    Could you provide some dets on the huge bag strapped to where the passenger sits and the topcase would be? Never seen anything like it. Tks.

    This is in the far south Louisiana, in the marsh not far from the coast. The oak trees are totally exposed to the elements and grow slowly and in a distinct, gnarly way.

    You're actually looking at the bottom of it. After squeezing in everything I could it just sat better sideways. Here's a pic with it sitting proper-like.

    I think I got it off of Amazon but do some price shopping. Link here to Walmart. For the money it's served me very well and I'd recommend it. Only thing different that I can see from motorcycle specific bags is the lack of tie-down points but three or four Rox straps makes that a non-issue. Coincidentally, I learned about it on another forum from a rider who also lives in Lafayette.

    No way that bike is so clean on that road. Did you wash it immediately before the photo?

    And some from Death Valley. The last one is descending Lippencott Mine "Road" after dropping it on the loose rocks over sand. That was a steep descent!

    Photos never do that stuff justice, descents never look hard in a photo, and never look easy from inside the helmet.

    I love it when people take Wee's where they don't belong :)

    Kudos! I came down Lippencott a few weeks ago on my KTM 450 EXC. It would not be fun on a Strom!

    Out and about today.

    Thought we were going to be locked down when we received a significant winter storm a couple of weeks ago. Temps then moderated, snow melted away, and rain washed away the salt; now we are good to go. Enjoyed a balmy 37F today. One of these days I'll get some heated gear.
