    Yep, gotta have the new passenger grab handles as well. The plastic cutting is true but overblown, I think. I cant even see/notice the cuts on my '12 until I open the rear seat to refuel, and even then I have to be reminded to look for it in order to notice.
    I have all Honda stuff: saddlebags & mounts, rear rack, and trunk. To be completely truthful, I have them because that's how the dealer had the bike on the showroom floor, and I got a truly excellent deal. That said, stylistically I strongly prefer the Honda stuff to all aftermarket alternatives. Also, and apparently in contrast to many, I prefer the further-forward mounting point of the Honda top case/trunk. It disrupts the balance of the bike a bit less, and again it looks better to me. My wife does find it slightly tight mounting, but likes the fit once aboard.

    Another +1 for the sw-motech rack.

    I have both the top rack and side rack (With Givi trekkers on them) looks good with the boxes on, and in about 60 seconds and 9 quick release fasteners the bike looks basically stock (save the alu rack, and a few small mounting points for the side racks.)

    Though I'll probably never actually bring the bike back to look stock... boxes are useful and look good, don't really effect the handling of the bike that much (you'd think a big top box would, but so far it really hasn't.) But it's nice to know that I can do it quickly if I want to.

    I will get a photo of mine with and without tonight. Heading off again this weekend, so the bike will be all packed up again.

    You are going to freeze tomorrow night . I would ride down with you guys tomorrow, but it wont be above freezing at my house until late in the morning and I just don't want to be that cold or put all my cold riding gear on. You guys have a safe/fun trip.

    The size difference is obvious. And that's how it looks installed without any plastic "arts and crafts".

    I think the Daytona looks great and is a bargain. What rear tire are you running on your bike? How does it do on-road an off-road?

    I got my original rack from Honda for free. As a veteran biker, I have gotten over that "don't cut anything on my new bike" syndrome. Cut away, it is not visible.

    I have all the Honda luggage and to me it's the best looking luggage. It fits tight to the bike and the styling works with the bike. Its expensive but I didn't want to to compromise.
