    OH you said you got that, I guess you want the color panels before you put it on?

    No rack to mount it to yet either unfortunately.

    Jim,

    Took the under seat liner out and worked the problem through. Lots of extra space for small items behind the liner. Pics show the backside of liner with velcro toggles pushed through a cut in the liner, the other give one a view of the bottom frame member that the velcro is attached to.

    Glad to see it! How was the liner attached - bolted on, or ...? (Didn't look to see...)

    WOW really looks like a lot of space between the frame and tupperware, looks like wasted space BMW could have used to increase storage capacity, good spot if someone wanted to have a nice tool kit for example.

    Those top frame bars are inside the storage area, not outside - I could be wrong, but I don't think there's as much free space there as you might be thinking...

    The liner is not fastened, easy to remove, with a little care.

    So it's resting on the frame rails?

    I thought the frame was hidden by the liner.
    I do agree it might not be that much space, hard to tell by just a picture, "1D" instead of "3D"

    The majority is resting on the plastic that forms the top of the fender. You can have a peek at the sides, between the liner and the side of the body by just pulling the liner inward just forward of the upper frame rail that is visible.
    I have put a tire repair and pump on one side and jumper cables on the other, all between the liner and the body. On the right side there is an adjustment for the seat release.

    Wind deflectors

    I read on another website that the wind deflectors for your hands at $181 were not worth the money. I had no intentions on that purchase. This is for your info.

    Is that the panels on the fairing that sort of sweep upwards and flare out to deflect the wind?
