All tuned up, the motorcycle and the guitar are, ready for the road. I built a "Guitar Holster" out of camping equip and securely fastened it to the luggage rack. The entire "Holster" weighs less than 10lbs. With Guitar and case = 25 lbs, max. I've made a couple of test rides with out the guitar and one with. So far so good. All set for my S.E. Tour in Al/Fla in a couple of weeks.
