I'm cheap, a nice $30 backpac tied to the rear seat gives me all the storage I need.

I am trying to learn to travel lighter, but I can't get all I want to take with me for a week in a backpack.

The last LE purchased on Feb 4th of 06. Now has 37,000 on it, Amsoil, Throttlemeister, V1, PR2s or 3s and extended 'bungee' bolts for a 22" Thor seatbag using two bungee cords and a net. With a TM Cortech mini tankbag, that's all I need for a two week tour.

6 day trip through Arizona and southern California

Just returned a few days back. Really like the way this bike works on a tour. Covered about 1200 miles, no big days really, the most was about 350 miles, but the bike worked perfectly. Effortless power and speed, think I'm gonna keep this one for a while.

Does anyone use their Hayabusa as a two-up sport tourer? I'm interested in the big bike, but only as a replacement for my 1150gs, which provides loads of reliable, basic (boring) comfort for touring. I'd like something sportier for the wife and myself to enjoy, but I don't think the dedicated sport-tourers (c14, fjr, sprint gt) are the ticket. Feedback is much appreciated from those who have tried it, who make it work regularly, or who wouldn't go there period!







Oh, dead thread... revived!

My wife has ridden with me on my K8 numerous times for 5-6 hour rides. Usually run with a tankbag and a Wolfman Beta behind her on an SW-Motech rack. Decent comfort 2-up; she has fallen asleep many times!

It's even good for 2-up camping...!

Nice looking bike! Are the Yoshimura exhausts very loud?
