She looks great! My shop had a twin to yours and she really pops in the sunlight. Sounds like a nice trip and I for one would enjoy any comments and photos you may get time/care to share about your travels and how the bike is working out as a long distance steed.Noob to R18 TC but many thousands on the others. I bought the Purple Rain Edition so I can act like the fat, 50 year old prince (sans Apollonia since wife doesn't ride) on a ride from Pittsburgh to Napa and beyond mid May. I've been outfitting the bike for some long road action, but I have to say that "farkle-ism" is a relatively unknown phenomena in R18 realms. I offer these items for anybody who might want to see how an R18 can be junked up for road life.
The pics are annotated with madness. Also, I added and SAE and heated coat pig tails direct to battery (almost direct). Given the tight battery compartment, I used the positive lug on the right side of the bike for positive connection and slid the battery out just a little for the negative. Solid connection points with lots of room to make routing pretty under the seat.
That's it. I hope something here helps someone live R18 dreams!
Should be an interesting ride as I'm spoiled over the years riding GSA, GTL, and XR for big miles. This should be a different experience - I can't wait! Purple Rain!She looks great!

Thank you, I realise that. Your website says………”Our Heritage QR 2-in-1 Rack combines beauty with functionality………..So that the assembly of luggage does not take much time and does not require the use of straps, we recommend using our mounting plate with a lock and key lock. This plate can be mounted inside the bottom of the bag. It is available in 3 sizes: S, M and L - to be ordered separately”. I was after a link so that I can see the mounting plates, how they work and decide what size I need. Thanks.
You mean that ?Yes, our QR system allows you to mount a bag or top-case on the same rack. a small bag or a 64L top-case - it does not matter
