Watch those toes when you're loaded down like that. Pics look good.

if you don't mind me asking...how much weight do you have on top the bike? rider passenger and luggage included. Did you have the preload on the rear set all the way up?

prob about 330 to 340 lbs between both of us. I have never messed with the shock settings, guess I should check into it..

Thanks. My expected 2-up weigh is around 375 so I was curious. If you guys go 2-up again bump up the pre-load and let me know if there are any differences in handling or rides better.

Yeah that looks like sooo much fun. My dad recently took a trip down there from up here in Jersey. He took his K1200LT down, but then rented an ST1300 to take on the Dragon. He said he's never had such an amazing time on a motorcycle. I can only wish to get down there one day!!!

Where do you do that at? The license plate frame on mine is hanging a little lower then it should, I had it off when putting on the saddlebag support brackets, and I didnt notice it till got all put back together that its hanging a little low and not pushed all way up. Going to have to rework that sometime.
