loving it. although with 17lbs of catfood in the right bag and and empty left bag, it likes to go right more.. hahaaa. ;)

but seriously, it's perfect for me since i don't do any hard trails or anything. fuel mileage is acceptable considering i'm mostly 75mpg highway with both cases.

Tip for the day....

Always use the left side for the heavy stuff .. Do to road crowns...

Been doing that my whole life .. From Trailers to bikes....

Try it out sometime ... It really does help....

The new Karoo 3 tires are in! Morton's got two sets and I think they are both sold but they have more on the way. I'm looking forward to seeing how these work out.
