    No, it absolutely helps! The case wasn't destroyed. It just skidded across the road. I guess I just assumed I couldn't order a latch off a 30 year old piece of luggage. But I just did! I found it at...

    Thanks, MonoRT. I guess I'm going to start strapping the things on as well as latching them. Kind of a bummer cuz it sort of spoils the look . But that's what I get for liking old things.

    83 R100 RS - Pannier latch exploded!

    Driving along nice as you please in the sleepy suburbs (30 mph-ish) and the latch on one of my panniers disintegrates, sending the thing sprawling across the road! Not cool! The only upside is that...

    For what it's worth I went with the DOWCO. Seems very nice, although I have not attempted to fold/zip it back up yet. We'll see how that works out tomorrow morning...

    And look what I found parked next to me! I never see old Beemers around here, so this was cool to find. Hopefully I'll see it driving around some time.

    What is this?

    At the risk of sounding like a complete moron, can somebody please tell me what this thing is? It came in a box of spare stuff when I bought my bike (83 R100RS).

    Hmm. I don't know if it has a running lamp either. There's no switch for one, I don't think. Either way I need to replace the headlamp. I'm going to order one today.

    I just learned that John Belushi is buried on Martha's Vineyard, so I decided to find his grave. I grew up in Chicago, and Belushi was always kind of an idol of mine.

    Glad you're liking the pics! The sandy roads weren't so bad. Sand is pretty packed, and you can only go 15-20mph anyway. The ferry ride is only 500 feet, so it's only a minute or two.

    We're staying right by a little airstrip in a field where old planes take off and land all day. I rode in this biplane a couple years ago. It was really cool. Felt like it was going like 2 mph.
