Finally figured how to get this posted. What this does not show is the new Palmer adjustable windshield mount I installed today. I will get some shots of that and post it as well;

HarleyToo, the Roadie looks fabulous. Nice job. Which crash bars are you using and are you happy with the panniers? You've done a great job of giving the Roadie a shot of Testosterone!

The bars are SW-Motec. She has a bashplate that is not as visible from a guy out of the UK, the Pensky racing shock really made her handle, I have the new Palmer windshield adjuster (just put that on today). I will post some additional pictures.

The TRAX boxes are killer. I have a 47 liter on the left side and a 35 liter on the right (due to the exhaust). That balances the bike and works great. I am able to get a full size backback in the 47 liter box. I dropped it once on them and it did no damage at all. I have their quick disconnect system and can remove boxes in a minute and the entire rack system in another minute or two. Best investment I ever made.

I use this bike most days to commute, but I tour on it as well (when I am not on the Harley).

I'm really encouraged HarleyToo. I didn't think you could get a bash plate for that bike. Is he selling them or was it custom? Which tires are you running?

He was selling them some months ago. I can see about getting you in touch with him if you would like.

I am running Dunlop 616's

I think we scared the final drive out of it. But that is what we get for taking a BMW with us.

Gotta keep those bearings perfect or that final drive is problematic.

Chains may be a pain in the butt, but you can fix them just about anywhere!

And get parts anywhere, and not need a torque wrench and oddball tools to fix. I'll take a greasy chain any day.

Tiger 1050

Nice Mods Harleytoo. I also have a 1050 that I'd like to put a bash plate on and some tires I could do dirt roads & fire trails on. How do you like the 616's? Are they as good as the stock tires in the street and have you taken the Tiger off road with these tires on?

Thanks,
Devon
