Same here CF ...I managed France on my kwacker 250 just holding her own on the autostrada.... But even that required patience and determination. I'd just about had enough doin just 60 miles on my 125 to the NABD rally at the weekend :/

Custom cruisers are a drag tho Sirbob..... (my virago is anyway) If it had been my Honda CB100N then it would've bin a different story.....

Sounds like there might be hope for me yet .So Jw you went to the rally on a 125 how did you manage to get all your gear on ?

With great difficulty Copperfox.....and a little help from my bro who has much experience loading bikes. However...I have to say (although I had a fab time) that the gear I took was minimal so I was extremely cold during the night and very uncomfortable. No inflatable mattresses for me...oh no! And my joints felt every lump and stone in the ground. It was rather a last minute decision to go on my own so my next rally...I'm hoping to have some adaptations made so I can load more stuff to make life more tolerable.
