Since the showroom delivery I added top crash bars.I dont ride around with my luggage on for my commutes hence the Kriega dry sac on the tail ! Cannot recommend the dry sac enough 30 litres I can get some much kit in I and  when I get to work etc I can just unclip it and carry it like a sports bag.-brilliant bit of kit IMHO

Glad to see more of us went with the black explorer panniers. They show dust but so what, I love mine as well.
The turn signal thing really needs to be addressed. I think I paid around $40US for my GenI replacement.
We really need something that will withstand a fall and keep on going. I know some dual sports are going in that direction, they bend easily without breaking.

Fred, you have no idea how I wish they were stronger. 3 weeks into my new bike and I'm replacing my right turn signal.

Regarding bags, I love black! I wasn't sure how I was going to like them but once I saw them on my bike, it was :101:

Hey, stealingbacktime...now you need to take your bike offroad, drop it on its right side, and then you and I will have VERY similar bikes!  :745: :821:
