got a few quick questions:
is it possible to get the downshifter for the "normal" dragster?
i also use it to got to work, i do 12h shifts so i need to pack some food and drinks, thinking about a quick lock system, anybody already fix it? which size, does it effect the driving when for example a bottle of water goes from left to right when taking turns?
what kinda helmets do you all were for a naked beast like this? i know the fit is import but just curious.

Hey another former Moto Morini colleague, from the dutch Motor Forum right?

Downshifts are in theory possible but it requires a different loom, different sensor and a bit of software. Currently no easy way to do this and therefore not plausible.

Mucho fun with the Bragster

Hi fabrizio, I'm Rui. New here too, same bike as yours.

I use a my backpack carrying my lunch, not a big deal. I guess you won't carry something like soup or hot coffee in your backpack, right?

Hey Bragster! Just like you and Rui, I am also new here, and have the same bike as yours, only I'm in Costa Rica.
I also ride my bike to work, and this is what I use to carry my notebook, lunch and rain gear:
http://www.revzilla.com/product/nels...dable-roll-bag
Not much space, so I need to pack it really tight. It does move just a little side to side when not fully packed, but I just tighten the straps to fit.

I know a few others here are using these, which look nice, and seem to do a better job at keeping the cargo still, and dry

I'll give the Kriega a try if the roll bag craps out, but for now, it gets the job done nicely.

Welcome all,

I use this to carry all my gear to work. I can fit my laptop a pair of football boots, kit and towel in here comfortably:

Anybody use these on a jacket with a speed hump on the back? Any issues?

thx everybody for the response
@lascap inderdaad moto fabini he :-)
@torchsport: i have a backpack and the speed hump, no problem with that BUT the reason i was asking for a quick lock system is that on my shoulders the leather gets a bit damaged by my backpak.
