    Welcome

    You should check out the BMW Motorad Club Northern Illinois. Several members have the GS and do a lot of riding. There is usually a Saturday ride you can join.

    Optimate 4 Charger

    I bought a Optimate 4 charger when I had my 2007 R1200RT. Is there any reason I can't use it on my 2009 R1200RT?

    A closet and a back rest

    I always ride one up. My partner rides her own bike. I pack things on the pillion seat because I can and also because it provides a great back rest on the long rides.

    Take a look at the Kilamonjaro jacket from First Gear. That is the jacket I'm hoping to get from Santa. It has new armor which is more pliable.
