Thats why I do not deflate when going gravel, the softer the tyre, the more the happy faces on the rims!! Keep it at 2.2bar!

Just about there. Rick's fork brace. Handlebar riser. Givi topcase. Enduro Guardian skid plate. Awaiting low profile Givi hard bags for every day use. The Trax will be for more extended touring.

This mishap gave me the excuse to 'upgrade' to Buell turn signals.

Everyone's been telling me to do this for years



Now that I have a GPS it is becoming hard to do.

Sorry about the Connie in the middle!

I think the crash bars make the Vee(or Wee) look a lot better. If mine hadn't come all farkled I would have bought crash stuff first to.

Yea I broke two within as many weeks. Second time I changed to Buell turn signals. A lot more flexable and less likely to break in a fall or lowside.

If someone is after a set of fairings same as above let me know.
Interesting setup, I like it although I would not have been able to guess the original bike. I think the back panel needs a little attention and it would look ready for production!!!

Thanks!
