New Pics from last ride

Took the bike out with the new lighter front end. Felt great.

Nice.

What kind of crash bars are those?
I like them better than the ones my Wife has on her bike now.

Thanks,

Everybody loves my crash bars!...
They were custom made by a local exhaust pipes builder...
There are some other guys asking for them... I think I must start building some...
I've been asked for detailed pics, but I always forget about them... I will start a thread soon...

They are nice, kinda like my Hepco Beckers on my 950ADV.

The Blue Ridge Parkway ride showed me that the small pelican panniers just didn't make it for a week-long trip. I really didn't like having to stack up a couple dry bags on the rear seat area. I picked up the bight yellow Pelican 1550 cases for a decent price from an online dive shop. The black cases also got pretty hot inside so the yellow ones should be cooler.







They look pretty wide but they're only about 2 inches wider than my old ones. I'd like to thank corrado113 for making up a set of pannier bags for me in matching bright yellow, of course.

Parx, you bike looks mean. What rear shock are you running and have you had someone tune your suspension?

Fork seal replacement time.










Two hours later it's back to new.
