[quote="cdscoot"]Bunker . Your bike will last a long time if you over service it especially when it is new. You want to get the metal wearing in out of the bike.

Re: Sidecar fender luggage

Here is how we used ours from our trip last summer. Just a couple standard bungie straps kept things in place. After many people recommending it, I plan to get some Rok Straps though. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/VCliZ1CvE76PNAMyW5L2h1fl3rKn8iBue1jqTrJ9AXYk07jbEQX40Pnvq74A6jVUNT2it5faZEnYJw3V0...

Re: Inaugural ride; random thoughts

Awesome! I had the same fear about the purchase. Got my second ride in yesterday and love it also. I have the tourist and I can say the seat on it is supportive and comfy even for my 250 pounds. Good luck! Enjoy.
