I opted not to go with the quick-release mount. Ultimately meant having to direct bolt the box to the plate. Maybe for the quick-release version, it would position better for passenger comfort/support . I'll be checking it regularily - any sign of excess flex, off comes the grab bar.

Me on the right and my buddy Tyler playing by the river


Not a very impressive hill climb, but in street trim nonetheless...


Always time to throw the horns up!

A quick video of me storming this little trail. Check the end when I brush against a large wooden post with my left bag. Gotta love my buddy's reaction! No damage to speak of but funny.....

Finally mounted the GSA wheels.

I eventually tracked down two GSA spoked wheels, as I really like the black rims.
I've only just mounted them, here's a few snaps from a short dirt route between Boyne Island & Gladstone, just to try them out.

Bravo! You will only grow more and more fond of the machine as you log the miles. What was the previous owner doing with not riding this thing?
