    Protect your KTM's frame from wear and keep your boots from catching with these rugged guards from Touratech. Made of high-strength black plastic, the easy-to-install guards give your enduro boots something to rub on other than your frame's paint. This will keep your KTM 1090, 1190, or 1290 looking great for years to come. Sold as a pair. (left and right sides both included)
  2. 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.

    Touratech developed this windscreen adjustment design in 2005 for their Desierto fairings. This method was tested on the YAMAHA Super Tenere when the bike was released in 2010 and resulted in increased comfort for the rider. The ingenious and simple arrangement of hand-tightened knobs allows infinite windscreen adjustments. For example you might place the windscreen upward and forward for longer trips. Moving the screen forward allows some air to come in below the windscreen, smoothing the turbulence around the rider's head noticably. In this way your motorcycle behaves as if it has a larger windscreen, without disturbing the appearance of the bike. As an added bonus, our design includes a GPS mounting bar to position your Touratech GPS mount over the motorcycle's gauges in the line-of-sight. > Easy installation > Adjustable in height and angle > Provides GPS mounting location > Integrates with stock Yamaha windshield > Fits Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z up to 2013 > Does NOT fit 2014 and newer models

    The wide, grippy, high ground clearance design of the Works foogpegs is specifically engineered for street and off road touring on your BMW GS model motorcycle. These "Works" foot pegs were designed specifically for the needs of long distance touring and off-road riding on your BMW GS. The serrated claw design of the peg has plenty of grip for off-road riding, but the teeth are rounded on top so they won't tear up your nice touring boots. The 52mm (2 inch) wide peg offers tons of stability when standing on up on the pegs, and support when sitting down on the street. The open design of the pegs allow clay, mud, and rocks to fall through, keeping your traction no matter what the weather or terrain. You'll never need to worry about slipping off your BMW's pegs when they're wet or muddy. The low profile design of the pegs allow more ground clearance than most other aftermarket footpegs. The chamfered bottom edge will give you more room for clearing ruts, rocks or stumps when riding off road. Their bright stainless steel finish with laser inscription will stay looking nice for as long as they're mounted on your motorcycle. If you would like a lower footpeg, order the low version Works peg, part number 044-5136. NOT compatible with 2013-on Water Cooled R1200GS Models, order part # 045-5315 52mm (2") wide x 3.5" long Claw profile that is kind to your boots Perfect combination of grip and self-cleaning Designed for better ground clearance Strengthened mounting point Blasted surface finish and laser inscription Made in Germany by Touratech Fits BMW R850GS, R1100GS, R1150GS, R1150GS Adventure, R1200GS, R1200GS Adventure, R80GS, R100GS, F800GS (all years), F700GS, F650GS TWIN,F650GS Single / Dakar), G650GS / Sertao NOT compatible with 2013-on Water Cooled R1200GS Models, order part # 045-5315

    Touratech USA Extreme Rear Shock

    1 review

    We let the mad-scientists build the shock of their dreams with this product. When we asked for the absolute highest performance shock they could imagine, they developed the Touratech Extreme Shock. If NASA built suspension for the R1200GS they’d be happy with this one. You know the feeling… you see a pot hole last minute and feel the force of the hit radiate through your body as your shock bottoms out. Well, the Touratech Extreme Shock has advanced technology to make bottoming out a thing of the past. This shock has a secondary compression dampener that goes into action when your shock approaches the end of its stroke. Combine this PDS “bottoming control technology” with a remote reservoir, fully adjustable high-speed and low-speed compression dampening, adjustable rebound dampening, remote reservoir, low friction seals and 50% more preload adjustment than other shocks on the market and you begin to see why this is the shock of choice for R1200GS or GSA riders who want the ultimate in touring performance.

    A rock thrown up into your bike's radiator from another vehicle or motorcycle can be a trip ending event if you don't have the proper protection. The Touratech stainless steel radiator guards will protect your vulnerable radiators from impacts that can damage one of the most vital components of your bike's engine. These stainless guards are laser cut to exacting standards and feature louvered fins with air-flow ports that have been engineered to deliver the maximum volume of air to the cooling system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=84359240&v=OrDDG5ZyeEs&x-yt-ts=1421782837

