I'm picking up a Gen II a few states away and riding it home. I'll be on the bike for close to a week, so I need to set it up with some luggage. Ideally, I'd like to get a rear rack that I can strap a dry bag to, and then set up some soft saddlebags. My questions are these:
I'm looking to go to fatbars on my 1st gen and was wondering what everyone is using. Right now I have stock risers that have been flipped around with a set of mini bend MX bars that are good everywhere except width. I'm looking for a set of risers that can be offset to either the front or rear...

I just purchased a set for my VFR to take advantage of a $50 VISA rebate card, bringing a pair down to $230 CAD (~$175 USD) which is a great value for a tire...

What would be a safe AFR to set on my cruising map? 14, 14.5 what do you think?
