    That is cool you managed to work that-in. Well I too will be making frequent trips to LA in my future, probably road trips though... finally have an excuse to ride highway 1 and 101. My daughter starts her graduate work at UCLA this fall.

    Rick, don't forget to look at the October 2012 issue of the IAMC Newsletter for Alan & Katy's DV ride report and GPS tracks before you go.

    Thanks! You got a good looking bike there Sam! I haven't gotten a chance to stretch her legs let, but already really like the bike. Can I ask what crash bars you have on your girlie and where you purchased them at? Also are those HT panniers? If so what size? hope to see you out on the road this year!

    Hi'ya, The guards and highway pegs are HT products as are the Panniers. I have the original Tiger panniers and mounting hardware in storage.

    Not sure but you may able to special order the Guards for the tiger... will probably have to wait a bit for manufacture; that is if he still has the template.

    Could maybe make you a good deal on the Triumph Panniers.

    Hi All;

    As an introduction, I am Ron Baldner from Boise(Ron in Boise). I have been a dirt biker and adventure rider since 1959. A friend of mine and I are heading to Southern Utah the middle of March for an extended adventure. We are taking our motorhome/camper 2 TW 200s and going to explore new country for us.

    We will be heading back this way about the second week in April. If there are any riders who see this post and wish to join in for part or all of this trip, you are welcome to join.

    G-Day Ron, Thanks for throwing out the offer, but I am heading to Death Valley end of this month with a small group, and well I don't think the wife would be thrilled with me turning around heading back down. That, said, I so want to head back to southern Utah, that place is a geological Mecca to explore.

    Have GREAT Ride. BTW I had a TW for almost 14 years Great little machine! I kinda miss not having mine.
