Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

did you do anything special when you painted the windscreen and front fender? I'm thinking about cutting down my stock screen and painting something on it.

And I cracked the front fender, so after I get that repaired, I might paint something on it too.

Bikes are looking good

Our painter used an Adhesion Promoter on all of the plastics prior to
painting them - image of exact product attached. HOWEVER, you CAN NOT use
it on the windscreens. The windscreens are more of a cross your fingers
kind of dealŠ Actually, much care must be taken in preparing them. Our guy
cleaned the windscreens very thoroughly with Windex and then meticulously
went back over them with an extremely soft cloth to make sure that no
finger prints or the like remained. (He wore gloves the entire time). He
also painted the backside of the windscreens, not the front. But as I said
the windscreens can be very touchy, luckily we have a talented painter,
The other plastics are no problem as long as one follows the directions on
the adhesion promoter product.

Looking forward to your impressions of the Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires you had on one of the bikes in a previous post.

edit: It was the bike pictured in posts 312 & 313.

The Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires are MY pick for the beat OFF Road/On Road
tire that we have tested on the Baja Tiger.
They work GREAT on every type of terrain we put the Triumphs thru.
Hard pack , Cobblestone, Silt, Loam, Sand, they are D.O.T rated for the HWY and curse at 75mph nice and smooth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the next best Tire pair are the Conti TK80
