Nice pics. Makes my weekend ride seem a tad lame. There's always next weekend though.

Looks like you also cut fuel tank removal time down to about 5 minutes!

I like it!

Hey, what is that behind the bike? Racing mower? Midget racer? Looks like a fun toy whatever it is.

Well sold my 99 tiger and picked this up. What a great ride and the power of the K1 is a lot of fun. It's a 04 with 23,000 miles, Corbin seat, pelican cases, madstad w/Givi wind screen, crash bars and bash plate. Just got back from a quick 500 mile weekend to the north side of the Grand Canyon. Now ready to head of to Death Valley for a few days.

What a good Choice!!!
How do you find the Pelican cases?
Am researching them and would like to know how you find the side loading? Or do you take em off each time you access them?

I'll get a better pic of the bike. The mower is just a Craftsman rider with my Dad's old racing numbers and some stickers. The rider has a locked diff which=burnouts!

Got 'em on Ebay, shipped direct from China in a surprisingly short time. They also came with bar mounts and waterproof electrical connectors.
