You know, if Dowco made some substantially sized saddlebags, you wouldn't have to mount aircraft clearance lights on the top of the sissybar stack. It would probably result in a lot better cg, stability, and gas mileage (less wind drag).

That Main Bag would be great if you were a motorcycle riding ventriloquist.



I'd put my wooden KP in it and ride to Ed's lounge.

Damn, That's a clean Virago! Sorry, off topic I know.

Exactly right. That Hang 'Em High photo is an example of how NOT to pack a motorcycle - as much weight as possible as far as possible from the bike's CG. And talk about sail! Dave Hough's hair would fall out if he saw that picture. Give us large capacity saddlebags and a moderate sized tail bag.

Buz could really tote a lot of flood insurance contracts to New Meixco in that lot.

OK so there is this daily need of transporting things so luggage is useful there. But what I really don´t understand is why people have this silly need of hauling stuff on a bike when they go travelling. Almost like a bunch of prissy hausfraus. When I rode 3000 km from Rio to Buenos Aires I had zero luggage. OK so I had to take a bum bag for the emergency rain pants but that was only because in Fat Boy you can´t put anything under the seat. Think minimalist.

I'm guessing you didn't smell real good when you got there.



I thought you lived in Finland.

The luggage holds bandages, salves and spare chaps.



The bandages and salves are for treating the lash wounds from the handlebar tasthless (said with a lispth)



Still haven't figured out exactly what chaps are for.
