What full exhaust is that Rick, and it appears also works with OEM centerstand? Beauty of a bike by the way, 3rd new to you Strom in last year? No spoke wheels, were they swapped out?

Thanks Big B. In did it is the best and the most farkled V Strom I've ever had. (and that's #10). You're right. My #3 Wee2 since December 2015. To answer your question - the exhaust is 3/4 Akrapovic. No interference with stock center stand at all. Ok with Givi luggage racks too. It was touching the cross bar of SW Motech side racks tough. Since it's 2013 it never had spoke wheels. Personally I like the look of them but don't want to clean them up and maintain them. To bad tough I have not had enough time to swap silver wheels from my previous bike...

I have happy-trails aluminum panniers and racks.
Got the panniers very cheap second hand from a friend. This week I set myself up an upgrade to them. I added the option of a rifle case holder.

This is very functional and doesn't look bad at all, but also quite funny to see a cheap-ass top box and hellishly expensive Traxx Panniers together on same bike.

I bought the bike used with the Trax boxes included. I refuse to pay several hundred dollars for a top box when I can find a bigger, better one for $30 at the local REI.

FWIW, I no longer have the Rubbermaid mounted. Found no need for it in my 50+ nights of moto camping last summer. Glad I didn't find that out and have a $400 top case sitting unused in my garage......
