    I had one but only wore it in the rain. My cheesy rain gear (Frog Toggs) are reflective

    How do you guys generally carry around your papers etc when you're on the bike? Under the pillon? I want to stop carrying my backpack around everywhere....

    I pretty much use my messenger bag for papers, but have thought about getting a tank bag of some sort. The price of sportbike living is being vain and not wanting to clutter up the lines of my HP4.

    Although actually, I should sell the damn thing - it honestly is not being ridden enough or to its capabilities.

    Hmmm - HP4 comp, sell and get a Multistrada and maybe a Panigale?

    Or hell, this Huge Moto kit looks fucking amazing.

    I guess I have a pilllion bag but I hate having to throw my leg over it if all that's in it is a few papers. I'd also feel uncomfortable leaving it parked with all that stuff somewhere. I'll see if I can get a good ziplock bag for under there.

    Also, don't worry. The bigger bike stupidity wore off. There's more to bikes than riding them fast in a straight line.

    I realized I have much to learn. After riding a bit more this season, I'm going to take the 2nd tier basic rider course. I want to do this one since it'll allow me to use my bike and also because it'll be at slightly faster speeds, which means that it'll translate well to the real world. It also happens to be half the cost, which is nice. I'm still considering the basic rider course but haven't found anything compelling to make me do so.

    @ Cool

    Went to the semi-local BMW/Ducati/Harley dealer just to browse. Shot the shit with a salesman and he asked what I rode. He told me to come back with my gear and test ride some bikes anytime. I immediately thought of you and started to chuckle

    When Huge Moto first announced this, they said it would fit the CBR600RR with a little modding. I think the kit would be better suited to the 600, and they'd sell more as the planets crawling with low-sided middle-weights.
