    holy batcave that is an abomination. I´m not bashing you sir, but that is just plain ugly. I could live vvith buffeting, not the that screen form. The bike aesthetics should be kept to the rally style. And that ofcourse is my humble opinion.

    But hey, you are riding and i´m not. :freaky

    I am not concerned with what it looks like. If that was the case I would have got a Harley with the chrome and tassels hanging off the bars to pick up chicks
    I should know better than to post this stuff here

    reminds me of why I am a loner
    the 950 makes a great lone rider bike

    "If it looks stupid but works. It's not stupid."


    Cleaned what I thought was a blown fork seal, with some 35mm film.

    No more "leak". Whoever thought that one up, I owe them a beer. :freaky

    Sorry sir. As I were trying to say and failed miserably doing. It wasn't a personal attack. Just my opinion of twisting the bike to much. Which I actually shouldn't be doing since my bike is even more hacked up. As said in the last sentence, you win because you ride. Post it up

    Regards

    Only did around 60 miles on it, but so far it is as advertised! James and Sonia are super people to work with...It's like I told the SO...There is a reason there is a 6 mo wait!

    Well, I almost gave up on this project. It was so hard to cut 13 gauge stainless.

    I thought about cleaning this up and painting it black. Then, I decided that I liked the roughed up look. :D Good enough.

    My Big Orange is apparently mad at me for spending so much time with the latest addition to the stable, Ginger the 690R.
    The o-ring for the gear position switch has developed a leak. Not a standard size.
    I guess I'll be ordering in some tomorrow.

    I found an o-ring in my harbor freight metric o-ring set that has been in there leak free for the last few years. I think it was a little smaller but thicker than stock, it fits a hair more tightly.
