waiting on new panels for ChiTown for the tank and then paint... HP2 tank bag fits really well... instead of the bungie cord I'm going to make a strap underneath the tank hidden outta the way... more clean look.... but you gotta admit... the orange bungie cord is a nice touch...

uncle's bike gets windscreen, handgaurds (mine... , hopefully going HDB for me) then radiator guards and other misc. shiney things!

P.S. - happy easter... he is risen

I do.... used my cycle hill changer today actually... mitas on the rear and metzler 6-day front... front was something I had laying around brand new? lol rear is from my uncles... opted out of getting the big block cause if I wanna patch a tube in the middle of nowhere I wanna be able to spoon the tire off... the mitas is a tire I can almost do by hand!

holler when you wanna change tires

tip over was actually me laying the bike down (nice and easy!) to drag it outta a rut I made... lol knobbies can collect mud!
