2009 BMW 1200 GS Adventure

The New 1200 GSA

  • BMW Panniers – for storing the “stuff”
  • Altrider Oil Cooler Guard – sticks and stones will break my…
  • Altrider Headlight Guard – lots of stones from the truck traffic
  • Centech  AP-2 Fuse Box – keep the heated vest powered up
  •  BMW GPS – where the heck am I?
  •  BMW Stock Windshield- stones on the road to Prudhoe Bay
  • Fastway Footpegs – stand-up to stretch the legs
  • Russell Day-long custom seat  Rick Mayer Custom Seat Found that the Russell seat was really uncomfortable for me on long rides. Aching back after about 2-3 hrs.  Think they are made more for the heavier rider.
  • TKC -80 Off-road tires (spare) – knobby for the gravel roads, AK only
  • Wolfman Rainier Tank Bag – Just added this item and will be doing an in-depth review of it for the blog.  Wolfman Luggage has agreed to sponsor the ride through the donation of luggage and supplies needed!

  1. Ted. I also have a SPOT GPS. Will you be activating a tracking website through and using “tracker” on your SPOT GPS? This way we could follow you in nearly real time. Just curious.

  2. Yup – I’ll have an active SPOT page for tracking the ride. Trying to find a way to post the output here on the blog – not successful yet.
