Very interesting. I have never seen a green handle gasoline pump. Not saying they don't exist, but in my travels I have never came across one.

Same here. I wanted to stay away from the bulk of rear racks. I just can't have a bag that sticks out wider than my bars, doesn't work too well in the trees.

Bag is not plastic, it's textile.

For the LED turn signals, go to Napa and buy a $30 solid state electronic flasher. Very common due to most motorcycles not coming with solid state flashers from the factory.

I remember the WABDR being way more difficult to navigate as compared to the ORBDR. WABDR had a lot of Y's and steep terrain that made GPS routing challenging at times.
