Hi
Just took my 09 T100 for its first long run - 700kms. It only had 600kms on the clock before this. I put a Ventura rack on for this run so I could strap my swag on to it - it did an excellent job, very sturdy and looks good even when you have nothing attached to it. So for those looking for a rack I would definitely recommend it and the bags that go with them.
The bike didn't miss a beat and easily sat on 125 -130kmh overtaking. One thing I will do is get the 19 tooth sprocket put on so I can drop a few revs for these long rides.
Anyway just thought I'd tell you I love this bike !!!!

Its been years since I've been there, but you have some beautiful country for some long rides. I rented a car and drove down to Albany while I was there. I'd never get off the bike if I lived there.

Nice bike, btw.

Awesome setup! Any pics with the swag setup next to your new T100? It looks like it fits on the rack nicely. How did you pack your other gear?

Fellow '09 T-100 owner here. Mine has been under the knife. Just finished the new front turn signals and running lights...will do a write up but have a look below:
Btw...what kind of exhaust did you install? Did you have the ECM reflashed with the new map?
Is that a tent on the back of your bike?
Best,
George

BigJP - unfortunately I didn't take any other photos with the swag next to the bike. My other gear - which consisted of a toothbrush and wallet etc was packed in the small bag that sits on the rack as well. Will post some more pics when I can.
Biker 7 - The exhaust is Staintune reverse cones, sounds great too. Yes had the ecm re-mapped when I put them on by the dealer. It's not a tent - I dont know what the American term is for a 'swag' ? It's like a bedroll I spose....

Staintunes have a great sound. Congrats on your new Bonny...a beauty.
Ride safe,