    Touratech USA Explore HP Rear Shock

    http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/126/PN-044-5880X/Touratech-Explore-HP-Rear-Shock-BMW-R1200GS-Adventure Touratech Suspension Features VideoThis video shows the features for each of the different levels of Touratech Suspension shocks. Why Touratech Suspension? Touratech Suspension is the world’s first purpose-built shock absorber for long-distance touring with a fully-loaded motorcycle. Right out of the box, it has the strength, features and adjustments to go the distance on your R1200GS or GSA hauling luggage. The Touratech Explore HP shock is over-built by design with heavy-duty materials, over-sized components, 50% more spring pre-load adjustment, and adjustable rebound dampening that’s tuned for optimal performance with a fully-loaded motorcycle. With an Explore HP shock, the preload can be quickly adjusted by turning the knob with your hand. It’s recommend to upgrade to an Explore front shock, when you upgrade the rear shock on your R1200GS or GSA. Click HERE to see the Explore front shock. “I could not be more satisfied with my Touratech Suspension. It worked flawlessly for 15,000 miles on my journey from Seattle to the southern tip of Argentina. I now recommend it for my GlobeRiders clients and any adventure motorcyclist that is heading out on a serious ride.” –Helge Pedersen Why do I need this? Motorcycle Manufacturer’s Shocks - The shocks found on new motorcycles are designed to be inexpensive and fit the needs of the average 170lb rider with 15lbs of luggage. As a result, they often meet the minimum standard for function. The performance of a stock shock is typically not confidence inspiring. With heavy loads, stock suspension “bottoms out” easily and doesn’t have sufficient preload or damping adjustment range. They aren’t serviceable and, with heavy loads, are prone to blown-out seals and other failures. The rider often feels the bike is too spongy and doesn’t handle properly. Aftermarket Shocks - Most after-market shocks are made with performance riding in mind, but aren’t built for use on a fully-loaded R1200GS or GS Adventure. Most can only withstand the weight of the rider and don’t offer good handling, or have adequate preload adjustment. They also aren't durable enough to go the distance with a fully-loaded touring bike. How is Touratech Suspension Different? •50% more preload adjustment than other shocks on the market. A generous 15mm of adjustment allows proper pre-load set-up for a fully-loaded R1200GS or GSA. Most shocks have 8-10mm which is not enough to accommodate long-distance quantities of luggage or a passenger. The Explore HP shock offers a convenient preload adjustment knob which hydraulically changesthe preload setting of your bike to compensate for the addition of a passenger or luggage. •A floating piston separates the air and the oil to prevent oil foaming. This technology ensures that your shock will have smooth and consistent performance even in punishing environments. •Cold forged 6082 T6 aluminum shock body machined to exacting standards offers high-strength and maximum heat dissipation. •High-strength stainless steel bushings ensure the mounting points of the shock will go the distance. •Low-friction seal with integrated Teflon back-up ring maximizes performance and extends the life of the shock. •Oversized 16mm high-strength shaft made of chrome-moly steel for maximum strength and durability. •Available in a range of spring rates to match the rider’s weight requirements. •Dampening set up for fully-loaded R1200GS or GSA right out-of-the-box. Key issues to consider when selecting a shock Hydraulic Preload Adjustment -With a Touratech Explore HP shock, the spring preload can be adjusted hydraulically by turning the knob with your hand. If you don’t anticipate changing your preload often, the Explore shock may be an option since it costs less and offers all of the same features except the quick-adjust preload knob. 50% More Spring Preload Adjustment- When you load your R1200GS or GSA with luggage and all the gear for a weekend trip or extended tour, the bike will sag under the weight of the load. Most shocks are NOT designed to handle this. With Touratech Suspension, you can adjust the pre-load to bring the bike back to level. Because of the full 15mm of adjustment you can raise the back of the motorcycle as much as 1.8 inches to compensate for the load which restores proper geometry for optimum handling and overall feel of the bike. Most shock preload adjusters only have 8-10mm of adjustment which can only raise the back of the bike by 1.2 inches. Floating Piston Superiority – Touratech Suspension uses a Floating Piston design which offers the best dampening performance because it physically separates the nitrogen gas from the oil. Most shocks use oil emulsion dampening which allows oil to mix with the nitrogen gas in a foaming process that basically ‘thins’ the oil and prevents the shock from working properly. When the oil is 'foamed' the bike bottoms easily and also springs up too quickly resulting in erratic handling and an unsteady ride. With the floating piston design of Touratech Suspension there is a physical separation of oil and nitrogen gas which means you can ride rough roads all day long and enjoy consistent high performance. Why buy a shock whose performance gets worse the harder you ride it? Before you invest in new suspension for your R1200GS or GSA make sure it’s a floating piston design. Stainless Steel Bushings - While many aftermarket shocks use aluminum bushings where the shock mounts to the motorcycle, Touratech Suspension uses high-strength, non-corroding stainless steel. This creates a strong and rigid connection which is important for a loaded R1200GS or GSA. The stainless steel bushings protect against corrosion and seizing and offer low maintenance and longer life. Low-Friction Seal – Our seals have a backbone that virtually eliminates friction interference on the dampening activity. On other shocks, the seal deforms as dampening pressure increases and causes stiction on the shaft. Touratech Suspension is equipped with a proprietary low-friction seal that is supported by Teflon back-up ring. This Teflon backbone keeps the seal from deforming and eliminates stiction on the shaft even at high pressures. The result is better performance, increased reliability and longer service life, even in harsh environments. Oversized high-strength shaft – While most manufacturers use a 14mm carbon steel shaft, Touratech suspension uses a 16mm high-strength chrome-moly steel alloy. Aluminum Shock Body – Some manufacturers use a steel shock body to reduce cost. Touratech suspension uses cold-forged 6082 T6 aluminum for the shock body because it’s lightweight, strong and durable. It also dissipates heat 30% more effectively than steel, which results in more stable and predictable dampening delivering better handling and a smoother ride. A cooler shock will also have more consistent dampening and a longer service life. Adjustable Rebound Dampening – Right out of the box, this shock is ready for adventure with its rebound dampening levels set for touring on a fully-loaded R1200GS or GSA. The rebound dampening is also fully adjustable so the ride can be customized to your preferences. Custom Springs – Touratech Suspension is available in a range of spring rates so we can ensure your shock has the proper spring for your application. Fully Serviceable – All Touratech Suspension is fully serviceable and can be customized or re-built by Touratech-USA or any qualified suspension technician. Summary – Touratech Explore HP Shock The Touratech Explore HP is an excellent upgrade from a stock OEM shock and a great alternative to other aftermarket shocks that have only oil-emulsion dampening or don’t offer enough pre-load adjustment. If you need a shock that will perform well for fully-loaded touring, this shock will improve your ride right out of the box. With 50% more preload adjustment than other shocks and the convenience of a hydraulic adjustment knob, the Explore HP is a great choice for your R1200GS or GS Adventure. Note: If you want the ultra convenient push-button electric preload adjustment consider upgrading to the Touratech Explore HP e (electric preload adjustment) Shock. If you want a shock with adjustable high and low-speed compression dampening and a remote reservoir, consider the Touratech Expedition Shock.

