Hi everyone.
Just signed up to the forum. I took delivery of an unreg lowered Triple Black end of June from my local dealer here in England. This is my third BMW from new, the previous two being an S1000XR sport and a GS Urban. I've held a licence for over 30 years and have ridden fairly extensively in Europe with a pillion. Was a Triumph man before the switch to BMW. I don't profess to be any good with a screwdriver or much as a cleaner/valet...I just like riding!
I'll be looking for as much advice as you can all give me, starting with luggage.

it was also the search for luggage that lead me to here.

I like the look of the black aluminium Givi Dolomiti/Outback boxes, but I like the price of the Shad system a lot more. Three boxes for £760 on ebay.
58 litre top box and plate, 36 litre panniers and mounts, plus back rest. Inner pannier bags for another £25.
Unless anyone knows where i can buy cheaper?
