Weight / Overall look

The World Crosser is the look I am after.

Wasp's luggage rack with pillion seat removed is AWESOME! I'll be doing that on day one.

Removal of the passenger pegs will be the second weight reduction step for me. Aftermarket exhaust - Wasp's system in the lead at the moment, together with losing the heat shield will be third.

I am in a real dilemma about the hard bags. Always been against them, but seem like a good idea for the S10 for commuting and on road trips. But a long not too tall bag of some sort mounted on that large rack area we now have with the pillion seat removed might make hard panniers unnecessary. For Adventure rides the Giant Loop bag together with all the space available on the pillion area/rear rack should be more than adequate.
