Default Doing a tour of Western Europe on my '95 Kat 750 next week. UK to Poland

No particular reason for posting although any advice appreciated. Got myself a 50L topbox and I'm hoping a blackbird luggage rack will fit. Sizings seem pretty similar. If not it's going to be some cheap bags. Only bought the bike a couple of weeks ago, done around 600 miles on her, half of that in one evening as a warm up.

Going to try and bolt a phone holder onto the fairing and wrap my weird-sized phone in a sandwich bag for satnav. If it doesn't work I'll just bluetooth audio directions or try and follow road signs like some kind of animal. Battery on phone is decent but going to mount a 12000Mah battery under the seat and pull a cable through to the phone mount if it will fit.

If none of this works I'm going anyway wish me luck
