    ...at Jordan Dam near Wetumpka, AL. The Ole Gal turned over 85K miles on the way home.

    Here's me and my Funduro at a cross country rally in Australia called the Condo 750, this is at the end of 720 km of racing and 200 km of transports, I saw the finish line and completely missed the last caution in the roadbook, hence the jump.

    They look pretty cool!
    How much?

    I also would like to see a pic of front of the bike and a closer look of the aux lights mounts.

    Thanks,

    I have since shortened the bolts that hold the lights on so they don't stick out so much and plasti-dipped the bracket.

    Making them was a winter project. Nothing I sell. But if you want the template....

    Please don't take this the wrong way, because I think you did a great job with the lights and brackets. However, for safety purposes I believe any auxiliary lights - especially ones that might be used during the day - should be farther away from the turn signals.

    A buddy of mine had a pair of lights mounted similarly on his 2001 Dakar and whenever I'd ride with him I could never see his turn signals flashing because the nearby auxiliary lights overpowered them. I'm not sure what the effect would be at night because I don't think we ever rode together after dark.

    Personally, if I were to put more lights on I'd mount them lower and away from the turn indicators. I'm admittedly a little over cautious after being hit by an SUV while stopped with turn signal on waiting for traffic.

    I must say that this Heidenau are strong tyres, the bike was loaded but the rim didn't touch the ground:

    One call, 20 minutes waiting, and here is the help :1drink:
