Arrow BMW F650 CS (2003) Luggage or SideBags?

I have purchased a BMW f650 cs (2003) and am trying to purchase some bags for the bike for travel. I don't want to spend a great deal of money and I can't seem to find anything that will tell me about bags will fit my bike. Anyone out there know of some good sidebags or luggage that will fit my bike?

Thanks and good riding!

Luggage Question

Hi there Mendy 24,

as I posted already in other threads, I got my stuff for my Honda TA from this company: http://www.mml-motorradzubehoer.de/index.html

It is all in German, but should give you a general idea. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. For explanation purposes: I live in Japan and can't get the right stuff for the right price over here! So I checked the net for the best place with the best deals. Came up with that side and I am more than satisfied with just everything they provided. I DON'T get any benefits from that company. Just trying to help.

Take care and safe riding

Klaus

Hi Mendy24,

There are options out there. Did you try "The Chain Gang" at www.f650.com? They have a wealth of info and tips on just the F650-series BMWs. I suggest to check e-bay, Advrider.com and The Chain Gang classifieds before pursuing buying something new since new luggage can get pricey.

Here's The Chain Gang's page that has links to aftermarket luggage.
http://faq.f650.com/FMainIndex/Misc.htm

If you are not a Chain Gang member, I recommend you join. Joining and using their forums are free. And again, it is dedicated to the various types of BMW F650s out there.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Drew
