Hello from the netherlands

I just became a member of the G310R forum.
Looking forward to all your topics and usefull information.


I'm a BMW rider for the last 37 (!) years, riding 2 R65's, a 60/5, R100RS, R80RT, R80, 3 K75's, a 850 and R850RT and a F800ST.
Now a brandnew G310R and after putting on the first kilometes on the clock, i'm loving it.


Now I'm looking for a toprack / toppannier for the G310R and it looks like i'm going to buy that from Hepco&Becker.
Anybody already some experience with H&B ?

Welcome to the forum! Never tried Hepco&Becker products before, but the rear rack looks pretty nice and it could double as a sort of rear passenger back rest.

Welcome to the forums ! Glad to have another seasoned rider on here and it seems you definitely have quite the history of being a BMW aficionado. Congratulations on the new bike as well, which color did you go for?

Welcome to the forum, I have bought a leather duffel bag for the back and plan on using rok straps to hold it down. I'll take some pictures once I receive it.

Colour

My G310R is a blue one.
The white one looks too racy and the black one is okay if the side panels where black too

Welcome to the forums. The blue does look really nice especially because the whole bikes looks a lot more uniform than the other colors make the G310R look. What is the odometer reading now??

odo says .......................... 950 km's !!!!
I bought the G310R in April but every weekend I already had planned something else.
I was not able to put some km's on the clock.
I made an appointment for the first service (1000 km) for next week and in the few coming days I will put some extra km's on the clock.
Then .................. vacation time (season) will arrive and hopefully this gives me time to ride the "G".

Now that the summer season is here, you can take some nice weekend trips outside of the city with your G310R. Never been to the Netherlands but I have seen some pictures of amazing roads and sights that you can ride to.

Hepco & Becker

I juist ordered and mounted the 'easyrack' and junior 40 topcase from hepco & becker.
It fits like a glove and the installation took me About 30 minutes.
Looks great.
I now have 40 liters extra space for raingear, working material etc. Etc.

Look forward to seeing some photos of the top case.

I have attached some photos of the leather duffle bag and rok strap setup that I use.
