Noob dual sport post, spooned on my first tire/tube. I really like this TKC 80.

Installed my Tusk pannier mounts and soft bag plates today.

Got my soft bags mounted.  Nelson Rigg touring bags at 30L each.  Not waterproof, but I pack my stuff in Dry-Sil bags anyway.  The large buckles are the weak point, so I swapped them out for some Sea-to-Summit Field Repair buckles.  Now to find time for a trip...

Looks like your bike is all ready for a long trip......where are you going?

Need to find the time first, but I'd really like to take a long weekend street trip somewhere.

Wife's bike not mine, Suzuki DR200se.  ProTaper ATV High handlebars and new grips, had to reroute wires for both sides and cut 3/4 of an inch off both handlebar ends to get it all back to OEM width which fit her.  Now without risers the bike fits her standing and sitting and the OEM soft handlebars I was warned about are unscathed hanging with the spares.  The daughter still needs risers in addition to the ATV High bars to get hers to fit her, thats later.

I prefer "mini" bars on my 430 and 450's.

Mini, the handlebars nominally for 85's. Stock uncut about 29" but have the full straight handgrip space for my 3XL/13 paws. Also usually higher than "adult" handlebars. Probably not as high as ATV, but it is worth looking.

No so much the bike but for the bikes. Built a strapless system for the trailer.
