Here are a few photos of my Commando, I'm just trying to upload for the first time, so I will apologise now, in case I got the sizing wrong or you just see a blank screen :?

Nothing wrong with that Interstate!!!!

...and no criticism of your buddy with the ZRX, either. I love those bikes, I've got 3 in my garage at the moment.

Its an adjustable hydraulic steering damper ( universal japanese thingy ),
stops the bike shaking her head when fully loaded , two up, also makes it very stable at speed on the motorway. Slows the steering down a bit on the twisties but I like the stability.

Hi Shaggy

NICE bike !

What luggage rack have you got fitted on there?

Hi Alan, Its a universal Krauser system from the late 80's, the rear rack sits a bit high as I have sloped it to follow the contours of the silencers.but it is great for large amounts of luggage, It spoils the look of the bike but does an excellent job.I mount it from the grab handle support brackets onto the rear frame rail and then to the pillion pegs.

The picture below may explain why I use a steering damper !!!!!!

Nice to see she's more than just a Sunday toy then! I take it 'er indoors insists on taking her make-up bag on holiday then :lol:

I will have to keep my eyes peeled for the Krauser rack, very handy.

Yep, that sounds good, let me know the dates when you get them, my only problem is I work one weekend on then one off, so it just depends when it falls. I'm planning on going up to the ' Stormin the Castle' Rally / party on Sept 5th/ 6th.

I think its the 6 / 8 berth Teepee tent , for two of us, that really loads her up.
The rest is just beer and wine :D

Will do!

Meantime don't forget the NOC Golden Jubilee event at Donington race circuit on Friday 29th June (includes track time) and classic bike racing over the weekend as well. Should be fun :D
