    I believe an update on the preparation of MoBigger Bird is in order.

    Annie's new ride is coming along nicely.

    I think Cee needs to confer with Annie.

    I’ll wager that if a lowered version will fit Cee, then you will be writing a check. Great time to buy. BMW is giving $1000 discount, free NAV VI and dealers tend to bargain on the leftover stock this time of year.

    Naked and pre-farkled.




    Update on MO BIGGERBIRD:

    Currently the new girl is resting quietly in a hermetically sealed vault at TMS ...
    waiting patiently for a bit more glitz from the farkle fairy.
    Many pieces have arrived and should be installed within the week.
    AltRider seems to be the vendor of choice.
    Talking strategies with DapMan on some cosmetic wrap options and gathering info about different seat ideas.
    Will keep the stock saddles and have already horse traded for a sacrificial front to send off for a rebuild.
    Decision on windscreen modifications will conclude post spring test ride.
    Jesse bags have been ordered.
    Mirror extensions will hopefully be under the tree on Xmas AM.
    That's all I got so far.

    OBTW Nice bike Annie!

    Well I hope you are paying regular visits to the fledgling.

    Yup, AlrRider seems to be producing some very high quality stuff. I put Altrider upper and lower crash bars on Annie's bike and they are much beefier than the BMW stuff on the GSA. They went on with no banging, prying or expletives.

    Nice to hear Kev, I bought all Altrider bars for my bike but have yet to install... lowers, uppers, skid plate, rear rack, headlight guard & radiator guards... enough stuff that they threw in decals and asked me to look like a Nascar sponsored ride...! LOL

    I like what I have read about the Puig.
    Aeroflow available in clear only.
    MO BGR don't do clear!
    Ended up ordering the Cymark windscreen supports from across the pond.
    Hope they arrive before riding season.

    Have not pulled the trigger on the seat restructure other than to say it will need to be .........

    You might want to take a few minutes and look at these . A friend of mine has a KTM 1190 with these installed and loves them. Come to think of it, he was at Potossi this year with them. Oh well. You lose all the turbulence of the stock mirrors, and for big boy bodies, you can actually see behind you, they fold up in crash or parking situations and next to no vibration. Very nicely made and I'm contemplating putting them on my GS, more to get rid of the turbulence. Watch the video......
