    The wife and I took a trip round Europe this autumn. France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Lichtenstein and Switzerland were on our route. Here's a few pics of the Austrian Alps.

    An Englishman always carries his brolly!!!

    A great trip of 2500 miles, but next time we'll plan a better route!

    Awesome scenery in Austria and Switzerland though.

    Cheers.:D

    Looks like an awesome trip! Thanks for sharing the pix. I've been there a few times by car but have yet to do it on a bike. The Austrian Alps are my favorite.

    What would you do differently with the route next time?

    I purchased a set some months ago, just put 5000 Km on them a fortnight ago. Really happy with them. YSS your side of the pond built them to suit the weight I wanted and they were spot on. :clap

    Good info. I had Hagon's on my Bonnie and wasn't super thrilled with them. Willing to pay for a better shock, not quite ready for a grand on Ohlins though.....

    Progressives have caught my eye too.

    About 80% of the mods were removed. Minus the pipes, frame sliders, and rear sprocket.

    The ice have taken over the roads so it is mod season. The ups guy delivered this pack today with matris kit that include, fork caps with preload adjustment,
    linear fork springs,black anodised alloy spacers,calibrated oil flow valves
    they recomend SAE 20 fork oil.

    Cheers danketchpel,

    I think I would take more time to "get there", we seemed to rush it a bit, maybe a meandering route through France to get to Switzerland first.

    Still, we had a great time.

    And they all seem to love bikes.

    :wink:

    Just bought a wolfman express bag, I really like the look and features but haven't mounted her yet because I'm terrified I'll jack up the tank paint. Anyone have any experience with something other than that whole Hannibal Lector looking tank wrap thing for protection?

    Side note I ended up getting Ikon rear shocks and Ricor Cartidges for the forks. :freaky

    Clear contact "paper". Protects the tank, nearly invisible, removeable.

    They don't make them anymore. Pitty since it is a great tankbag that also protect the tank.
