Here's the immediate parts list, anyone have opinions?
Engine bash guard- black dog
Side guards-?
Handlebar risers 2"-?
Front tire-Mefo Explorer or Continental TKC-80
Rear tire-Mefo Explorer
Exhaust-Wings
Wide foot pegs-?
High fender-?

I will be doing a lot of off road but when it comes to tires, i still need to be able to lean on the asphalt like i could on other bikes and shave the panniers!
Thanks fellas.

That's pretty bad ass. I'm a fan of anything with a hint of a bomber theme.

I pick it up in 2 very long weeks. Haha. Based on what I can tell, the Motech stuff is readily available. That is what I initially was planning to use but they were cheap compared to other companies so wasn't sure about quality. Thoughts? Also the Rox pivot risers. Anyone use them and have issues with them moving at inopportune times? I have a dirt bike and downhill mountain bike background so I will be an aggressive rider and want equipment that will hold up with no surprises!!
Thanks for the input.

I have the Motech adjustable footpegs on my 990R and they are very good quality and functional. Also have the Motech skidplate which is lightweight and just replaced it with a Tourtech plate which is much sturdier. If interested in the skidplate send me a personal message and we will work it out. Good luck with the new ride!

That's great to hear. Are you fairly aggressive?

Thanks man. LOVE your bike. My bobber I built back in'01 (which I still have) is all matte black with header tape and apes. Matte black looks so apocalyptic.

Another vote for the Rox Risers. I was able to move them but only by tangling with a Big Rig. I have the CJRacer medium peg extensions and LOVE EM.

They didn't move when I dug the end of the bar in the ice/mud at 30 mph or so a coupla weeks ago....and, frankly, at that point I might actually prefer that they did, since it may protect the bars a little.
