I'm still waiting to see Billy's latest setup with 6" HID and the Onyx light bar underneath. That may be the ticket for size, distance and fill.
Gotcha, I'm with ya on HID for the truly hi-speed (keeping Spencers tailight within site) type of rips. I am really sold on the latest LED stuff for most other catagories.

Or maybe, subconsciously, I'm just trying to justify my substantial expenditures?

Who knows, misery does love company.

Really? You want to get this started again? Might as well get our friends south of us to shed (excuse the pun) some light on this question...........

gents, i just wanted to throw it out there that i dont think i'll be keeping the tiger, great bike but the wife has been on it a few times and she doesnt feel comfy at speed, or the cars around us on the road. looks like she doesnt want to do the two up thing so i might as well go back to a solo bike.

i will most likely put it up for sale soon and wanted to give the locals the first crack. i'm thinkin 3k for an easy sale and i'm thinkin i want to get back on a 640A.

thanks

Do we have any current or aspiring cabinet makers in our midst? I have a couple of projects that I don't have the time or tools for.

Try

If you found no love at GOAZ then try Helmet center, they will order and have them within 36 hrs

Nate Richmond at 18635 N 35th Ave #106 623-444-4789, He's really tough to deal with He'll match any advertised price, all

you need is to prove you can beat his price & he'll fold like a cheap cardboard box, really tough to deal with.

Seriously one of the best guys you'll ever do business with. He will go the extra mile to get you set up.

I like em em, I like em alot

Yeah, GOAZ said they don't carry them in stock anymore. I orderd a pair from revzilla but just sent them back because they were too big. I was hoping to just try a pair on locally but doesn't look like that's possible. I'll just reorder the right size from Revzilla. THX!
