Enjoyed a great Saturday, washing, waxing, cleaning and lubing the chain etc. Even cleaned each spoke. Yesterday took a short ride on a clean bike.Today made the commute and stopped on the way home to pick up a few things. Came out of the store to find someone bent over looking closely at the bike. Older gentleman stood up and said, "Perfect timing" when he saw me caring my helmet. He was an Army Brat/Vet who traveled around with his dad and then on his own assignments. He had ridden REs in England and India. I was glad it was shining and clean. We talked for good while. He had some great stories. He had me start it up and just smiled it the thump. All in all a good day.
Dan Kearney - do you have some more photos/info on what you've got going on up the back there - rack/bags etc? Looks very practical!
It's a luggage rack that he hand made out of wood. It's actually really nice, it like "snaps" in place between the 2 panniers and makes for a quite a large rack. And I must say, he did a fantastic job building it.Scottie
Great job at max use of minimum space, Dan! And it looks great, too!Did you modify the Pannier Racks yourself, or were they already modded by the distributor?And is that a Pelican case top-mounted in your other pics? I've considered doing something similar so I can use the bike for work. Do you recall the part # for that case?NFG doesn't give the interior dimensions of the panniers. What are they?
300 this morning. My wife asked me if I was going to ride in. Then she saw I was suited up. A ride like that makes you feel alive.
