Went on a 250 mile trip this weekend and used the Honda easy bags pack. I'm not sure they are the most cost effective solution, but they are good quality and fit well. Certainly enough space for an overnight stay. One thing I noticed when on the motorway, is that there is quite a lot of high frequency vibration through the right bar - enough to wish it had cruise control. I'm guessing that it may smooth out with some miles. Changing the mode to sport helped - in that the engine braking is reduced. In standard, the engine braking is so strong that if you remove you right hand off the bar, there is quite a risk of being shunted from behind.

Just fitted an Arrow Pro Race titanium end can today. 5 minute job and it's small size shows the back wheel off nicely. An added bonus is that it feels about 3KG lighter then the original!

It does have a deeper tone and sounds great - not too noisy. In the UK, I managed to get it for just over £300. I think thats around half the price of the official Akro - and I think it looks nicer. Bargain.
