Don't look now but I think your BMW tail bag died :)

Try a Chicane Mesa bag. It holds it shape better than the BMW bag and attaches to your carrier plate the same way your BMW bag does.

Well, yeah, it's been on the back for about 2½ years and 60k miles, 3/4 full and accessed on average of 4 times a day. It's been stretched a bit beyond it's limits, and spent most of it's time with contents shifted to the left side as the bike is usually parked on the sidestand. Usually the only thing on the bike that provides a place to put "stuff".

Might replace it with the hard case, but it's useful time is pretty much up. Fabric is showing signs of failure, but I can't complain...

I've got a T-bag for my GT. Good size, fits over the pillion backrest.

Great reading Ray.

Makes one think about those Nor Cal riders.

I thought I was the only old guy doing a KGT at 50+

Ride Safe.

Nope, if you come to the Texas Hill country Round up, you'll find a whole bunch of us "oldtimers". Hell, at 50 something, Rays a young sprout. :teeth

Hi
Talking about tail bags I just bought a JC Whittney hard tail case, not too big not too small. I love it. $80. Fits right to the BMW mount that you use with the OEM tail bag using a plate, brackets and screws. Really neat when monuted on the bike.
