Thanks. I based the look on an old Police Triumph motorcycle my father rode in the 60's. It had a tall windscreen and black fiberglass side cases. When I find out the old number plate registration I will add it to the front bumper plate.The panniers, shield, and dual racks look surprisingly well-proportioned to the bike. I like it. I've always thought of our Bonnevilles as a modern version of the /6 BMWs. Your bike backs up this assertion pretty well...
Touratech fiting and removal is pretty easy, there are two large threaded wheels inside the case which secure an L shaped bolt to the frame, just slacken the bolt and the bolt drops loose. The cases are very secure on the frame.Not pretty but sure looks functional. Looks like you could go the Long Way Round with those.
How hard is it to remove them when you don't need them? What seat is that?
I find the scram seat to be very comfortable but I take your point about the rack that comes with seat, I would only use it for lighter items and heavier items could go on the Hepco and Becker rack or fit a Givi top case.Wow - I kind of dig the whole set up - very functional. I wouldn't personally use the scram seat because I don't think that rack is very strong, but I like what you have done there.
At around 70 with no windscreen I always felt like the bike and I were trying to seperate. With the parabellum in place I can have a cup of tea and a scone whilst reading the Times.How does that parabellum work for you at 70mph! Could you smoke a cig behind it? lol
Agreed. That said, I wish I had that set up when I rode from SF Bay Area to Portland, OR (and back) in a pissin' rainstorm (as opposed to my leather saddle bags and flyscreen).Not pretty but sure looks functional.
