More money spent...

Today I ordered my Givi top box for the Tiger.

E52N
E95S
E97
E250

I don't even know what the final price is, but my local dealer got it on order for me today. I almost ordered the top rack as well, but I am not sure i will ever need that much.

Next to order.... Crash bars.

I will be headed to Florida, Via Burlingon NC to meet up with RidgeRunner.
We are going to head down the mountains and take a couple days to make the trip (or at least we think).

Sounds great. I did a lot of touring on my last bike. Here's a neat link to micapeak. Has some great checklist generators:

I think Mike's next trip will probably be to DC. Has some work in Congress or something.

Congress was today only.

Roadtrips hopefully will be spent en route to Raleigh.

Anyone have old Spanish books I can have?

Raleigh????? You were only an hour away? What was her name? Maybe now that my party planning days are over, I can get some free time to get up into VA. Anniversary trip down the BRP is around the corner, followed by a side trip to VA. Beach. Then Nov. comes the doozy!

And what is all this noise about Congress? Lobbying to add the ever-elusive Triumph Tiger to the endangered species list?

You know... by the time you guys get done modding out these Adventure bikes, your gonna be driving a small car. Only difference will be your wearing helmets.

Helmets!

I think the gas in my truck has started to turn since I haven't driven it for so long. Riding everyday to work is gratifying on more than one level.

Well, it has happened before.

James, give me a call if you are looking to ride out here. Bring the wife and I can show you guys around. There is a historic Fire Hydrant Dayrock can show you!

Heading to the dealership in a few minutes to pick up Factory Suzuki handguards, and a Factory touring windscreen (taller & wider). Still contemplating the Suzuki grip warmers. (Yes, I actually found them, and they are plug-n-play. $150)

James, probably the best way to go. I have the throttle tube for the tiger in my pannier. You almost saw me this weekend, but when you said you had school work, I went a different direction.

Looks good Mike. And you are right, that tent is huge. The E52 isn't as big as I thought it would be. Have you ridden with it full yet?

I have ridden with it half full. The wind resistance is more significant than the weight. I lose 2mpg with the box up there.
