Mine would have been done yesterday, but I decided to reroute the wiring and modify my old aluminum tail-rack to work with the SW-Motech stuff. Got my Givi Trekker panniers last week!

I bought oem Honda bags when I bought the bike. Took 'em home in the box. Just got around to opening the box the other day, and found the wrong bags. Oh well, Abernathy's is shipping me the correct ones, along with a shipping label to return the wrong ones. Just a little time lost is all.. The weather has sucked anyway...

Thanks, Gringo. It's a Rick Mayer seat. Got it in the off-season--Rick usually runs great deals late fall or winter.

I think the back end of my bike is too wide now. Not sure I can get it by the cars and down the driveway...

Okay, I'm in! Good cause, plus I want to see if Clocklaw can finish a Walk.

I vote Gerald wear a GoPro for the event and post a time-lapse of the walk!

Don't you worry, I can do it.....Brenda and I walk for FATT - Friedreich Ataxia Team Travis.....I have a friend (Travis) that suffers from Friedreich Ataxia. We walk for him every year we can. This year, it happens that the walk is on my Birthday......

And thanks for the sponsorship Dan-o!
