My wife will only ride on the back of my bike for very short distances.

She misses my old RT...  maybe someday I'll get another two-up machine.

Hey Silverside.

Bike looks great. I've done the same trip on a GS but I'd love to go back on my S1000R. So ... a couple of questions:

Did you suffer from paint rubbing from the bags as seems common?

Did you risk leaving the bags on the bike unattended at all? Or find a way to secure them with a lock?

Cheers,
Tim

Yeah the paint rubbed because I forgot to put the protective film on my bike doh 😝 apart from that the bags were brilliant , left them on the bike if we were close by but not overnight although we kept anything valuable in the tank bag which I took with us when we stopped 😀
Bike was fantastic the whole trip fast and comfy 👌fingers crossed we can all get out this summer 😀
