Thanks Dean for the pictures of the Strada. Talked to the wife no check writing for me dang it, but she's cool with me selling the GS(she only rode 50 miles with me last year) . It will take a little time but its coming to my house. What kind of miles do you lucky owners have on your bikes now?

Quality work right there. I wish I had a garage so I could tinker a bit more. As it stands I can see a lot of paychecks going towards the betterment of this bike.

Turn signals installed


When the paint is completely dry I'll slap the bags on.
This thing is stout enough to be a roll cage for the rear.

Interesting....RE. Looks Quite nice. Go out and ride in some mud, then have someone take a photo of your backside. I want to know if there's still enough fender coverage to keep the slop from slinging up your spine.

AND post a photo of the top mount for your bag support bracket (behind the seat).....pleeeease!

Right now this is the best pic i have.
I used round slices from an old jack handle to make the spacers.
They fit under the factory rack with longer bolts.


Anyone recognize the metal chunk on the left?


That's the boat anchor license plate holder flipped upside down, trimmed and the reflector tabs removed.

I wondered about the fender coverage too. I'm willing to sacrifice that aspect for a concise rear end.
Luckily i live in the desert. It only rains once a year.
