what I'm talking about here. I first met Eric at AltRider's Taste of Dakar back in 2013. I wish I had a picture of his sweet Super Tenere but all I have is this one of him (third from right) ogling Johnny Campbell's Honda Dakar Rally bike. So what are we getting set up with? Expedition Dry Saddle Bags (reviewed here) Large Rolie bag Blackhawk Tank bag Wolf Bottle Holster (2) I'm eager to get some photos of all this new gear on the project bike. Perhaps the week of Jul 20 Stay tuned...
  4. I saw a similar video for the Tenere 660 and since that bike isn't sold in the US and the GS/GSA is and have sold quite a few, I thought I'd do a similar video. The things I go over in this video really apply to just about any adventure bike. The key issue here for a lot of riders is what exactly do I need to do to my bike to outfit it for off-road riding? When I started out I had absolutely no clue and unfortunately wasted some time and even more money figuring all this out. I figure I can use my experience to save you money I have to say though that I honestly didn't know how much I'd enjoy riding my bike off-road when I first bought it. I figured it was just a means to an end, not an end in and of itself. However, these bikes don't exactly come dirt-ready off the showroom floor. There are some things you should do right away, some things before others given their importance and of course some things you really don't need to do. We've all seen that shiny sparkly bike at Starbucks all farkled up and you just know that thing has never seen anything more adventurous than a gutter in front of its driveway. Don't be that guy! The other thread here "Post your gear questions here" is more for the apparel side. This is the bike part of that same set of questions. I know it's long but if you're new to adventure riding or an experienced rider looking to explore more dirt, I think you'll find it helpful.

    The great tool-bag thread

    Show us your tool-bags and explain the what and why! Here, I'll start. This is for my G450X. OK... it's not really an XL bike :/ Gee! Here's how my pack looks like. This is the Wolfman Medium Rollie Bag with two Wolf Bottle Holsters. Let's start looking inside! Here's what fits in this baby: 1. Recovery bag 2. Flat tire bag 3. Misc items bag 4. Tools bag 5. Spare tubes for both front/rear 6. Zip ties (with several rubber bands) 7. Two MSR 30oz fuel bottles The recovery bag is just what I need for a z-pull/drag system. There are several sets out there but I wanted to make mine on my own. Did I mention I have mild OCD? It contains: 1. 52ft of accessory cord (6mm) 2. 2x oval non-locking carabiners 3. 2x Petzl pulleys 4. 2x Petzl Tibloc ascenders 5. The manual from the ascenders which will explain how to make a z-pull/drag system The flat tire bag, is a standard. However, here's what it has in detail: 1. Stop & go pump 2. Slime patch repair kit 3. 2x normal SHORT tire irons 4. Valve stem removal tool 5. Gloves The spare tubes, are in a ziplocl bag because try-to-put-them-in-the-bag-omg-they-wont-move-when-they-touch-the-wolfman-dry-material... Of course, a normal grocery bag would do as well. Just blame my OCD for the waste... My misc bag contains the following (I haven't included links for the obvious items): 1. Small mesh bag for the loose items (I got it from Michael's for like $1) 2. Eagle Creek bag (I'm mentioning it here since I'm using the same for everything) 3. Electrical tape 4. Electrical wire 5. Steel wire 6. Any kind of light 7. Quicksteel 8. Sandpaper 9. Emergency blanket (I remove the box after I took the pic) 10. Lighter 11. WD40 12. Camping tape I suggest this brand. This thing will hold anything! 13. Coffee filter (to pour water in the radiator) 14. Radiator Stop Leak 15. An extra sparkplug 16. Tweezers 17. Purifying water tablets Finally my tool bag. This took me the most time to gather. What I've been doing the last months, is using tools from my garage and every time I'm using something (for example a screwdriver or a 10mm hex socket), I'm taking a note and like that I assembled a list of all the tools I ever needed for my bike. In theory, I can bring the engine down with what I have in this bag. In theory. Of course, I don't know how... So for the G450X here's a list of the tools I used (no links of course) Hex sockets: 8mm, 10mm, 11mm, 17mm, 22mm, 30mm Hex bits: 3mm, 4mm, 8mm, 12mm Wrenches: 11mm, 12mm Tools: Leatherman, flat screwdriver, philips screwdriver, ratchet, extensions, adapters And ALL of these items with fuel included, under 20lbs (12.5kgs for our Metric friends)! In addition to all of these, when I'm on my dirt-bike, I always carry: Water Snacks My poop-bag (laugh all you want, I want to see you taking a sh!t and wiping with leaves) Phone / InReach Very small 1st aid kit Let us see yours!
  6. I was going to start the thread with a I've been doing a lot of LDR lately (Long Distance Riding, duh!) and I need more gas crap, but to be honest, I love how the extra fuel canister looks on my bike. The problem I had is that I didn't want to the rotopax to be on the sides or the back but on top of the side aluminum cases. Right under my Wolfman rollie bags. But there was no way to strap them properly so I had to improvise. Total cost of project: $15 Total man hours spent: 1 Total beers consumed: 3 Industrial Revolution Vanilla Porter (I love living in CO) Enjoy! Your standard ADV side case Your standard BMW straps Using the Wolfman rollie alone with the straps: perfect! Using the Wolfman rollie and the rotopax with the straps: disaster! The rotopax will just fly away with the slightest bump. The solution: Footman Loops for next to nothing (here) I also needed some STAINLESS STEEL hardware as well as some pieces of an old bicycle tube Marking the “G” spot Measurements because OCD Am I actually drilling a hole on my sidecar? I wonder if this will void the warranty… The tube will help the water to stay out (in theory) Screw -> hook -> washer -> tube in this order Thank the OCD for measuring… How did I make it crooked? Screw tight (boom, phrasing!) Cut the edges. Final product And here’s the magic! Yes, these are the original straps that came with my bike… This rotopax, won’t go anywhere! Not bad, right? Best thing, I can still open my side cases with everything on them! Now I’m ready to go to my local Starbucks. Oh wait, I’ve got extra fuel! I can go to the one across town!! WOOHOO!!!!
  7. Motomachines came to us and graciously offered to help out with our project bike! They are the nation's main distributor for Hepco & Becker products, as well as Ermax molded plastic parts (among many other products). Brown Santa recently delivered us: Engine guards Headlight guard
  8. I really hope these do get made, as they look at the perfect combination of features from hard luggage (secure) and soft luggage (light and flexible). I see their Kickstarter is not getting as much traction as it should (lack of awareness I'd guess) so I thought of sharing it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1127259949/tark-flexible-motorcycle-panniers-for-adventure-ri (watch this from 1:20)

