    Ha!! Are you volunteering? Actually, I have a Mag's "U-bag" (I think she calls it the Grand Touring Bag) that will wrap around the back and lay on the side pockets (with some paint protection measures). However, maybe I'll take my K75S and display it side-by-side with K75Swim's K75S.

    Nah, it's the 85. There's a reason that the 85's are often referred to as the FYK (Finest Year K).

    I have a 3-piece set of luggage for the rear seat consisting of a medium sized center "box" with a smaller, thinner, pair of side compartments (one for each side) which goes on the passenger seat area. These are about big enough for a couple of nights on the road if you were staying in a hotel. Are/were there other K1 specific luggage?

    Ralph, that looks like a K1 with a K100 rear subframe. Some individuals did that themselves, and I believe there was a company in Germany doing that conversion as a retail service for a while. Do you have a bigger version of that photo?

    No way dude! '92 K75 was the FYK, FYI.



    (actually, I don't know... nor do I care... they're all good... but I'm particularly happy with mine).

    Yes, there was BMW soft luggage specific for the K1. It consisted of a large center bag and two sidebags. The color matched the K1 tankbag. It was attached to the rear grabrail with snap buttons and the side bolts that normally hold the tail cover. Came with a rain cover that sported the K1 logo. I started collecting these when they were no longer available new and have 5 sets.
    Well...I wouldn't exactly call the center bag "large", but that's the luggage I have - minus the rain cover.

    Are you going to Gillette?

    Unfortunately, no. I was going to go, but needed to stay home and get some things done to get me freed up to go to Gillette.

    Well, there is always 2009. We'll see you in Georgia
    The 2009 site will be announced by next Monday...
