Re: Hard or soft luggage?

Liking the look of the OS32 panniers, look a solid bit of kit!
Liking some of the pictures too, looks like they're quite 'modular' in the sense that you can add further small bags onto the top / sides of them. Interesting!

Hard or soft luggage?

Looking at the possibility of selling my hard luggage set up on my 950 Adventure... Not even sure of its worth? It's a full set of 3 Jesse panniers and top box. I'm tempted by the lighter weight and flexibility offered with soft luggage, as the bike is very bulky and fully laden is not the most conf...

Re: The New Versys 1000

Interesting, whether it's the 650 or the 1000. Kawasaki have been a little behind the game in not offering a larger adventure tourer capable of genuine off road ability. Here's hoping, a 650 with similar power or slightly more power output, tablet-like screen, genuine off road ability and a 25L tank...

Re: The New Versys 1000

How hard can it be? Change the numbers 1000 to 650?
Or was it for the purpose of drumming little more than 'white noise'?

Glencoe Rainy Ride

Hi all, Thought I'd share a short video I had from my trip into Scotland, through Glencoe. Unfortunately my GoPro packed up shortly after this and is off for warranty repair, but fortunately I was able to recover the contents of my MicroSD card. Ah well, just have to go up there next time to do some...

Re: Solar Panel on top box

Anyone done this to charge small devices? I have a small peli case for which I've made a mount for my S1000. I fancy mounting a small but robust panel on it. I see from ADV rider that a guy's done but it was to trickle charge his bike and his panel is large. I only want to charge a phone and an ipa...

Re: Quite impressed

The screen is OK in direct sunlight, just have to turn up the brightness to counteract it. With respect to OSM maps, I guess it could be loaded onto a micro SD and loaded onto the sat nav, you just have to tell the sat nav where to look for it and it should load. The sat nav itself runs on Windows C...
