Red face Hello from Lake County, Illinois

Haven't been riding for the last 30 years -

Got my SCR late April, not even a mile on it ...
After a bit less than a 1000 miles , I am very happy with my choice.



Got the Fehling rack system, and a set of Chase Harper bags ...

Welcome!
Glad to see some new blood join the forum. We need it bad.
Also glad you like your SCR. It's one of those bikes you either really like it or you don't.
You've rolled enough miles to where you would know by now.
It surprises me how many are for sale with really low miles.
Like Jay said, keep the photos coming.

Someday, you'll own some Yamahas

The rack and bag carrier are from Fehling



https://www.fehling.de/index.php?con...id=12&lang=eng


I ordered them early May, they shipped quickly from the factory, took a month to arrive, because of COVID-19 ...
Installation was a breeze.


It is not really a back rest, but it is high enough to prevent my wife from sliding off the seat
