I modded the top box by installing six, plasti dipped, eye hooks around the top to allow use of a cargo net.

I like that set up. ^^^  I want to put my previous tailbag on my CRF but I don't think this old man can kick his leg up high enough to get over it. For now, I'm just using one of my old tank bags bungied to my tailrack.

 Sad           If I had buddies that liked that kind of riding I'd buy one of them there little adventure(has a box strapped on) bikes too.

I used the twist ties with the metal inside and a few zip ties for back up.

I rode it, of course.

That bridge is bypassed. I rode off the new road through the brush over to the old road. Then I rode down into the old ditch line and over to the falls. The worst part was that the top of the rock was slick as snot. I was concerned that I might not be able to ride back out.

Dual-sport bikes are great for going picnicking.





And for getting the view that those other bikes can't.

Climate-change induced erosion.  Lol  The park is officially closed but when riding a dual-sport bike, nothing is truly closed.






Another excellent place ridden to via dual-sport bike:

I do not even try to get my leg over the box. The seat is long enough that as I bring my leg up, I fold my knee so my leg/foot only has to clear the seat.

I'm not sure I can do that. My right femur was badly broken once. Now it is 1 1/4" shorter than the left and has a pretty good/bad bow to it. I'll give it a try though.
