this system in the picture is only 68cm wide. Much less than the narrow steering wheel in RACER and even narrower than the width of the cylindersIt looks great!
I was leaning towards the Hepco Becker setup, if only for easier and much faster purchasing here in the States. But the various Nomada bags appear to sit closer to the bike - as they should.
@gristle - I’m sure you mentioned what suspension you put in, but help a lazy dude out and please repeat what you’ve done.A brief but satisfying Mother’s Day morning ride out to Sauvie Island to take in the farmland, and bang down some lumpy gravel roads. The new suspension isn’t dialed in or broken in yet, but it’s a clear step forward. As it rides now, even without the suspension travel or big roomy cockpit or better tires, it’s more fun and easier for not-a-Dakar-racer-me on the loose surfaces than the GSs I’ve owned or ridden.

I haven’t written up and posted anything specific yet as I’m still getting it sorted out. As I was doing research, I spoke at length with Ted Porter who owns and runs the BeemerShop and Matt (can’t remember last name), the tech in charge of calculations, at Racetech.@gristle - I’m sure you mentioned what suspension you put in, but help a lazy dude out and please repeat what you’ve done.
I have all the cosmetic stuff done and have the suspension and shock to replace. I’m not in need of a 70mm lift provided by the Wilbers solution, but wouldn’t mind 40mm or possibly 50mm. - Guy
