Clockworks tank
new gearing
HDB handguards
HDB powerlet mount
Michelin AC10 tires
Forks freshened up by SuspensionDR in Onalaska, WA

A few picts of the bike. Ride starts May 7.

The cockpit

Had to make some straps to hold the fuel bottle holster on the Enduro Tool Bag

The fender bag makes the bike steer heavy. Kind of different but not terrible. Would not want to ride with all this stuff on all the time.

How will you strap the TV/monitor onto the bike and where will you put it? Will you wire it in to your GPS so you can achieve a larger font size? Probably not on the front fender, as that would make the steering even heavier... perhaps to the tank bag?

Sorry; couldn't resist. I am a smartass at heart. Sounds like a great trip. Enjoy and post some pics!

But change is...
