    What engine guard bars do you have on the 690 @OldTriumphRider? Looks like there is an upper and lower section.

    Goggle Rumbux ....
    the bars have a skid plate on them that does not go into your foot pegs... I didn't care much for that.
    the rear bars and rack are also Rumbux .. I got them in black , both come in orange or black.
    if you don't see what you want , message me and I'll send you some pix of mine .... Ronnie

    Nearly nothing to ride around Knoxville. I'm almost always down that way or out towards Greenville/ Cosby.

    Been slow riding last couple months ,Barb pinched nerve in her back and it's causing major pain in her left leg , got the big epidural injection on the 15th , she's had them before with mixed results. Wish her luck , she needs it.
    This is us now

    I see more than half my pix are screwed up by PB , have to go back and try to fill in some pix.
    Update on Barb , she had surgery on Tues , Aug 8th to fix her back , turned out a little more than we thought , but nothing else worked and she's been in pain all yr .
    Today she was looking better and they got her up for a short walk in the I.C. unit . May be in a room tomorrow and maybe out of hospital by first of week. We have talked about the riding some , guess time will tell but the Dr. says you have to choose what you want to do and weigh out the circumstances ... like a fall now could be serious with all the screws and rods in her back . She will have limited movement as for a bending and at 70 yrs old , well , our healing time is limited , so to speak. We'll see what next yr brings !

    Dang I hate to hear that, tell her we are praying for her recovery, maybe you guys could think about a sidcar rig just to keep the wind in your face.

    I'm from Knoxville and there are lots of good roads north and east. Head toward Sneedville and that area. Routes 70, 33, 66. All fabulous rides.
