    Anybody heard from Highway Dirt Bikes? Ordered Thursday and website isn't working today. I don't know how to tag someone in a post.

    UPDATE
    Chad has been super to work with on some 390 handguards. I don’t think you can go wrong with him.

    Aftermarket windshield and riser are not coming fast...!

    There are 2-3 riser option but non one have offset, if you rise the handlebar straight up, it became closer to the rider, it's enough closer stock...

    And beside the 790 high windshield, there is no great and good looking option for now.

    The rade/garage oke fit, but it's made for the 790 and our headlight don't have the exact same angle and it look weird

    My first over 500 km ride in a day on this bike. About 250 kms were SHIT roads with other bikes, gravel, construction equipment, and trucks all jostling for 2 feet of ground, and the rest express ways with dogs, birds and people going across and back hoping YOU KEep a watch at 100 kmph.

    Which was my sweet spot.

    Am getting old for this shit. I think 500 kms here is about 1200 miles in the west. Lol

    300miles, 60miles to 100 kms. But still a good run, between the dogs, chickens , unsigned gravel and new potholes. The wonders of Asia, then the great views.
    India is on the top of our list but...only to wait.

    Just picked up my 390 today. Noticed the rear seat wasn't seated correctly, then discovered why, the front seat is hitting on the positive battery terminal and the rubber bumpers have a good 1/2 to 3/4" from where they are supposed to contact the frame. I looked at it further, and the whole thing looks a little wonky, so I took a picture and I'd like some opinions please, is this all wonky, or is this how it's supposed to look? You see the air filter box, it looks twisted compared to the frame, which might explain why the positive battery terminal is way higher than it's meant to be... thoughts?

    Come join us in the owners thread, https://advrider.com/f/threads/390-adventure-owners-thread.1450567/
    Lots of good help and probably more relevant for you. I'll take a look in the morning and let you know what mine looks like, but from memory I'd say that looks wrong.
