The clear map cover on my BMW RT tank bag finally gave up, any thoughts on easy ways to preserve/replace that feature?

I believe you can get it repaired here.

I contacted them once to see about replacing the zipper in my Bagster tank bag. They said they were able to replace the zipper but in the end I decided just to buy a new one since my old bag was in bad shape.

Total 418,600 BMW miles

The cheapest thing on a BMW is the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.

I had Linda at Custom do some repair work on an aux fuel cell cover, good work, reasonable price.

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.

Rainy Pass in Seattle repairs all manner of soft goods. They specialize in complicated stuff - goretex, dry suits, etc, and they are a BMW warranty repair facility (or something like that).

I've had a variety of things repaired there. Two thumbs up.

I'm a man, and I can change, if I have to, I guess.
