Since this will be our first two up trip on the Strom and our first since the accident, I decided I wanted to make sure we did not have any issues. I wanted to add a socket to run the air pump from the bike, but more importantly, to run the XM car adapator on our trip. I also wanted to get her Heated vest set up and working as well, as it could be chilly in the mornings for her.
I went over to my friends Dave house so he could help me (really do it) install these little things. I also wanted to get his advice on how to mount the bags on the bike. He did a great job and I was a wonderful coach.
Here is the set up under the seat of the wee strom.
I ordered the Neslon Riggs SB-900 bags after reading the V-strom board and seeing that they seemed to work pretty well on the bike. We need to be able to carry enough gear for 3-5 day trips, but the hard Givi bags just do not allow my beautiful passenger to have enough foot room on the Pillion pegs. I love the way the softbags look and they came with rain covers. The hardware for the Givi bags works well with the Nelson Riggs. I am very happy with them. We will write more after our trip.
