So what do you guys think, should I go with the black coloured bars or those unpainted ones?

Opinions?
Photos?

Thanks!

If it wasn't for bottom bolt of rear shock that was rusted into sleeve through linkage i'd have to say i wasted my time...but now i know it's a happy bike

Nice pics of your bike !! Spacetraveller ... looks like the dramatic mode on an Olympus cam. How are you liking the tourtech Pans.? specifically the side cases not too wide ?

will do as soon as they come in. Got a shipping notice but no tracking number. Hope my package doesn't get trampled in one of the riots. That seller has really good feedback, so I am hopeful they are nice.

will post lots of pics when I get them.

I am going to get a reflash instead of Altrider Crashbars because Pluric says it should be the first thing you get. Hes alright and i fill has his shit together.....

So I will ride on road with performance and butt pucker off-road. I have already dislocated my shoulder trying to keep the bike from hitting the off-road ground sections. so i dont damage any upper area.
So according to the majority the flash is better then protection.

Wow.

Told my wife it should be a cheap bike and do all i need with no upgrades....

shes pissed as I lied... not knowingly.

so much so little $$ on my side.

oh well best bike ever and sooo glad I didnt buy the 1190 R.

Some of you may remember these ridiculously over-engineered crash bars I made 3 years ago, up before anyone else manufactured any... ?



Well, this week they earned their certification.
On entry over a rainy mountain pass into Argentina, I lost the back end on a strip of over rich (in bitumen) tarmac at around 30mph.

This is the resulting damage...


Scratched Crash bars.


Front Left footpeg.


Rear Left footpeg.

All in all I was pretty chuffed. We both only suffered minor bruises and both got back on the bike to finish the days journey. Karen is a tough cookie.
