yes, we sell those - that is a rack SYSTEM, meaning a rack and bag combo, so the rack is not sold seperately.

It is a SW Motech rack (and SW Motech 'Dakar' bag (Bags Connection is a SW Motech product).

available from us or other reputable bike stores nationwide  :lol8:

After having hard boxes on my previous bikes I just could not deal with the job of fitting and removing the ATG bag's
that I bought for my Twin, especially when on longer trips. So after much delibiration I bit the bullet and bought a set of Mosko Moto panniers.
Must say they are very well made and thought out.

The ATG bags are universal, I do however have the bike specific Rumbux pannier frames on.  :thumleft:

BMC filters - money well spent!!
pricey though, R2200 (luckily for both).
Consumption has improved quite a bit and waaay more responsive from 100kmph and when cruising.
Agents don't change filters on 12000 and wait for 24000 but they look very tired around 15000.

Mine must go for it's 12k km service soon.  Did you just change the filters yourself? Where did you get them from?

Bike is in for her 12k service and I'm fitting new BMC filters.

Next farkle:  Suspension upgrade.  But that's gotta wait till cashflow resembles something other than a river of blood.   :lamer:
