My last bike before my Uly

Sorry for swearing.

I got knocked off it by a car a year and a half ago,it was written off,just like my left heel!


Thought I'd post it as it was one of several old photos I was scanning.

I haven't had it out on the highway since I got the new fender, but I've had it up to about 60 or so and yesterday was riding in some pretty high winds and it felt fine. The front end on these bikes are so heavy, especially with a full tank of fuel - I didn't expect to feel much difference.

You may ask Stretch the same question - he's been riding with his longer than I have.

OH and in answer to your earlier question regarding my panniers - they are the 10.5" ones. I wanted maximum storage capacity. I also just upgraded my tail pack (The Wolfman is for sale if anyone is interested) to a Nelson-Riggs sport tailpack. I liked the shape/design of the NR one better and it holds more. I'll try to get a pic up later today.

Thanks for the info.My panniers are the 9.5 with the canyon cut and powdered coated black.They stay brown most of the time I think I'll get ahold of stretch next week and order the front fender kit.It really makes the bike.Just hope I can figure out how to bleed the front brakes without all the problems

Does anyone know who makes the lower footpegs for the tiger?

I've been out on a couple day trips with the high fender, and have noticed no difference in aerodynamics. But by all means, please solicit the opinions of someone who is not as biased as I.

As far as lowered feetpegs, try this if you're handy...

Love My New Tiger

Taken during my 1500+ mile trip last week. Keener Pass, KY.

Near the summit of Whitetop, the second highest mountain in VA.

Showing thumper riders how big boys play



Shocking how well balanced (and fast) it can be..... the weak suspension was the only thing holding me back.

I finally got around to installing the high front fender that Stretch made for me. I think it really helps visually balance the front of the bike. Before I always thought the fairing looked like it's lower jaw was missing or something . . .

sorry, the pictures kinda suck!





Here's a 'before' shot for comparison.


Stretch, thanks for a great and thorough kit. Great instructions, nice workmanship, well thought out and presented. Good work all around!

P.S.: Due to my finely honed detective skills and keen intellect, I was able to determine your marital status from the photo on page 3 of the instructions.

Thanks for the kind words. I try to work slow and careful, and use quality parts to create a positive word-of-mouth reputation.

This 'un?




I take what I do seriously, but I try not to take myself seriously. In all things, I try to have fun.



That is one sweet Tiger. Thanks for posting pics.

--------------------

A shameless plug... I just arrived home from a 1200-mile trip. Conditions ranged from 75 degrees and sunny, followed by two days of rain, followed by 30 mph gusting wind.

If anyone is concerned about the aerodynamics of a high fender, I attest that I could not tell a difference between the previous low fender, and the high-mount.
