ordering luggage online thinking you can just return them if you don't like them is a BAD idea. shipping them back will cost you bucks. better to get on the tiger thread and scope out the various options.

and to save 30%++ try www.motorcycle-luggage-shop.com. you may have wait a few weeks, but well worth it.

good luck

Thanks for the link. BTW saw Managua in your signature. I went to a wedding a couple of year back and loved it. I was in Chinandega and Managua.

I actually did a ride to homestead thanksgiving morning. Went to a buddy's restaurant down there. Excellent Cuban food and shakes. Let me know if any of you want to take a ride there. This weekend is no good for me but the next one I can.

Let's plan a ride. I rode to Key West on a day ride last saturday with the GF (really enjoyed it).

I'd love to meet some of you and learn new rides. Pretty new to adventure riding. Rode the Speed four to work this morning and weather is fantastic.

I bought an old Jeep Wrangler that I'm focused on since I really couldn't find many dual-sports to adventure-ride with (considering that I tend to explore areas slick tires rarely go, and that my schedule isn't favorable to most here). I've been focused on fixing the Jeep up.

I still get wet when it rains, I don't have doors, I don't wear a helmet (but probably should since this thing really isn't safe), it has no heat and my windshield wipers don't work. My gas gauge might as well not be there since it's grossly inaccurate and bounces around a lot, the ride quality is that of a motorcycle that has a lot of suspension stiction, and two of the other gauges don't work. Closest thing to motorcycling I've ever been in while on four wheels. Going to get tires on it today

LOL that is funny. There is a jeep meet that occurs every Thursday at the Carolina Ale house in Doral. I've been there with the FJ a few times. Those guys are planning events ALL the time.

There is also another smaller meet I believe at the McDonald's in sunrise blvd. 13655 W sunrise. they have a group in facebook called South Florida 4x4 off road.

The one at Carolina Ale House starts around 8pm and goes past midnight. (Ale house has a DJ and they also dive the parking lot in two. Half for trucks and half for bikers)

The one in Sunrise is every Wednesday and starts at 8:30pm
