Route Des Grandes Alpes

Route des Grandes Alpes with soft luggage and a BMW


Having just taken early retirement from a job I'd been moved into and hated I decided that I needed some 'me' time, so a bike was sought and after several test rides I settled on a BMW.


Not a 'GS, oh no! An R nine T. Panniers were sought and I settled on a set of Dirtsack Longranger Pros. The spec looked awesome, and when they arrived it wasn't a surprise to find that the quality was every bit as good as the adverts said. I paired the sacks with some German made pannier side racks and all looked set for a little ride.
