    This may be unorthodox, maybe even heresy, but I added a Honda luggage rack and Honda top case to the Touratech panniers. I’m planning to ride from here in Massachusetts out to visit my son in California and back this fall, and I think I’ll need the added space. Riding around town, I don’t use the panniers, so I wanted the option of just running with the OEM Honda top case.Tewster becomes NC750X fan.-ed9fd72e-d5ca-470f-b9ef-ab5641f78f1a-jpg

    Your opinion is the most important! Do what you want!

    I think a top case is great. I prefer to not have side bags when not needed.

    Side cases are a big drag on fuel economy, so running a top case only, when the panniers are not needed makes perfect sense.

    Good luck on your cross country trip! That’s a respectable challenge. I hope the seat on that bike is a good one.

    I’m actually averaging the same mpg as before I put on the tusks. I was expecting it to go down, but it’s staying the same. I was pleasantly surprised!

    Good for you Brian, make sure you let us all know when you are getting ready to leave so we can follow along and possibly meet up with you along your route. Who knows, during that time of year and the high temps you just may want to come straight across I-90(through Montana Yellowstone, Tetons, Glacier Nat Park, Idaho and then down the coast).. you know, just sayin' :{)
