How are those mirrors working for you?
I have a set and I'm not very happy with them. On the road they are not to bad, Off Road they are always moving around. I'm not happy, and I can't screw them back out.

We rarely see snow here in South Africa, but on the hp2, riding in winter with the lack of a screen, I tend to get really cold, really fast.

You can get a low seat or have the standard modified. Also some drop frontr forks and adjust back shock down or have aftermarket shock fitted.

got mine lowered.. I am 5.6'

Basically new Wilbers rear shock, drop forks through the triple clamp.

Lowered mine by 80mm which is a bit too much, Now I wish I only lowered by 50mm.

I'd say you would want around 40mm lowered sock and an equal adjustment in the forks.

I initially bought a lower seat which reduces the hight by an inch but the seat was too hard and uncomfortable for longer rides.

hope this helps.

Hi Ron

I love the mirrors to be fair they do move sometimes when off road but not that much
Great when I drop the bike

Hi Chris

The side bags are Kriega US 20s and top bag is an Ortlieb dry bag

Racks started off as Holan pannier frames

I added a rack and extra fitting for extra strength + tool/spares boxes
