Talking Simply FABuLUST

Kicks following your wanderlust build Kubiak. Thanks for keeping the forum posted

I have been trying to read back through these many threads where your bike's progress was featured, in this case when the paint came of the lower frame rails. Wasn't it when you moved your side stand? Is that why you still us the lower rails, at least on the left side? Pardon again my asking, if this an old topic more than covered elsewhere, but I couldn't find my way back to the rail work and why. I've seen some 650's go without these lower rails, after relocating the only items they seem to serve: side stand, regulator, and stock bash plate. Now the new Husqvarna looks to be doing away with them as well. What's your take on removing these and any plans to follow suit, finding much needed ground clearance.
