I do Alot of commuting with mine with full gear on. I keep another pair of shoes at work.
I use to put a book bag on to carry my essentials until I found this aluminum luggage plate thing. I bought a spare passenger seat and bolted that puppy down to it. Now I bungee the book bag to that. My pc is the 17 in, big battery Dell, lunch, books, paper, etc, that thing weighs a ton!
My bike is posted in the what have you done for your rr today section, it's red with the orange rims. You can make out the rack bolted to the seat?
