I like the classic look of a single round headlight. Also, the stock FZ fairing and windscreen produce the worst turbulence I've ever experienced on a motorcycle.

Consider this the bike's "everyday" arrangement. I also have a large tank bag and a Givi top-case that I will install next. I passed on the expensive ($150+) Givi top-case rack and bought an adapter kit ($45) for the side racks instead. I'm going to buy a second seat and bolt a universal Givi mounting plate to the pillion section, then mount the case to it. I don't tour with a passenger and I'd rather have the cargo more centrally located, rather than hanging way out behind the rear wheel.


I will add pics to this thread the day I finally take another real trip. It's been years.


Regarding the little E21's: I travel light, even cross-country. And I just don't like side-loading cases.

This old beast and its messenger bags took me everywhere...