  11. So I ordered the Wolfman Rocky Mountain Saddle Bags yesterday and I haven't had the rack on since the showroom floor. Now that they're installed again, I realize they won't work with the bags.. [​IMG] My question is, I don't have any metal work experience, can I just have someone weld up some pieces to complete the rectangular shape? Is this metal workable? I'm tight on cash and buying a new rack system won't fly with the wife right now. That curve shape isn't going to work as a mounting point. What I was thinking is have someone weld up some pieces make it a even surface to mount the bag on. If I do that, guess I can never use hard cases. Any other suggestions? Maybe put some type of safety kit between the wolfman bag and that space?

  13. BMW has released a new line of their own soft luggage for just about their entire GS line of bikes (650, 700, 800, 1200) called the Atacama. I would encourage you to read more about these new bags at the official press release here My first reaction is good for BMW. They've had the hard luggage for a long time (which I had on my '11 GSA) and this move to soft luggage is very much "Beyond Starbucks" which I wholeheartedly approve of. What I think is most interesting though is the story behind the story; Mosko Moto. They are the ones BMW is sourcing their Atacama line from and that's huge news for a small company with strong ADV cred out of tiny White Salmon, WA. Let's be honest, BMW is really only making motorcycles and not most of the associated farkles. Many new riders (like myself at one time) have absolutely no clue what gear to buy after we purchase our bike and BMW tries to leverage that in-dealer point of purchase to capture a bit more profit for themselves and their dealer network. In case you weren't aware, Touratech makes BMW's hard panniers. Forma boots makes their Rallye 3 boots (the Forma Dominator Comp). Although I didn't have the best luck with my BMW boots, they typically do stuff like this pretty well. Truly a Cindererella story for Mosko Moto.
  14. Can I hit someone now? With those drum sticks? These are apparently some new, cool panniers. How I know that is because they say so: "The product is cool and versatile..." Ooo-kay. So there's that. "These aluminum boxes are cooler and more versatile than ever before." Basically. What I'd really like to know is just what makes these new panniers so cool and versatile. I mean, it's not like Touratech doesn't know how to make panniers. They are quite good. This just left me like a petite cuisine appetizer after a long ride... wanting more. Are they better than the Zega Pro series pannier? Why? How? Are they lighter, stronger, bigger, more durable? Your guess is as good as mine. I tell you what really got me interested was the riding in the video! Those guys, Paul Guillien and Iain Glynn, clearly know what they're doing and look like they're having a great time (with aftermarket Touratech shocks no doubt). Here's that video And the presser https://ultimatemotorcycling.com/2015/02/25/touratech-zega-mundo-beat-to-a-different-drum-video/

  17. I've been wondering who uses a top box, and why. I've been toying with the idea of buying one for the Stelvio but can't seem to pull the trigger. I don't feel that I would actually use it on the trail and it would be a purchase for "looks" only. I currently use a wolfman dry bag for the large stuff, tent, sleeping pad, ETC. that straps to the luggage rack and a portion of the seat. The bike came equipped with panniers but not the top box which is available as an accessory. My thought is that the box would be inconvenient mounting and dismounting the bike in everyday riding and not sufficiently large enough to store the equipment I'm using the dry bag for. Looking for input...
  18. Has anybody ever used Jesse Luggage panniers, Made in Gilbert AZ. Thoughts or Ideas. Tried stopping by their shop but they were closed. Sorry just a cut and paste job.

