New to the forum. Have a Versys and a Honda VTX1800. I'm 66, and have had Kawasaki a 1200R, Concours, Honda Magnas, KLR, Shadow, and others back to a Honda Scrambler when I was 16. I am in the process of building up a possible solo seat and poor man's hard bags. Believe it or not, I just completed 1200 miles on the VTX, and have a Goldwing box on top and two (well four actually, they are doubled) industrial strength polystyrene trash cans as side bags. Mounted well, they worked great, and hold the gear for such a trip (camping) rather than the little lunch box sized bags many seem to make do. I will post some pics of the project if it works out well enough to share.
Anyhow, hello, and thanks for the advice on the gearing...just got a 43 tooth rear sprocket. Jim
