Thanks for the input, harsh as it is.
How do you carry your stuff on a long ride if you don’t have a rack to strap a bag onto?
Maybe you are pavement scratcher and dont do long rides but down here I use this for intercity visits and Sunday fun with a group of other old farts......some of whom have better bikes than this. We all take wet weather gear, tools, puncture kit, visor cleaning equipment, spare undies etc.
This is the F model after all.
I had Givi hard panniers on my Bandit 1250... very useful.
Your comment re the high bar on my rack is accurate and deserved. I thought it should be lower too.
I tried undoing the two locking bolts but they were rusted in place and being an expert mechanic I sheered both off.
Working on a solution to that now.
Thanks gentlemen for your comments.
I have seen the screens for sale in approximately eight colour/ shades on Aliexpress quite cheaply so once the spending for the holiday season is done I may well get a replacement.
I usually prefer understated liveries... the current screen is definitely not that.
I noticed a dull patch on my reflective screen, I tried to clean it away but no success.
I have purchased a replacement in gloss black for $NZ46 and am now thinking of a matt black spray can for the one I currently have....good old matt black is the cure all for any appearance issues.
