  1. Great music and shots, just got a bit bored with the top case installation. Travelling has a lot of neccessary and tiring stuff attached to it, that is why I sometimes watch instead of travel myself. So I look for the most relaxing, pleasant, entertaining videos. But prefer those who still keep it real and educational if possible. Please make those, thank you so much!

  2. that much height/weight over the rear tire has gotta be like riding with a passenger, [except the case leans with you, something it takes humans a while to figure out]. while necessary, and great looking/functioning rig, as with everything, there's always a trade off…
    stay safe, my friend…

  3. This one has SUBTITLES for the Portuguese bits!

    Check out the playlist with all the South America episodes so far

  4. I would strongly recommend using the rubber corner straps on your RAM mount phone holder. I love mine. While in Italy last November I was riding from Como to Milan. I put my phone in a plastic bag because it was raining pretty hard. Didn't fool with the corner straps because I was in a hurry. I suspect the rain, the plastic bag, plus the phone not being secured properly caused it to come out of the holder, bounce on my knee and was gone at 80 mph. Bad enough to lose the phone, but it was my primary navigation unit. I have a usb cable direct to battery so the phone is charged at all times. Bluetooth into the helmet with directions and music. Heading to Brasil next October for a 30 day solo tour. Thanks for posting.

  5. Over first few seconds I discerned case's outer finish as an old flaking paint haha, but there's huge chunk of art to it!

  6. I have a similar sized 58 litre aluminium top box it also comes in handy as a seat. I just remove it, place it down on its side and take a seat.

    Mine was second hand so one side was already scuffed and scratched so I put that side on the floor when I use it as a seat.
