Any chance, someone wants to model their highway pegs in use? Curious to see the difference.

Anybody know of new pegs that lower the current height by around an inch?

Talking Christmas in September

The unboxing of a Holan 45L Top case, gray, and Wolfman Rocky Mountain Saddlebags from ADVMotorrad!






(sorry, that one kinda sucked)








GT-Air





First impressions: F'IN SWEET!!!!

Case is super solid, top knotch build. Smooth, sturdy latches and hinges. No play at all. Fits a helmet and jacket stuffed in with extras. Love the tie downs! Double rubber seal on the bottom and lid.

Bags are very, very nice. Well made and lined with slippery plastic all around to get things in and out fast. I bag and tag everything anyway.

Install is tonight Working on my rev 2 of mounting plate.

Haha, that's wild, local concord grape jam my friend! Best I've ever had. Good crop this year, as we yielded around 22lbs of Jam! I had to run to KMart and buy more jars. Last year was around 10lbs. We've already gifted away 8 of the smaller jars. The wife and I made it 3 weeks ago. I pick them and process them and she cooks and cans them. Takes a solid day to do it... but it's worth it.

Cruise Control...

So, is the Kaoko setup the defacto cruise control option? Anyone have something else they prefer?

Tried that. Took it off when I got home. Got in the way of braking. Couldn't hold onto bar and squeeze the brake without it revving...

My buddy had one on his GS for our coast ride and convinced me to try it. I've never bothered with any kind of throttle lock or anything over all these miles. But distance riding I do find my hand gets tired.

I was blown away how much that little tab took all the effort out of keeping it throttled up. You can release your grip for a more relaxed hiway ride. I didn't think I was going to like it but surprised me big time.

I'm glad this came up...had forgotten to order one...now I'll be ready for the next trip.
