managed to find some time to mount the bar risers at last. whoa .. what a world of difference it makes to the feel & handling of my bike.

removed the handlebars and lower mounts


put on the bar risers with the extra looooong bolts


mounted the bars, rotated the throttle yoke downwards. no problems with the cable lengths or anything.

20. The strap arrangement is a bit fiddly though - or I am still missing a trick.
You have to take the buckles & clips off to thread the straps through the slots in the rack.... but then if you want to take the bag off, you cant leave the straps on the bike because they dont clip (male-to-male) .

Of course it won't fit male to male , it's not a fag/bag ..... but other than the "mounting" issue it fits and rides well in more technical terrain ? No chaffing or excessive wear after hard rides ?

Talking Mooky Moo!

I think you owe it to us to post a picture of you on the bike.

I think I speak for us all when I say we want to see the ADV looking like a CG125!

my mom who is 5'2" ish gasped in disbelief when she saw my 990S for the first time and her only remark was "i can't even look at myself in the mirrors on this stupid bike" . To imagine & see that somebody can make this kinda bike look like a CG125 - priceless

I went one day to visit a girlfirend, she wasn't home and I told her aunt to let her know.
When the gf asked her aunt if it was the guy with a bike, she said,"this was no bike, it was a damn house"

At that time I had a Honda XLM 600 with a 36" saddle height.

There was a ride report titled " 2 -4 Jan 2009 QLD OZ" with a photo of a giant on a950 SE, same outfit (KTM Evo jacket) and same general looks.
That one's name is Ardie, maybe it's him, anyway there is a photo there of that guy slightly under 7' tall on a 950SE, it just looked like a 125.
