1st purchase.

Nothing huge but finally got something to hold my insurance card and phone in while riding. Sure beats a backpack. I'm getting ready to Dremel my rear fender down to just the license plate. Pictures to come

You don't need a dremel. I used a set of tin snips to do the fender.

Straight from the Kawasaki website. It's Kawi brand. Got a discount on it so it was roughly $70. Not bad. I know there's other bigger better bags out there but I'm happy with what I got

Dang, I'd let you had mine for $20 + ship. They are not bad, but you are kicking 40" in the air when you get on your bike. If you are 6'-4" or a martial artist, it's ok: but I'm just 6'-0" and NOT a martial artist.

It's good exercise until you figure out what you want next. I got SeaHorse 720 trunk with key's for about $85, from SeaHorse, but the rear SW AL rack was $186 from Twisted Throttle.

So my trunk was $270 minimum plus at least $10 for 3M visibility stickers. You'll be in good shape by tine you decide. I had FRESHLY torn meniscus in both knees and it about KILLED ME!

I happen to be 6'5" lol so I'm good on swinging the leg over. And damnit why didn't you tell me you'd sell it to me for $20 + ship. Lol just kidding.
