OK this is it for today from me. Just a joke sort of - when I brought in my hard bags the cycle guys laughed and said to my husband that I could run away from home with those bags. They commented that I could probably put the kitchen sink in them. That's when I told them about the spigot option I passed on. Hope some of you are in climates where you can still ride! Enjoy.
I am busy with my map of the US, putting in little dots of all the places I want to visit and where we have friends to see. I am so excited I can hardly wait for winter to be over.
To keep the candle burning, I bought the book Maximum Control to read over the winter. It's pretty good and there are some good tips and some maneuvers I need to practice before hitting the big highway west.

I considered these too but opted for real hard bags since we'll have to take a laptop with us for my husband, lest he come down with a case of work withdrawal. On my old Honda I have a hard top case which is so handy to drop in junk like phones, wallets, and laptop all of which you want secure and don't want wet - ever.

Have any of you noticed the location of the built-in helmet lock on the 500? On my bike at least it looks like if I used it my helmet would drop down onto the hot muffler. It doesn't look like a particularly useful location for a full helmet.
On my Honda I have a built-in helmet lock and I use it all the time. I hope to find an aftermarket lock I can add on to the frame somewhere. Any suggestions as to a good location or brand of lock that has worked for you?
