it's an acerbis 6 gallon tank. bit of a pain it the shorts sometimes but you can ride forever. when it was new i could not turn lock to lock with the bars. to fix that i used a heat gun to warm up the plastic and reshape it a little where the triple tree clamps were hitting. now i am putting the corbin on and it won't just bolt up with that super tanker on there. just little crap like that. i think it looks way groovey though.

heres a couple pics of the windshield i use.





ebay fork brace. stiffens up the front end quite a bit.

I mounted my gps by using the right side mirror post. Popped the mirror off the mount bent it to lean into the middle, drilled it and bolted a aluminum bracket for the gps to it, it fits in a cell phone case that is bolted to the bracket. Ill see if I got a pic. Thats the prototype model and thats the second attemp at the windshield. It got scrapped. The purple thing you see is my key extention.

I'M HERE! Here is a road trip I did for 31 days starting Nov 21 '05. I was on the way to the artic circle and alaska, but got this picture in wyoming. I did not ride as much as planned, only in AZ and NM but it was a great time. This year, looking to head up to NE Canada and beyond. Going to drag it up in the pick up though...

onaxr, i never thought of using the mirror mount for a gps, i may look into that, looks like it would work good. i missed a sweet touratech mount on ebay today. you'd about have to move the key switch to make one of those work anyway.

how are the heated grips. worth it? and what the hell is that pedometer lookin thing? maybe you said and i missed it, to lazy to read all the posts again.

heres a few more pics. i am turning into a picture whore here. let me know if i get carried away.

i'll have to dig and see if i have any info on the fork brace. makes a huge difference in the feel of the front end. i bought it for eighty bucks on ebay a couple years ago.

the bags are a cheap set of chase harpers i had on an old shovelhead. that old shovelhead had apehangers on it and thats where i discovered that filling bars with silicone caulk and bb's kills vibration. pain to do but awesome effect. i'll get ya some better pics of the bags tomorrow or next day and post 'em on here. i also stiched up a lunch bag thingy that works well as a tank bag. i'm thinking about buying a new tank bag but not sure how they will fit with the super tanker. we'll see, i gotta find something to do while the old lady and kids watch the x-games.

oh yea, the bag on front is a north face fanny pack for hiking. wraps around my spitfire windshield and secures the bottom of it pretty well, if it rains everything in it is screwed, just keep things in it that can get wet and flat from the wind.

That thing is a bicycle computer mph, 2 trip meters, temp, time, and service monitor.
Heated grips I would pay 3 times the cost for them (dont tell anybody)!
I ride all year and they help alot. Just wire them into a keyed powerpoint, Dont ask).
