It's to distract people from noticing my wrinkles.

My camp propane iron was out of gas.

Just got out of the shower and can't do a thing with it.

Like us all, it did look better 10 years ago.

Those damn factory bags do that to everything.

The ripstop nylon surgeon wasn't available until after my ride. Just a nice lift and tent tuck.

LOL You needed to keep going with your Top Ten reasons for using a stuff-sack.

I love coming home and finding the postman has left a box marked YAMAHA
on the porch. This one came from Canada. There are ways to get around US rules.

The factory headlight cover came in.



The Altrider bars were last week and I got one of those tool tubes tucked in.





I switched out the rack to a Altrider setup. Has a neat cubby hole that fits
a Slime air compressor perfect.



Used a snap strap to keep it from vibrating out the back.

Ripstop Viagra should get the wrinkles out. For a little while.
(Do not remove the tent poles if wrinkles are not back in four hours)

Stuff-sack? It said "Trojan" on the packet.

"Does this tent make me look younger?"

"I said give me a tent that FITS my ass. Not look like it!"

Wow. Do they make these stuff-sack things in a womens size?

They must be female. It sure seems a lot more comes out than ever went in.

Thank you. I'll be here all week. Be sure to tip your waitress.

Just a thought but it looks like if you go down on the RHS that tool tube may take the hit 1st and if the TT placcy doesnt break it could stress that engine case flange you've bolted it to. :/

Tank bag is a WolfMan, Ranier (I think). Bought it some time ago. Very well made. Now on it's 4th bike and over 100k miles. Bags are Jessie's. Google Jessie luggage. Pricey but worth it IMHO.
