    About 10 years ago........had a blast on the ER6N. A great naked tourer and used it to commute from FL to NC.

    Kind of you to say.

    Though, I feel as if my post is similar to a Marvel Cinematic Universe trailer. I've already given everything away!

    I bet you get great wear on that front tire with all that weight on the back.

    :)

    (That is, how can you not wheelie that bike at this point! Woooooooo!)

    Ah, I know that turnout quite well. Headed up Teton Pass from Victor towards Jackson, I do believe.

    Nice naked touring!

    Does that rear bag overlap side of the seat?
    You must pack light if not?

    It does not overlap the riders seat if that's what you mean. It pretty much just sits on the pillion seat and doesn't interfere with my riding position at all. It holds a decent amount and is working out well so far. Unfortunately I don't have any other pictures with it on.

    It might not be my style of machine, but damn, that bike/setup is sextacular. :thumbup
