I wish I could do that trip. I went to Russia 2 years ago for work and had a couple of days to walk around Moscow and see the Red square. What a beautiful country in March. I would love to see it in spring. Have fun on your adventure.

Mikl, No need to notch the fender for the bag, after it's installed take some plyers and squeeze the metal tabs pinching the plastic between it a little, stays on fine. I've used them that way for many tough miles with no problems.

Nice Job!

I used to have a 650R and never put that kind of love into it. Your build is killer! Nice fabrication skills.