    Great ride. Had a 2012 road that I started with and upgraded when I found a deal on a used XC. Larger front wheel and better suspension were huge. That said, the the stock suspension sucks for someone bigger than average. With some upgrades it has been a great dual sport and tourer.

    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! http://youtu.be/0mtq5-dkAXg

    Dings, scratches, scrapes, or even a cracked valve cover can all be results of a simple tipover on the liquid cooled R1200GS. With its wide boxer-style engine, the valve covers hit the ground when the bike goes over. Touratech aluminum cylinder head guards offer lightweight and low-profile protection for your BMW's engine.

    This is the largest bike I have ever owned. Love it. Very capable of long rides then jumping off road.
  13. 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/

    I've been riding for for about 28 years on many different genres of bikes - from dirt, to cruiser, to crotch rocket. I have to say, this bike is by far the best I have had the pleasure of owning and riding. It's versatility, quality, and capability coupled with it's reasonable price point make it a win win!

    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

    I love my BMW GS Adv. 'Nuff said. Best fun on two wheels since I had a sport bike. If anything my first thought when I bought it, as I rode away from the dealer, was "So THIS is what I'm missing out on."... Life is just different. And now my ZX10r sits in the garage, a proper race queen, having served me reliably for 27,000 miles... My GSA is not only my daily commute but my escape as well.

    Customize the fit of your BMW R1200GS or GSA with a set of Touratech bar risers. There is no substitute for a bike that fits you. When it's more comfortable, it makes long trips more enjoyable. Many R1200GS riders find that increasing bar height makes a noticeable improvement to their comfort. Raising the bar height results in a more upright position which can relieve neck and back strain. Touratech bar risers also enable a more comfortable and controlled standing position, which is ideal for off-road riding or just stretching the body on a long ride.
