    Top boxes

    Think the smaller top box to much? I have not come up with easy latching system yet wondering if to high (the milk crate).image.jpgimage.jpg

    Or forget the top boxes and clean up the garage?

    5,100 miles on tires, looks a little better with gravel dust washed off. Tires z6 Metzelers not much tread in center when tires were new may not get 10,000 plus miles from this set thinking I will get a new set before the long demanding ride to Des Moines for the rally

    Got the dot truck stuff stuck the red on the bags to make them much more visible, the stuff on milk crates covers the property of ****** dairy label. The light stuff on fairing does not look to bad but realy shows up at night when light hits ( under the R1100RS logo)

    Looks like top box cooling won't be a problem.
