Ok, thought I would drop this idea in the blender and see how bad it taste! I was trying to sell my TL1000R and found out two things: 1. I think it is worth more then everyone else and 2. I really don't want to see it go. My problem is I can't ride it more then 200-250 miles in a day due to old shoulder and wrist injuries. My other problem is I can't seem to sell it and/or afford what I would want to replace it (FJR). Soooo..... Has anyone converted a sportbike to a sport tourer? Higher bars (thinking dirtbike bars), lower the pegs, Make it a single sided exhaust and move it down to allow room for some bags. Owning a full machine shop making things like bar risers, peg mounts, bag mounts, etc doesn't scare me but things like "what bars to run" I have no idea where to start. Are longer cables available? Can you buy brake lines that are custom length? I've seen the stunt guys put dirtbike bars on their bikes but my wheelie days are long over and I would rather hear from someone that likes to ride distance. My big question is am I going to mess the ergonomics/handling of this thing so bad it wont be rideable and all the work and $$ will be in vain. Lets hear ideas!
