Community Announcements

We know it has been a challenging few years for all of us, but last year was especially challenging for the support of this community. We had some significant expenses, while the support from our membership continues to be significantly smaller than years past. If you appreciate this community and want to see it continue to grow and improve, it is important that you support us through subscriptions. We are only supported by the community and a hand full of supporting dealers and vendors. We have continued to keep this community free of intrusive advertising and banners, unlike most other online communities, but if we cannot pay the bills, we will be forced to look at some sort of advertising in the near future. If you are not a member, please take a moment and purchase a subscription.

Please thank the Vendors and Dealers who support this community by giving them a chance to earn your business.

I'm using the BMW small soft sport bag. Easy to put on, easy to remove and water tight

Thanks for the pics xlr8r! When the bag is extended are there any straps to keep the load compressed?

Unhappy

I second the comment on the Chicane tail bag. It's only$79 but looks terrific, like a cowling. Problem is that Chicane is out of stock and won't get new ones till July.

I found this site http://www.wunderlich.de/ it's in German but they have some nice stuff you'll need to run a translator over it to read it read. But they have a expandable tail bag 16-40 litres aka the Fastbag. If prefer more security Hepco & Becker http://www.hepco-becker.de/ now makes a rail system for the S allow for their top cases in sizes 30 thru 52 litres.

I bought my bike with the Hepco & Becker rack on it... for long trips it's been nice to have the added storage. I don't know of a good place to buy much from them here in the US... any thoughts?

Don't know about Hepco & Becker. But BMW of Santa Cruz (http://www.bmwsantacruz.com/) carries Wunderlich. You can order off their site.

As for the Hepco & Becker the US distributor is at www.eurotechmotorsports.com check the link to see who the retailer is in your area. :yeah

So what size bag do you have. I'm wondering if 30 liter will hold a full face helmet?

Looks like the 40lt will hold a helmet...
http://www.eurotechmotorsports.com/...2000%2000%20%20

"QUICKFACTS
These 40 liter each bags are absolutely waterproof with security built around the strengthened edges. The heavy duty Junior saddlebags are lockable, and key-able to all Junior topboxes. A full face helmet will fit due to the modified lid that offers more luggage depth.Will work on any motorcycle with Hepco Becker saddlebags mounts. "
