Do you have a picture without the gear on it?

these are the things i do when i'm home sick with the flu...

Twisted Throttle light mounts

I've had a couple of questions about the mounts for my lights. So hopefully this will help.

The lights are from twisted throttle
http://www.twistedthrottle.com/denal...-and-m10-mount

You can choose the style of mount from the table. I used the 6mm fender mount and mounted them to the upper fairing bolt instead of the fender.

Here is a close up of the mount.

Just took it for a ride and it was nice. Sound is deep an throaty. Won't be able to tell performance until I put a couple hundred miles on it.

Went for a snow ride!

Keeping this thing rubber side down in the snow is an excersize in self control!

We only did a short loop of the town, the looks were priceless!

Pelican cases

Getting sooooo close on finishing my 1550 side cases. I just have to build the mounts, and they'll be done.
