orange crash bars on safari tank

Sunday I installed my modified crash bars made to fit the safari tank.
My wife gave me a gift certificate for the orange powder coat at Christmas and just got around to getting them re-welded to fit.
They do look nice next to the big black tank. I threw some decals on the tank earlier just to break up the blackness.
The tanks are nice for long distances and not riding from gas station to gas station. They do like to grow. Right now I am having trouble getting the front mounting bolt lined up by the head light, but no worries I got four other bolts attaching it.
The safari tank is tough and question the need for the crash bars but I removed the tank skid guards and after all it was a Christmas present and it does look nice.

Took her out in Texas.



And yeah, I know: wrong tires and all that. But this was a shakedown run and a few things did shake off.

Found the missing link to get the bike back together:



Now a few parts are a paint but as soon as I get them back there is a matter of an hour or 2 before its ready for another season!

Which HID kit and headlight housing is this? I just install the Rigid LED fogs on mine and want to convert the headlight to HID. Looks great!

Doubletake mirrors, new Wolfman tank bag, added extra power tap in glove box.
