    Ready to ride. I moved the top case back, added lights to case, top rack. Now I am ready for my touring. On the seat I made a cover for the air pad (forget the brand name) so water will not stop me from riding. On the fake tank I added a map cover, Out front I added new driving lights. All tested and ready to go.

    Looks good, nice set up MJC!! You really have made the most of your storage space. Can you tell me about the tall bag sitting on the passenger seat, like what brand is it? I cant make out the logo on the back of it but it looks familiar.

    it is a Kuryakyn full dresser bag, 25 tall by 15 wide by 12 deep. it has two hard shelves that come up about 2/3's of the 25" so you can fold down about 6-8" of the top of the bag when not in use. you should be able to find one on ebay. they do not make them any more. if you do get one make sure you get the rain cover and the wheels are still on the bag. many remove the wheels to make it fit better on the rear rack. new cost $250, used $125 to $150 with shipping. On a side note if you set it up like i did, you will not be able to open your top case with the bag on the seat. but the bag does have small side bags. That is one of the resons i need the small bag on the top case rack. hope that helps, mj

    Tell me about the map case you selected, MJC. What brand? Where'd you get it? How is it attached, please?

    I want a map case for my upcoming trip. Can't decide which one would be good to use on the CTX. I have one that's years old, but it's magnetic.

    It is a Wolfman Luggage Map Pocket, for the Explorer Lite Tank Bag. it is 9 by 13" long, it is installed with hook and loop, the back of the map pocket comes with hook. I got new 3M hook and loop, and installed the loop on the cover of the fake tank. one on top edge, one on bottom and one in the middle. The hook and loop was $4, and comes 3 " wide by 5" long. I remove the map cover and roll it up when not in use but the slef glued loop stays on the bike. I was able to get a used tank cover and saved my good one in case I sell the bike (thanks ofDave). There is one on Ebay from the guy I got mine from, $17 w/ free shiping, last one.....

    Looks good. Besure to test it under heavy winds to see how those tall bags effect the handling.

    Finished installing the Mutazu rear rack assembly on the Silver Bullet, and got itchy for a ride. Threw on the Dream Apparel saddle bags and the Nomad trunk bag and went for a 50 mile "county cruise". Will install Effem Tee's closet rod mod next.

    Sooo happy spring is finally here....

    OK, not my first bike picture (s) of 2018. But, after all, it's almost June!

    I was out wandering around on the CTX this morning and thinking how nice that we haven't had blistering heat yet in the Central Valley (California). Our record highs in May have hit well above the 100 degree mark, but this year it's been mostly in the mid 70's with only a few 80 degree days. As I enjoyed the weather I put my mental navigation system on auto-pilot and found myself in the old west town of Folsom. I found a couple of places to get photos of the bike with the cities name in view for reference. Since Johnny Cash made the city and its prison such easy to recognize places, I thought I'd put a few of them here.

    The "Escape Folsom" sign was pretty cool. The Johnny Cash Memorial Bicycle Trail is only a short distance from here.
