Yeh, I'm thinkin that may very well be right... Didn't she have a VN750 decked out about the same as that bike, and also log some awful lot of miles on trips across the U.S. ...

She has a pic with the bike loaded down with milk crate and bungies.
She also has a side car for it.

There is a Texas lady school teacher with a vn750 who toured with her husband riding another older bike and posted a link to their blog here a couple of years ago. The rear splines went out on her about 3 days before they got home. Her nickname escapes me at the moment. I don`t remember if she posted any pics of her bike loaded up or not.

Edit: I think it was ladybiker 706. Any of these pics look familiar Old Dog?

OHC, I really don't think that is the one, I think it may have been Diana, not sure...
It did have quite a bit of electronics on it also, just not sure...
Thanks, and have a good one...Old Dog...

Yeah Ceal, that's what I sayin, I think someone (a lady also) that was on here used to have a VN750 rigged up something like that and did a whole bunch of miles across the U.S., touring or whatever... May have been Diana...???
I can't remember who, CRS I think...lol...
To answer your question to the best of my knowledge, I don't have a clue...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
