You know, that's a good question. Short of a gun to the head, there just isn't a good reason.

The rest of the world is a nice place to visit. Thus, the need of an Adventure bike.

It's certainly noticeable, and turned up the preload on the rear spring to get the same lean angle on the side stand. It seems to centerstand easier, and the weight is in no way objectionable. Also, it seems the added grip factor of bedliner coated tank seems to offset some of the weight. Somehow! Finally, the first gallon burned comes out of the top of the tank, and it's pretty much back to normal.

Thanks for the info.

I basically need something to carry an EZPass, a spare 20$ bill, and a few small snacks (hypoglycaemic, always need to carry some kind of sugar with me...)

Also, would anyone have any good tankbag recommendations for these? When I go to buy it initially, I'm hoping to get the OEM luggage as part of the deal, but that remains to be seen. Eventually, I would like to buy the Givi Trekker cases for this, as it's going to be effectively replacing an older Concours as my main ride. (Hoping to pick up a nice, used sportbike next year as my canyon carver...)

Love this thread, yon's are da best!

I really like my bags connection city tank bag. The gas cap ring mounting system is the best thing since sliced bread. It ain't cheap but what is nowadays!

When fully loaded the back can touch the tank slightly. I used a clear bra material to protect the paint there.

Hope this helps.

Thank you both for the info! These all look good, so will have to check them out the next time I'm at the Revzilla showroom or my local dealer. Much appreciated!

She waits patiently for me to come outside and play.

Stuck at the desk on a glorious day.

Odd combo if the same operator.

Work for an FBO chain. (Network Engineer. Built the network for 30+ locations about a decade ago)

Don't know much about aircraft. Those could all be John Deere tractors and I would still be doing the same thing. Everyone else that works here wouldn't. :)

Here is my daily view out the window.

Houston Hobby? If so, one of my favorite FBO's. I spend too much of my time in the pointy end of that first plane in your window view. I'll have to look for that bike next time I'm there. Used to be a DR, KLR or something parked there many days. Again, if that's Hobby.

Good eye. Yes it's Hobby. And yes, you would likely see 2 KLR's parked in the no-parking pocket by the door. (One mine. One my software engineer)

But I ride the S10 daily since I got it. The KLR gets lent out or sits.
Next time you land, just ask for "cowboy". We can talk bikes all day. :)
