    As you may have read earlier my beloved HP ( chassis #241 ) was written off by the BASTARD insurance PRICKS earlier in the year ,,,,,,,,, luckily a fellow inmate had two of them:wings so here it is after my first ride on a HP since 24th April ( shortly to go for another op ,,,,,, so another 6 months of no riding :bluduh:bluduh )

    Fitted,,, the forks with my Shiver internals , bark busters , heated grips , Ohlins shock and an old battered Wonderlick screen,,, Still need to fit the Marcus tank, sump guard, full Staintune exhaust system and head protectors but it seems to ride a lot smoother than the old girl ,,,,, I guess 150,000kms v 58,000kms will do that :jack

    Finally got a few things added to my HP2E: Markus underseat tank (need to finish plumbing), Holan pannier racks, Akrapovic silencer, Woody's kickstand mount, and Renazco seat.

    Looks awesome, how much did Renazco charge for the seat?

    Thanks. Believe the cost for the Renazco was $405.

    Thanks Sno Dawg!! I live in Birmingham. It's been a great 10 years on the HP2. Embarrassed that it took me ten years of lurking to post a pic. This thread is legendary for the pics of awesome views behind the bikes, I present to y'all a port-o-let and dumpster view. Roll Tide!

    EICMA 2016 didn't shown us a new HP2 model.
    That's a great news for all owners of the 2005.

    new one will be :
    * more weight ;
    * more power ;
    * more electronics ;
    * more problems probably.
    Ours are simple & powerful enough

    I just love riding this bike -

    Gonna have to disagree... Only because enhancements will mean more confounded technology.. The beauty of the bike is the "simplicity" versus it's cousins

    If the new had the same no frills commitment as the first HP2 it might be fun.

    I always laugh at these statements because the little bike guys would say that our bikes are way too complicated, its always about perspective.

    My dad is actively looking for an HP2. If any of you know of a nice clean lower miles example, please let me know. I would love to get him back to riding. He is a serious buyer, so I will make sure he doesn't waste your time.

    THANKS!

    Planned a route to ride on some dirt but the wildfires in NC messed that up so I went an alternate route and then came back and put her in her normal configuration. I have to say that while the HP2 is not meant for the highway, I did 350 miles of it yesterday and was surprised at how good it was. No where near as good as my 1150GSA, but 100 times better than an 800GS I used to have.
