Mounted rear rack & bag on the DRZ

I finally got around to getting a rear rack for my DRZ-400E. I found that CycleGear's Frank Thomas tank bag was a perfect fit for the rack. Here are the picturesTank bag worked perfect, and expands to work even better!

Wrench night

Had a few people come by the shop last night to do some maintenance and hang out. I was way overdue for an oil change, so I did that (as always using Honda HP4 gold synth oil and Honda filter).

Importance of proper riding gear!

06/07: Thursday night, the DFWSBR group met up at Duke's in Addison for dinner. Great turnout and good conversation out on the deck. Even though it was hot! About 9:15pm, we all geared up to head down to Greenville. Since there were a lot of us, I headed to the back parking lot to just help us get spread out. When everyone else was ready, they started to roll out, but via a different direction. I headed around the back lot to follow them, and before I knew it... my CBR was sliding about 10 ft...
