Some random pics I thought might be enjoyed

I haven't been up to posting ride reports for a while as my Toshiba laptop crapped out, leaving me with just my iPhone for emails and browsing.
I picked up a HP Ultrabook today for a great price and grabbed some pics that had been on the camera for a while.
Here are some pics I like, without any real commentary.
Most are from SE Ohio, West VA, PA, NY State and a little MD.
All from late July and through August.

Re: Some random pics I thought might be enjoyed

It's a Givi ST model.

I don't think it's made any more. Nice thick material and perfect fit. I mean it drops into place.

I have been thinking lately of trying a stock level screen again for a bit to see if a touch cleaner air would be smoother and quieter (even though I am wearing in ear monitors, listening to music mostly), but I think I would miss the protection the larger screen affords my GPS and Sirius radio from weather and bugs, etc.

Dan:
is that the saeng ta microswirl edging on the screen? i've been meaning to supplement my screen/lip setup with microswirl to hopefully get the air bubble to reach the top of my helmet (or at least a bit higher)

Blue72Beetle:

i've been having good luck with a stock-sized puig screen with a laminar touring lip on it. just wish the lip was dark smoke like the screen is.

I love the pannier lights, nice compliment to the stock tail light. Are they wired for brake lights as well?

Nice shots there. Points for using the SV the way you do. I think your bike is the replacement to Ranger's 05 SVT.

No, it's some rounded edging that came with it from Givi. I have some Saeng edging. It's hideous. And the effect I couldn't notice.

Yes, and turn signals as well

Thanks Zuki. Here are a few more from a few days wandering down south (just got home)

Hey! I'm heading to the Dragon next week! Are some of those on the Cherohala Skyway?

I just bought a Puig touring windscreen from another member on here ( https://www.svrider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=163304 ), so I'm looking forward to see how that turns out. But it'll be awhile, I've got the bike apart for suspension upgrades.

No, the stormy pics are on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Have a good ride down next week, and here's to good weather for you

Ahhh, and it's good to know that the Saeng ta isn't very useful. I was pondering getting some at the recommendation of daviddowns2000, but haven't gotten to it. Perhaps one day, but with a laminar touring lip and earplugs, it's not uncomfortable turbulence and noise-wise.

Thanks!
