Monster

What Termis are those?
I have the Termi side by side slip ons that came with the Ducati Performance ECU and open airbox cover. They do have an oval shape to them and sound great. A local shop here in Denver fabricated pipes for me to eliminate the udder.

No bar risers for me, setup is completely stock.

This thread is making me want to take the monster out on a weekend trip!

I guess I've only seen the stacked version.

I used a '97 TL1000S for touring, and it worked well all over the Southwest and Mexico. No reason you couldn't do the same with a Monster.

I've ridden and owned a ton of bikes over the years

I started out riding cheap "naked" bikes (on then they were just bikes)

This summer I did an 1800 mile trip on my Honda 919
Hard bags tank bag and a little flyscreen.

I enjoyed so much I'm getting rid of my DL650.

I'd set the Monster up for touring and go.
No need for a goldwing, 990 Adventure or a MTS.

I'm looking for some out of the box storage ideas for my Monster S2R. I figured I would revive this classic thread. Anyone have any good solutions for me? I'm leaning towards building a frame for soft bags. The tail is chopped on my bike.

Thanks for the reply Joe,

I own soft bags like that and loved them on my M620 but the S2R has the high pipes on the right side. I could get the givi frame and make extenders to get it to work. I was kind of hoping for some other ideas. I know they sold a left side only bag for the S2Rs has anyone tried that?

I do know that the Wolfman Mini Beta seat bag will fit on the S2R and clear the pipes, I saw a guy arrive at a rally last year with one on.

Not pretty but

I grabbed a rashed seat cowl and uglied up my Monster.

Fits a backpack / Laptop / lunch / rainsuit or a bunch of groceries
or a helmet etc.

Held up thru a Spring-Summer-Fall season.

hmmmm, I'm liking this idea!! A top box could work. I will also have to checkout the tail bag. Any other Monstourers out there?

Hey... Been there, tried that. I had a monster and tried setting it up for touring... it's just too cramped for that.

5 days and 1600 miles it's not made for that !!! I just bought a Multistrada for touring and it's just better setup for the trip.

Buy the Multistrada enjoy the ride and sell it when your finished.

I put almost 19k on my 620 which included some 2k+ trips with a couple 500+ mile days. I'm more Italian size (height) then American size so I have no cramped issues on the monster. The 620 I ran with soft saddle bags, a waterproof bag across the top and a tank bag. I plan on keeping this new bike for a long time and would like to build a rear storage setup for it. But I need to build some kind of a frame or a top box because of the high pipes. Thanks again for all the feedback, keep it coming:)

No reason you couldn't. Its easier when you are young and flexible. It seems the newer monsters are a bit less "Standard" but bar backs fix that. Get a good seat, figure out some bags, also a way to bring some extra gas, and you will be fine.
