Very impressive, Cap'n.

Now if you want a bit more room, you could cable-tie a couple of document holders to those engine bars like I do.  (Sw-Motech brand for expensive, or from a rural supply store for cheap.)
I have 4 of them fitted, 2 on the inside of the non-exhaust Givi pannier rack, where some put a fuel container.
They will hold a 750ml (glass) bottle of port, or 1L plastic bottle.  Oh, and tool rolls, compressor, tyre plugger kit etc.

I do have a pair of Aerostich tank panniers that are currently on my Himalayan...  :001:

Yeah, I am probably the only TEX owner with a three-piece screen.  :002:

There are some threads, that if one doesn't diligently cover their progress, will absolutely be lost on them, no matter what...

This is one such thread. Well done gents.  :821: :047:

Hi TigerEXP. Congrats with your beautiful bike  :028:.

-Is there a 12V socket near the cockpit?
-Do you have a navigation? And if so, how did you mount it (maybe a picture) and where did you get the power?
-And to change the airfilter, do you still have to remove the fueltank? I thought I read somewhere that changing the airfilter is much easier now........

Thanks!

How soon we forget. This is Robert Pursig and his son and friends on his famous journey. I think that Honda is 305cc. I'm sure that the tent is canvas. Imagine what that weighs.
I just learned that after decades of resting in the family garage, Robert Pursig's Honda Super Hawk has been restored and donated to the Smithsonian's transportation museum, along with other Pursig memorabilia.   :002:
