Hey Everybody,

My name is Ed and I am the owner of Moto Machines and... a new S1000R  :001:. Moto Machines is the importer and distributor for Hepco & Becker, Ermax, and Amphibious Products based in Sterling, VA. We don't usually advertise with forums too much but after spending months on here in anticipation of buying a S1000R, this forum has proved to be a valuable resource so I thought we should sign up!

I picked the bike up at the dealer in early October just in time for the AIMExpo motorcycle show in Florida the same month. I immediately put the items that we sell on the bike which are the Hepco & Becker C-bow system, Sportrack, Ermax windshield, bell pan, and Amphibious Softseat. All these items are still on the bike and more! I will be making posts about these items in this section where you are free to ask questions in order to get a better idea of the products and if they are right for you!

I sent an email asking about Amphibious Motobags for the S1000R and got a quick response from Albert there at MotoMachines.

Sadly, he gave me the answer I didn't want to hear, which is that there really isn't a way to make them work... Which is too bad, because I would have bought them!

Maybe you can use your leverage to get Amphibious to sell a rack mount system for our bikes!

Unfortunately the Amphibious bags need a rectangular frame to strap onto. However, we have the C-bow bags and mounts available as an alternative. Lots of different luggage options are available. I currently have the sportrack on the bike and am about to add a top case. I know some S1000R owners don't have luggage options on their bike but a lockable top case really comes in handy! Saves me from lugging the gear around when not on the bike.

do you have plans on importing any tecbike products into the states. I for the life of me can't find their cat cover over here.

If you do ever start carrying a non-carbon fiber cat cover/belly pan, please post it!

Howdy Ed and Albert!

For Ed, could you please post some pics of your bike and the accessories you've since placed on the bike?

For everyone else, Albert is a great correspondence when ordering from Motomachines; good people over there. 

Cheers, everyone!

So you planning on putting the top box onto the s1000R using the sport rack or another option??

Can you post pictures of the sport rack and the extension (enlarging) plate-quite interested in that!!
