    ZG ST screen? How do you like it, whatever it is? I'm about to order a "winter" screen of some sort.

    What kind of bag is that? My throw-over bags don't really fit very well, that looks like a much better solution. Any issues with it moving around too much?

    Thanks.

    It is this one. http://www.saddlemen.com/Products/K...T-TAIL-TUNNEL-BAGS/TS3200-Sport-Tail-Bag.html It has several mounting options, the one I used was straps that clip to the bike and then to the bag. It didn't really move around much at the bottom, but since the straps I used attach to the bottom the top moved around a bit. I cinched down the top compression straps to reduce any movement. It was pretty roomy inside. The only issue is if you want to use it as a regular duffle the "tunnel" kinda screws that up.

    Honestly I was a little leery at the price ($89 last summer) but I was happy to see it wasn't cheaply made. It comes with 2 kinds of attaching straps, I got 3 of one and 1 of the other. No big deal.

    Thanks. It looks like it will fit the klr also, plus any other bike I feel like buying. Size and price seem great. As soon as the checking recovers from Christmas I'm ordering one.

    I had an '06 14 and I have a '12 14R. Nice little step forward. Great bike, except for gas mileage.

    Bought mine new back in 06. It's done everything from trackdays to touring - just a great bike.

    I recently fabricated pannier racks for some fast touring on the 14R next riding season. :1drink

    Contrary to the way it looks in this pic, the 35" pannier width ( Givi E21's) is less than the width of the mirrors.

    How upright do those risers have you sitting? I love these bikes, but due to many injuries I can't lean over for long. These particular risers look great, how they working for ya?

    I'm all ears...:ear

    They look like the same ones that are on my bike, I believe its 3/4". They aren't a huge difference but help. My problem is shoulders, the pain is still there but more manageable. I added a concours seat though, which basically cancels out the risers. So now either way something is sore.

    All typos and misspellings blamed on my phone.
