I went for a ride today. First one for 2018. I like riding my VFR so it was time for a ride. A few bits of imagery that some in this thread may like.

Melbourne was mid 20s (degrees Clausius throughout this post) today. Yea (north was going to be 40. But I like the pies in Yea. I was hungry, so I went to Yea. It was at least 40 in Yea.

It was hot in Yea. That's 106 in the old scale.

That's why no one was in Yea. Except for a couple of fools. Actually it didn't feel that hot, wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

So then I decided the Eildon-Jamison road looks good. Let's go to Jamison. 

Jamison wasn't much cooler.

But my bike found some shade.

So then I went up the mountain thinking it might be cooler there. It was, a little. But the view was spectacular.

I also like my bike. A lot. So here is a photo of it at the lookout.

I did tell you that I like it a lot.

I then managed to race a couple of harleys down the mountain. That was fun. The riders were pretty good too.

Then it got cooler, and I found another mountain. So I thought I would take a selfie with the mountain.

Back through the Black Spur. Melbourne being typical Melbourne thought well if 40 wasn't enough before, you need some rain now. That provided some cooling at least.

There weren't some bad views there either.

You mean that ? 

It's a protection for tank, carbon imitation

What is the device you have mounted between the handlebars?

I would say it’s a phone in a waterproof box

It's an aqua box mounted with a ram mount. It holds my GPS.

The mounting hardware on this is quite well integrated. I do like that. What are the two round black things on the left rear fairing?

Agreed!

 

Those are inputs for my heated gear to plug into, the temp control knobs are on the left mid inner panel in that same pic, works great!

Thanks for the photos, and nice setup. What size is the rear luggage case?  Is the the 30l or 45l?

Palomar Mountain - Also known as the highway to the stars.

I did a few decent runs up and down before this shot was taken.  My last real good tear on the bike before I put her away for my deployment to the pacific.

And also,  her at the moment.

Autumn in Bright, Victoria Australia. My regular riding fix for scenery, mountains and a few twistys! Usually head there for a couple of days at a time, its 375k's from where I live.

Cheers..

Hmmm.....  nice touring setup, 'cept for that tankbag....  🤢

Granted, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it does not look safe to me... 

(I have a couple of decades of experience with magnetic tankbags....)

 

She deserves better your bike, she really does... :tongue:

Thanks Dutch. I'm actually really enjoying the tank bag, it's magnetic so I can put it exactly where I want, (thank you Honda for the metal tank, I hate that so many bikes now have the tank under a plastic panel), it was awesome for laying on cranking out miles across beautiful countrysides, I had a nice little pocket behind the Puig windscreen. Fits a water bottle on each side pocket, another removable pocket at the crotch for small things, and an expandable main compartment which makes a great touring pillow, and map pocket. The only downside is it's not waterproof, I sprayed it with some waterproofing and keep what's in the main compartment in a roll top waterproof bag. A tremendous value IMO for new $50 shipped, I bought 2 and use the other as a tail bag, it has 4 loops the work perfect to carabiner to the 4 loops underside the rear seat, here's a pic from last year before I had the rear trunk.
