Trunk

Today I took off my custom made backrest and put on a new comie trunk. I use their special washers, but used my own hardware. Better quality and more of it. Now I don't have to strap my lunch. Don.

Nice work, looks good...Bet it was pretty hard to find one in the right color.... ROFL.. Just kidding.
It is kinda hard to find the right size tho, personally I didn’t want something that looks like you’re delivering 30 pizzas in it, but then too, you do want to be able to actually carry things in it. I had that same top case on my KLR. Right now I have the 25L Bumot EVO for my everyday commute but I’m still gonna order the 41L for travel (yea, I carry TO much crap on vacations). I also have their panniers to carry even more crap with me when I travel...

BTW, that old back rest looked pretty dam comfy, probably doesn’t compare to the new case, huh..

I don't know about comfy.😁. I put it on for safety. Thanks for the compliment. Think we're gonna go with the Nelson-rigg 3050 dry bags on the sides. I'm also going to scoot them back a tad bit so my wife had a little more foot room. It would also give me more area for foot adjustment.

Tho I never actually measured it; my ATAS dose seem more roomie than my last bike, well at least the other half doesn’t seem like she’s wedged between me and the top box.

Probably the taller seat and handlebars. I spent a lot of time on a couple of 2017's before buying my ATAS. I'm comfortable on the AT, and I fit the tank cutouts perfectly. The leg angle on the ATAS with the seat in the high positiion is better for me - but the tank cutouts are different and I have to sit back a bit to clear them. I like the ATAS suspension and having a larger tank - I just can't understand why they made it with essentially less legroom (hip to knee).

I would think it’s a control issue, moving the riders center of mass a little to off set all that weight of the gas, not only a extra gallon (6ish pounds) but that weight is spread off the center line of the bike farther than a standard AT.. But, that’s just a guess on my part...
