Okay dudes. Cowboy up.. Who rode this morning?

It was 9F this morning at home when I left. I was on the fence about riding.. But made it finally about 30 minutes longer than usual. It was so cold after the first 30 miles I had to reduce speed to 45 just to survive!

Hope you guys are having fun. Home today but spent a few hours installing my new tank. Unfortunately the tank and the windshield brackets want to occupy the same space. Need a mig welder or a completely different mount to make my windshield work again.

Red and white lookin good Firestone!

How much does it hold? Can you post a pic of the bracket conflict?
We had to ride without you but you get to tell us how quiet the weekdays are.
Draper was great today. My brother brought the LC4 out, Mental3dge was kind to slow down on it enough for me to eat his dust so's I wouldn't get lost!
Sweet place to ride!
I am busy tomorrow so someone else needs to go out and have all n the fun.

Thanks! It holds 5.8 gallons which is over 3 gallons more than the stock tank.

Here is the bracket conflict:







and here is the graphics I chose. Ended up putting the wings on the side panels instead of the tank.

In a word, Great! Rear tire felt like it was in constant contact with the ground no matter how rough the terrain. After riding it for quite a while, I realized I wasn't thinking about how the bike was going to handle a hard hit or a section of whoops because it was, as they say, soaking up the hits! Really pleased with the set up and the bike as a whole now. Next up, Rekluse!
