Hi, figured I'd introduce myself.
I'm going to be borrowing a 919 this summer and riding it from south FL to Denver, will be there for 6 weeks then ride it back to FL. I've never owned a 919 but have been on one once. I have had several other bikes and have about 90k street miles under my belt and many years of off road riding and racing.
I'm currently going to law school in MA and will be doing a half-summer internship in Denver, hence the road trip.
the 919 is my dad's, he just bought it.
Any tips on setting it up for the trip would be great. I have soft luggage, a tank bag and a JC Whitney top box I'd like to use, so I'll be needing a rear rack of some sort (SW Motech, Givi and Renntec I've seen, any others to check out?).
I was thinking about a flyscreen, but I really don't want to cause any turbulence or wind noise. Taking some pressure off my chest would be all I'm after. My main bike has been a TL1000S and i quite liked it wind protection in stock form (very small fairing and no real turbulence at all, windshield nearly horizontal).
Here's the 919 I'll be riding
