I'm curious... Does the surfboard on the side impact the handling at all?

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Wow, awesome bike cq! I like your style and the surfboard rack. I just got a '09 with a bunch of farkles (I'll post about it later when I have a chance) and I'm looking to outfit it to carry a skateboard for a nationwide skatepark tour!

You obviously can't be as aggressive on dirt with the surfboard, but I think it handles fine. I've been on the HWY at speeds of 80mph with boards up to 7'4" and have had no problems.

subafreak, that sounds rad! I'm hoping to ride to Central and South America within the next year or two, so I'm hoping to perfect every aspect of the bike for that trip. Oughta be interesting

Good plan man, I'm hoping to do the same thing in a couple years. I figure there is a lot of cool stuff in the USA to see first though. Good luck with the mods dude, keep us updated!

Love the way the gas and water tank stack together. Hows the wolfman enduro tank bag holding up ? wasn't sure it would last for my use.

wanger88, the rotopax are definitely a great addition. I frequent Baja, and there aren't many places to get gas or water, so these certainly help. For my needs, the tank bag is perfect. It has been through some rain and a lot of sunshine, and shows no evidence of wear. I primarily use it for small tools, sunscreen, maps, wallet, chapstick, food, and sunglasses. Perfect durable little bag.
