Taking the centre stand off would be like loosing me right nut!!!

I love the bars, they look so tough on the bike. I just put back on my old Givi's though to mount a skidplate. If you're interested, PM me. I can make a really good deal on mine. No longer need them.

I like the Givi crash bars on mine(mostly because the bike came with them) but the Touratech ones look good to.
Thinking about trading my 06 Vee for a Uly, any thoughts??

Why? You got a honking hard-on for an air-cooled, leaky, push-rod H-D engine?

Yea I guess I'm a sucker for those. I have had two and like the way they ride. I like my Vee to, but whatever bike I get I keep looking at Uly's again.


You got this via Crapatalk
