Here's mine....



Sorry, a bit bland and an uninteresting picture, but all the marts, pipes, tanks etc., are here, and just waiting for the seat now, before we go travelling....

Nice H&B Bars, but why white and not blue or silver or black?

H & B Bars.....

Hi Jim,

I am trying to lighten the whole look of the bike.I'll br changing all grey parts, tank etc., to white, so I thought I'd start with the bars. They were originally black...

Isn't it amazing what 'roads' the GPS knows about?

Aerostich standard tank panniers

It's nice to get an accessory, install it and go riding within ten minutes......these things fit the HP2 perfectly AND they're made in the USA! S.Viking recommended them and it solves the range problem with the HP2....I got 52mpg on the last tank (broken in, street tires, Puig) with mixed use so I'm certain the bike's good for 160 miles......add a gallon in one of the panniers and 200 mile range is in the bag......another problem solved.

ymmv, but, i have a set of the competition-sized version of these that i've used for years, and they were one of the first things i tried on my new HP2.

unfortunately, they partially cover the exit duct for hot air coming from the oil cooler.

with darien pants, on an average temp day, this cooked my left thigh in less than an hour. the only solution was to stick the leg out in the fresh airflow.

now that i have the HPN tank, this is no longer an issue, but with the panniers, a wide tank gets even wider...

too bad, because i love tank panniers.

It was a cold day when I tried the panniers yesterday but I did notice a concentration of heat on the left knee......a good excuse to make a small deflector.......hmmmmmm......Bruce

By my calculations that little square of the parking lot costs almost as much as my house.
