Me and my wife ride two up. I lent her my helmet for an hour. She made me buy one for her! They are pricey but well worth it!

Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire A true 50/50 dual sport tire, the K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Heidenau K60 Scout dual sport tires deliver better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well. The chevron style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates. This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction. A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish. TL Tubeless TT Tube Type Tire Please Note Tire size 150/70 -17 has a solid, center band rather than the staggered tread pattern pictured (see below). Tire size 150/70-18 has a less pronounced center tread stagger (see below). Please Note The K60 Scout tread pattern will vary depending on tire size.

NOTE The AltRider Products are precision engineered for tight exacting tolerances meant to be installed on OEM / stock setups. If you have any aftermarket hardware on your bike which could affect the AltRider part install area or surrounding clearances, your AltRider product may not fit. Please contact us with any questions, before purchasing. AltRider BMW R1200GS Oil Cooler Guard The AltRider oil cooler cover tucks neatly inside the beak of the BMW R 1200 GS, providing protection for the critical and expensive oil cooler. The lightweight, louvered design allows maximum air flow while protecting against rocks, road debris and the occasional branch. Pre-attached adhesive pads on the guard ensure that it installs in the most effective location, using predetermined places on the oil cooler. The beak of the R 1200 GS wasnt made to carry weight or stress, so its essential to correctly install the cooler guard. Thats why we designed ours so it was nearly impossible to install it any other way. Clean lines and an aggressive look give this oil cooler guard a distinct appeal that complements and protects your R 1200 GS. Save yourself hassle and frustration and the purchase of a new 330 oil cooler by installing the AltRider oil cooler guard. Maximum airflow meets maximum protection Adhesive tabs ensure perfect, quick installation Lightweight aluminum construction Made in the USA Specifications Aluminum construction Anodized finish in black or silver Height3 inches Width 4 inches Depth11 inches Weight 0.27 lbs
