Re: Panniers or Topbox? Or May be both?

Hated the hard panniers on my S1000XR - looked cool but totally impractical for me. I like a small top box and a soft bag on the pillion. Have stuff you need whilst out in the top box, rest in the bag. Not keen on tank bags, they are for camp older men :lol: ;)

Re: What would put you off buying a GS1200/1250?

Re: Heated Waistcoats, but not 12V

I have an avade, it's no thicker than an under armour stretchy base layer. I use it for dirt biking in winter and for other more sedantary outside sports in winter. It's also what the factory riders used in dakar when it was in south america to cope with the high passes, they're excellent and I'd sa...
