Can't wait to read and learn more and get this thing dirty!

The Africa didn't come with any cases, so I spent some time Sunday fabing up a temproary trunk until I can get some cases. Not sure if I want to get side cases or just run a rear case as a trunk.

Wavshrdr Congrats on the new ride. The N GA mountains are some great places to ride. I am in N. FL and try to get up there when I can. Some very good riding around Toccoa that isn't as well known as some other areas. A lot of great fire roads.

1. The Honda bags will break on the first fall
2. Hard bags may injure you during a fall


Also put on a set of Shinko 804/805's Great tires!
Thanks for the input on the bags. TBH I think I will run a rear case, to keep the bike skinny. Are you in GA? I am only 4 miles from the GA line in Alabama. LMK if you wanna meet up and ride sometime.

Where were you riding in NGA, just curious. I know a lot of N GA, I lived there for 5 years before running from high GA taxes over into Alabama.
