I know, I need a tail rack, at a minimum.

I like this bike a lot. I will be due for the first service by the end of the weekend, if the storms are not too severe tomorrow.

Looks really cool. Glad you are enjoying her. Same mounting system as I have on mine, but my budget didnt extend to the Trax paniers. I like the Windshield and deflector. May I ask what brand it is and where you found it?
Regards
Dave

Thanks everyone for the compliments.
It is the MRA Vario Touring windshield. It was installed by the dealer along with the bags and mounts.

According to the Website the side mounts work with the OEM trunk rack.
What dimensional size are the panniers?
The reason I ask is I fly every week and need to know if they will fit in the overhead of a Boeing 730.

First weekend

I got in a good ride today with a friend. This bike rocks!!! I think I need a new helmet and jacket that match a little better, though.








Here are the dimensions of the 37 liter bags I have. I wish they were wide enough to hold a helmet.

Lovely pics! Weather looks great and some super roads. I do agree that the gear is just not right. That blue rider on the green V just doesn't work. The spending never stops, does it?
