Just a list of equipment I've bought or eventually plan on buying to go with my BMW F 650 GS.

Bike Equipment


  • Olympia Airglide 2 Jacket
  • Airglide 2 Mesh Tech Over Pant. So far the pants are great. I bought two sizes higher than my normal waist size and this leaves plenty of room for pants. The waist is a little loose, but there are two snaps for the buttons and snapping it to the tighter location snugs the waist up fine while leaving plenty of room for my normals pants. The sides have zippers that when unzipped all the way allow for easy removal of the pants without needing to remove your boots.
  • Spare Helmet

Misc. Safety Items

  • HALO Reflective Helmet Band - Not sure if this will be compatible with a convertible helmet.
  • Reflective Tape. Picked up some 3M Diamond Grade Conspicuity Tape (Red and Silver). In addition, picked up some 3M Scotchlite Black Reflective Tape. The black reflective tape appears flat black during the day but turns a bright white in reflecting light at night.
