Been lurking the forums for awhile to see what riders thought of the bike. Was sold quickly on it and picked up my new 09 blue a few weeks ago. Love the bike and now it is on to the many accessories I must have. I ordered the givi hard bad mounts and tail rack from twisted throttle and some panniers on ebay. Taking a ride to Oregon the beginning of next month on the new bike. Have been riding for the last 15 years and have a 2000 Kawa Drifter in the stable (hence the user name). Will post some pics after the bags are on.
