Spent 5 days touring around Brittany on the CB & it was excellent.
Better on Juice than my mates fully faired Bandit 1250GT!

Managed to fit on a 32L Top Box, Kriega 20L Tank Bag & Kriega 35L Rucksack.

The MRA touring screen was a Godsend for hours on the Expressways 200kmph++

Hey Gargy - I had the rucksack as far up my back as it would comfortably go & it just cleared the topbox.

Mind you I am 6'5" so short asses may find it a bit of a 'wedge'

The topbox was a real asset for safely storing my helmet, gloves etc whilst doing the tourist walkabouts en route.

Been thinking about a screen... That one reminds me of a Klingon's forehead.

indeed perfect for touring!

This is how me and the missus (on her street triple) went on my summer holiday, 3,5 weeks with all the camping gear: big 4pers.tent, 2 person airbed, chairs, foldable table, cooking gear, small bbq, clothes, shoes, electricity cable, light etc

No probs at all, even with full tank bag, ortlieb roll and givi case the bike handled perfect.

Thanx mate!

Like i said, a lot of luggage but no probs with the handling of the bike and we dit cover a lot of miles, and mountain passes with it. When we rode the Schwarzalder Hochstrasse on the way back home my rear tire looked like i had been on the track!!
