Here's a few shots of my MT-09 Tracer at the East Midlands Aero park.

Looking good mate! I do like them in that colour :-) Other then the bags is there any other mods or extras on the bike?

The Oxford pannier bags are temporary. I'm awaiting delivery of the pannier bars for the Givi Trekker Dolomiti panniers and I'm also having a top box mount for a Givi Trekker Outback box. I also had the Yamaha heated grips added, as I'd had them on the MT-07 as well and they do seem to help keep the cramps away.

I was thinking of having red again, as my YBR125 and the MT-07 Tracer were both red, but I was told that red wasn't an option on this years version.

I ust had a look and the tyres are Dunlop Sportmax D222F types.

The heated grips are great. I like the feature of being able to adjust the heat settings to suit. I think I will be swapping the tyres for some Road Pilot 4s when it comes to it (if they're available in the correct size)......

I've got the topbox on now, but CMC fitted the wrong type of pannier rails!

This after I warned several people that there were two types and I needed the ones where you twist two 'keys' to lock the panniers on.

The ongoing saga of the pannier bars is still, well, ongoing...

Apparently, the brackets that the panniers lock into comes with the panniers, not the brackets. So they will have to be ordered separately. Had I realised this, I would have taken them off the MT-07 before it was taken away.

Pannier saga got sorted, Givi provided replacement locking brackets.

I've added a Givi screen as well and got the suspension sorted. Nearly 8,000 miles done on it now.

Images have stopped working and the imageshack site says my trial membership has ended, so I've lost the links to my bike pictures and can't upload any new ones.

That's not ideal mate :-( Will sit down this week and make a new/updated guide to posting images when I get a bit of time
