BMW R100 Bob Porecha fairing bags

The '76 RS has been the latest recipient of my fetish for period accessories. There's just something about vintage bike luggage..... Here are a pair of fairing pockets made back in the day by London based BMW guru Bob Porecha.

The bags fit neatly between the tank and the fairing and are neatly shaped to match the RS fairing pretty much spot on. They attach with velcro straps on the fairing brackets. In use the bags are not in the way as they are neatly tucked away. They have no internal stiffening so any load has to be balanced, light or shaped to the bags, preferably all three of these. I'm not sure of the capacity, suffice to say that they are capacious and should be just the job for keeping odds and sods to hand whilst touring. Their test run was on a ride to a local farm shop where they proved to be particularly adept at keeping a pair of pasties snug and safe on the ride home.
