Yes, my heel rubs it. Not sure it bothers me, but I do rub it while riding.

I have a guard from SW Motech that stops that, you get them as a pair for each side, about $70.

On another note, I took my foot off the pedal to take a left turn yesterday my left toe hit the road and dug in a little and pushed my heel back into the FD momentarily, scared me a little. Potential for disaster there, lol.

Thanks, but I don't think so. YMMV of course.

What size is that Kreiga Bag? I am guessing the US 20 dry bag. I like this setup for extended rides.

Busy week of bolting things on:

Touratech bags:



Inmate Twin Headlight Ernie of Dakota Motorsports made me a Fat Foot and a bash plate for the center stand. Main bash plate will be fabbed up later. He used my bike for a template for the foot and center stand bash plate and he'd be happy to make them for you too.

Bash Plate:







Fat foot:







BTW, the center stand was already rusting after only 3500 miles

So, this weekend I took the LC up to the Ardennes for some twisted riding. Going out of of a small village I rode through a pothole I didn't see, at 40mph.
Result : a dented cast front wheel . Just big enough so it loses about 100gram of air over 24hours.
Have the wheel at the repair shop right now to straighten it out again. Hopefully this works

We worked out a deal on my parts as they were prototypes. I don't know if he's set pricing for the 2013 parts yet, but he usually much less expensive than the big competition. Send him a PM.

Well I looked - but I guess I don't know where to look to find the size - any idea?
