Hello from Safety Beach, Victoria Aus

HI Chris here, Had my 310 GS for several months now and absolutely love it. Long time biker, the GS follows a CRF250L and prior to that a range of bikes from a BSA Bantam (who didn't start the bike adventure on a bantam?) to a Honda Bol'dor, and my last BM a R100RSR and many in between.
The little BM is lively and very well mannered both on and off the hard stuff. Only mod I've made so far is to change the levers, short & adjustable, to fit my smallish hands.
Looking at windscreens and panniers next, not quite sure, possibly Hepco and Becker c bow system, and Ztechnik mid sized screen. Any comments on either of these?


Looking forward to being involved in the forum..

Welcome to the forum Chris! I have the c-bow system (with the hard bags) & really like them. Also have a Ztechnik windshield but went with the taller touring model - works great!

Thanks, that helps me make decision, I can only buy online and I would prefer to see them before I outlay my hard earned. I’ve been caught out before!
Cheers

Hi red rabbit,
Welcome to the forum.
Enjoy our threads and hopefully you can contribute.

Are you a firefighter as you have ‘red’ in your ‘name’ ?

I put Givi Trekker Dolomitis on mine. It would have been nicer were they a bit smaller, but I like locking aluminum cases.

Welcome to the forum.
+1 on the HB C-bow bags, Orbit panniers in my case.
Also check out what Rally Raid has to offer. Their screen is designed to work when Barkbusters are fitted if you plan to go that route as well.

No, not a fire fighter, just a nick name for my toys.
