Bought her brand new in Dec. of '03 and have enjoyed every year/mile. She's currently scattered throughout my garage after getting things repaired/replaced/upgraded from an accident that happened back in April of '19, and I'm hoping to get her reassembled after I get all of my other projects done. :cry:

Her first night home:

As she sat before the accident:

Absolutely beautiful bike! 120k too! I hope that you are able to get her back out on the road, you both deserve it!

Love these touring packs y'all have on your bikes! How much did these setups cost?
I got mine from Amazon for about 60 bucks. It attaches to the luggage rack I already had on the bike...

prkuehn‘s appears to be a HD pack (judging by the side hinges), those are considerably better built but cost a lot more.

Before you buy one, make sure to also include the cost of painting it in your decision.

Mine is a HD King tour pack. I bought the tour pack for $500 and spent about $225 to have it painted. It sits atop a custom bracket that also holds my saddle bags. I have a friend that does metal fabrication and he built it for $250. Total in the TP is about $1k.



I rattle canned the bracket with matching paint from Colorrite.
