Bolt on trunks that look like UFO's...
For a sport tourer, I think any trunk is a bad idea. Places weight high and behind the rear axle, unweighting the front wheel and screwing with aerodynamics.

To stir the pot a bit, floorboards and a heel-toe shifter.

Car tire . . .  :popcorn:

I miss that thread...

Hey, being seen is a huge part of being on a sport tourer.  People behind me definitely notice the running lights on my trunk, which kindly point them to either side of me...

Plus, it has a spoiler too.  Sport vehicles almost always look better with spoilers!
