I'm back

Hey everyone, I'm back. Not moderating anymore, and still bike shopping, but thought I would get a headstart on catching up on here.

couple questions: What kind of bike do you have? Do you have a means of mounting locking sidecases or a topbox?

hate to say it, but I agree with Flesher; the bike will have been stripped by now. Check ebay and other online auction/sale sites - you mind find some of the parts listed.
