    That tank looks great on the TW! If I change mine, that'll be the way I go.

    Set up an interactive viewer for the TW. Before you click on this, please realize that the model is about 160Mb in size and may take some time to transfer. Make sure any mobile devices are on WiFi and not mobile data, etc...

    And before anyone asks, no the exhaust is not rusting, it's just poorly shadowed. I gave it about 6 coats of high-temp manifold paint before I wrapped it.

    Anybody use a Giant Loop tail bag on their tw200? Is it too massive for the bike?

    I'm going with strapped on waterproof river bags. That is a very cool looking set up, but I think I want the flexibility of not having to dig for what I want too much. Multiple bags with certain stuff in them. Next week I will post pics of bikes mostly ready to go.

    Your shopping list is great, but the cost! :yikes

    I listed all the things I bought when I built my DR650 street tracker and the total was double what I would have guessed and at least four times what I planned to spend... :becca

    It is amazing how quickly it adds up. :pep

    Crazy! I went through ProCycle and made my list, and it's very close to your choices, and the cost..... well lets not even bring it up. And, still much more to buy outside of bike parts. :D

    Does anyone know if side racks will work/fit with the CycleRack top rack?

    Don't forget to spend some of that bling-fund on good PPE gear. Nothing dresses up a bike as well as a nice helmet/jacket/boots.

    The Happy Trail SU rack works fine with the Cyclerack on mine.
