R 1200 GS / Adventure Tank Bag – Compañero Edition

companero_tankbag_april2014_3

Touratech now offers its “Compañero Edition” tank bag also for the BMW R 1200 GS (from 2013 onwards) and for the new 2014 Adventure model. Its colours match exactly those of the Compañero riding suit, but due to its fresh design, it is also an eyecatcher in itself.

The specially tailored base plate provides a perfect fit and various features leave nothing to be desired.The basic volume of approx. 14 litres can easily be expanded to approx. 22 litres due to an all-round zip. Two additional side pockets provide space for your wallet or papers. A reflective elastic strap on the back is handy for holding, for example, your gloves during a short stop. Water-repellent high-end zips are used on the main compartment and both side pockets. The map pocket securely attaches to the tank bag using Velcro.

high breathable seat_R1200GS_ADV-

With seats it’s the same as with shoes: They may be comfortable in the beginning, but with ongoing use, they can turn into an instrument of torture. With Touratech seats for the new BMW R 1200 GS / Adventure, seating comfort and long-distance suitability are noticeably improved. They are available in various heights and versions – depending on the rider’s body size and purpose of use – from extra low to high, as a patented breathable version or as a single-piece sports seat.
