I use a J & M helmet speaker/mic kit hooked up to a J & M Audiopak with XM Radio on my *gasp* Concours. I like to wear earplugs too.

I hear that the WSP is very receptive to fawning obseqious toadying lickspittles and has institutionalized this attitude in their new Community Outreacharound Program.

I only wear the blindfold when I'm riding with my dad and his Road Glide. That way he can keep up.



I'd gladly ride something a little more modern, but they all cost an arm and a leg. I did see a used '05 FJR for $10K and only 2300 miles on Monday.

Well there's always theft. Or drug dealing.

I was thinking custom waterjet cut parts and use company time on Pro/E designing them.



If that doesn't work, the theft option sounds appealing. HAHA

<blockquote>"We suspect that these bags may be better suited to a bike with a more conventional rear seat, like a KLR or something with a similar inclination to venture off the beaten path and into harm's way."</blockquote>



Yeah, not so much.



I've got a KLR650 and bought a set of the Ortleibs to use as saddlebags. On the first ride the muffler melted both the right side bag and the plastic bodywork under the bag.



On a positive note, I moved them forward where they serve reasonably well as tank panniers. Wouldn't buy them again, tho.
