Here's mine: 1982 Honda CM250

. It basically wants to cruise around 55-60. I'm completely ok with that. I don't want to do 80 MPH on the highway, I just don't think that would be fun.

I've got mine set up on a budget. I bought some Weaver nylon saddle bags for a farm supplement store. I acquired a sissy bar from ebay on the cheap (25$) So now I can attach a mid-size backpack to it. I can also lean my big backpacking pack + sleeping pad up against it too.

I just "made" a homemade tank bag out of one of my wife's old purses. It's just a nyon bag that I sewed a welding magnet into.

I've got my RAM mount for my street pilot that works really great, I do kind of worry that it gets shaken a little too much, can anyone calm my worries? I also added a 12V outlet to charge it.

( When I got the bike it had two mismatched mirrors, I found a pair of like new Harley mirrors on craigslist for 10$, the stems are too small for the metric hole, so I just got some fasteners from the hardware store to mount them)

I made a new farkle for the bike. This was a video camera bag that I bought from a yard sale for $0.50. I cut off what wasn’t needed and sewed on some patches. I used some nylon webbing and buckles to attach them to the forks. It will make a good bag for stuff on this super touring 250 ;)
