France and Italy.
Two weeks solo, one week with my younger brother who I'll meet somewhere in the Cévennes.

...and in an old iron; that is important. Couple of weeks ago I put some long km in one of my Triumph too.
Can you share some photos showing the way you fit those bags? I mean behind the seat. The 79 carrier have too much angle to have the panniers in that position.

Thanks

Back home after 5623 km.
Perfect trip.
Bike was100% reliable.
Not a trace of oil on the engine.
Seat foam is somewhat compressed, but that will recover in a few days.
I'll post some pics later..

A few pics, but little comment, 'cause I already posted a trip report on Accessnorton.
I went first to Italy trough France for 2wks, then back to France to meet 2 of my brothers.
After a few days of touring together, my older brother continued south, while my younger brother and me turned north.
