Thank you! I will likely be a few pounds over max vehicle weight so I knew there could be a problem. Lighter front ends I am use to however not in a road bike. Anyway I did have a concern and will test it carefully. The tire cupping could be due to a mechanical problem. I would go over the whole bike starting with the front end and check the motor mounts if they are bad or not torqued correctly...

Sorry John for making you post those again I thought you had a link to share and now I don't read that into your link. Must have been a brain hiccup.

This, with a 50 liter dry bag and whatever else I need to strap on works for me.

Thank you; the nice thing is, it takes 2 minutes to take the bags and windshield off and the bike is back to normal.

I still have to do the same mod, I already have the 4.5 gallons shovelhead tanks but have to modify the left one to put the EFI fuel pump on it.