  19. The solution for carrying more cargo on BMW adventure bikes Sandpoint, ID, December 18, 2015 - Black Dog Cycle Works (BDCW) announces their new BDCW Pillion Rack for BMW R1200GS and GSA Liquid-Cooled motorcycles. For solo adventure riders, a great solution for carrying more cargo is to replace the passenger seat with an integrated rack. BDCW's new rack puts the additional weight immediately behind the rider where motorcycles were originally designed to carry it, making it the ideal location. By moving the weight forward from the rear of the bike, riders should expect greatly improved balance and control. The BDCW Pillion Rack is a highly functional, rugged yet beautifully-machined product that greatly increases the carrying capacity of the Big GS. And, it works especially well with the BDCW Multi-Function Rear Rack for the GSLC or GSA-LC, but is compatible with most rear racks from other manufacturers, as well as the factory grab rails on the standard GS and GSA. Avid adventure riders will appreciate how the BDCW Pillion Rack mounts to their bikes. "Unlike other versions on the market, we intentionally engineered our rack so that it doesn't use the mostly plastic stock keyed release system. We found that the stock release doesn't take to the off-road punishment many of our customers give their bikes. Ours bolts directly to the frame." says Kurt Forgét of BDCW. The BDCW design has several notably unique features and benefits: A great compliment for the BDCW Multi-Function Rear Rack for either the GS-LC or GSA-LC Made of industrial grade gauge 1/4" aluminum Bolts to the frame for solid mounting-designed to take a beating while securely hauling gear Quick and easy removal with four bolts to replace the passenger seat Generous-sized perimeter holes give multiple tie-down points for gear Compatible with the factory grab rails for both the standard GS and the GSA. Anodized hard black for a durable finish Spacers and stainless steel hardware provided Approximately 12" wide x 14" long Designed, tested and manufactured in the U.S.A. MSRP: $195.00

  21. SAN FRANCISCO, CA – November 4, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Restless Travellers, creators of Wheelrider, today launched its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Wheelrider is revolutionizing motorcycle top-cases with a contemporary design and multi-functional purpose. Wheelrider has merged two essential items into one for riders who are always on the move. A motorcycle top-case that becomes carry-on luggage on wheels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4_59Nmd8Ko With a built in solar panel, Wheelrider is also equipped with a direct USB port to attach a standard cable that lets users charge their phones, tablets, or a spare power bank. This is an important function for riders who need to stay connected on the road for safety and fun. The creator of Wheelrider saw a need for a top-case that was modern, convenient, multi-functional and aesthetically pleasing. “After years of traveling on my motorcycle and dealing with suitcase trolley problems on road trips, we set out to create something that every rider can use while they are on tour,” said Stefano Mangini, creator of Wheelrider and avid motorcycle rider. “I created a new ultra-tough luggage dock system that is versatile, looks great and can be used as a travel carry-on case with wheels.” Wheelrider has a diverse mounting plate that attaches to the rack of the motorcycle, and can host additional accessories such as a pouch containing a helmet and seat covers, as well as a built in helmet lock. The contemporary design has interchangeable tops that allows riders to choose the size of their case depending on their needs – including the proper size for overhead bins for use as an airplane carry-on. Wheelrider comes in a variety of colors, including night blue, ice grey, and deep red – finally bringing color and beauty to the traditionally dull top-cases currently on the market. “We have created a new generation of modular top-cases that will transform the function, style and versatility of motorcycle top-cases forever,” added Mangini. Wheelrider is available on Kickstarter starting at discounted early bird price of $190. For more information, and to pre-order Wheelrider, visit: Kickstarter. About Restless Travellers and Wheelrider The idea behind Restless Travellers is about creating modular products for people in motion. It was inspired by a journey from Shanghai to Italy by motorcycle. This trip identified a need to solve problems for travelers and people that are on the move and that need modularity, by combining different functions into one convenient product. Restless Travellers has a goal to improve the way we move and see this world, and Wheelrider is a great product for this goal. INTERIOR: The interior is designed for a professional traveler. The middle section features utility pockets and a computer compartment that has the option to be removed for additional storage space. DIMENSIONS: Flight carry-on: 45cm/25cm/39cm. Fit your helmet: 45cm/30cm/39cm THE LOCK: The lock that secures the top case to the base attached to the bike, has been developed based on the technology used for fuel tanks caps. The lock is made of metal and uses a new generation of keys for extra security. DURABILITY: The base is made of ABS, by injection molding. ABS provides the correct balance between strength and elasticity, preventing cracks under continuous vibration. SPECIAL FEATURES: Waterproof, built-in Solar Panel, available in pure carbon fiber.
