I do want a rubber mounted motor to quell the vibes and I'll need a decent shield and I need a way to carry stuff and I'd prefer a hard lockable case. I've seen a couple at a great price, just don't want to pull the trigger and find I can't outfit the way I need.

I'm looking for simple here, I put a lot of miles on a motorcycle real fast. 30,000 miles in a year is a light year for me.

So can I outfit a Sporty for the mission?
