Their luggage is not designed for a close fit. The boxes are universal so they have to be mounted on very wide racks to clear the bike. For a few hundred more dollars, one can buy a set of premium luggage that fits tight to the bike, has much stronger design & construction and has more capacity too.

parts availability

Shawn - saw the video and am inspired. Rode one of these the other day and I am impressed enough to start thinking seriously about one of these bikes. But I am looking at the costs of farkling this bike....

There were parts shown in the video that don't appear on your site.
Is the protector for the shaft drive available?
I am also confused by the lights. The names shown on your graph of lighting distances don't match up with the products shown on your site? Is the DX available or is that a product you guys are still developing?

Didn't know that, good info. IMO I don't like the Jesse boxes aesthetically.

The parts that were shown in the video will be available eventually. I had around 4 weeks to get the bike stripped down, painted and built. While doing this Nate our designer was doing some prototyping on the bike where we saw some need of improvement. As soon as these are available for the market, they will be on our website. I took the 1200 out a few weeks before we got ours and I love it!

Thank You

To go a step further I can tell you that of the bike-specific gear currently on our site for the Explorer we have everything except the R&G Bar End Sliders in-stock and ready to go.

The drive shaft protector and the above-dash RAM ball is still in development. There were several items that are "universal fit" items that may not appear on the bike-specific section of the site but are available if you hunt around. If you need help finding anything give us a call 855-255-5550.

He is looking at one hard. It might come to pass that he does get one. Did he put you up to that? It wouldn't surprise me.

Thumb mud & extended license flaps

+1 on the rear mud flap and also an extender for the license plate to keep mud/rain water from coming up the back of the bike. Your thoughts?

Also, some way to secure that stupid cross-over front brake line. To keep it from grabbing the front tire if the fender comes off. Believe it or not its happened to a F800 GS. Guy went down at 50mph when the front tire locked up.
A shifter with a pivoting head helps on tip overs.

I'm pretty sure in this thread we should probably say Twisted Throttle... http://www.twistedthrottle.com/

Seriously, they really are great people to deal with. Premium products at honest prices. ( Yes, that does mean kinda expensive, but worth it...)
