Arrow More recent pics

I've made a few changes to the bike since i last posted pics, so I just decided to update it. Here's 2 pics from today. Yesterday I removed the front fender and I played with re-routing the horn wiring to make it a bit prettier. Also, that passenger pillion was installed since the last pic I posted.

Re: More recent pics

Did those leather bags affect aero drag (thus FE)?
I'm always suspicious about my topcase but its effect seems unmeasureable...

Re: More recent pics

I got the bags not long after the bike, maybe 2 weeks? I think I was on my first tank still. The bags are what allows me to take the bike, and not another vehicle. Without the bags I am unable to go to the grocery store, and run other errands on the bike.

Re: More recent pics

Sure thing, that essential accesory the topcase for us (now both of our bikes have them, the Ciliegia's 'leather' bags have worn very soon ).

Hm, you're right, I should upload new pictures too...

Here you can see both:



But here you won't see the case, just the mounting rack.
They're compatible anyway, you can use Teresa's topcase with Ciliegia and vice versa (both are Givi boxes)

What's my 'luck' is Teresa's special trait: the mini luggage bay where the tank should be. When I just go to work or small errands I can put a small backpack there like a tankbag (in this picture I put a map on it too).

Re: More recent pics

My bags aren't leather, they're really thick vinyl. (What do you expect for a set of new saddlebags for $60 at a flea market?) The price was right, and they're large & roomy. The quality is pretty good too. I just figured for the price, I could use these until I find the "perfect" bags, but these have really grown on me.
