Western Branch Rd Linville.
Above Jerome AZ, good times!!
I spent the long weekend exploring on and around the ID BDR.
Is that a skateboard wheel on the passenger peg?
Haha, yup! I don't use the pass pegs and taking them off completely left the swingarm too exposed on the left side. I figured the skateboard wheels would work well as frame sliders (or "crash bobbins" for you brits).
Picked up the small fly screen and fitted it this week. Keeps the dash clean and also hides how the back of it looks. Works okay and puts air flow around the shoulders now instead of the mid abdomen area which was a bit tiring in windy gusty conditions. Seems to smooth it out and takes some strain off of the wrists, arms and shoulders on windy rides.
Also fitted the smaller indicators front and rear and the smaller tail light relocation unit.
Malibu Scrambling threw the smoke.
You can take the whole bracket off if you choose. I did that and just placed the anchoring bolts into the holes.
How are the tyres working out?
Great photos and bike setup.
What tyres have you fitted?
Any scratching on tank from tank bag? I really want one but don’t want to mess up the beautiful tank.
No complaints thus far. They take a minute to warm up, but I ride the canyons hard and they never squirrel on me. Lean in takes a hair more effort than a standard street tire. So far in the dirt they're rockstars.
Nope. I've had that same bag on my last 9 bikes, hasnt left a mark yet. If you want to be double safe, you can lay a clear protector film on the tank. I know Harley guys that do that and it seems to be a smart option. I wouldnt go into heavy dirt with any bag on the tank though as dirt will definitely find it's way between the tank and the bag.
Thanks goodcat. Who makes the bag?
Wolfman. Though I just tried to find a link for you and it looks like they discontinued it some time ago. Here's a link to the updated version which I don't much care for......
Awesome, thanks so much!!
Might fit the front and then wait for the rear Tourance to wear out. It hasn't been too bad so far, unlike the front one. Thanks for your input.
Some photos from today's 400klm ride in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
The wolfman E base and luggage work perfectly for the XE.
The heat-shield from wolfman does the trick as well.
Yes, I know. I had them off completely, but I put them back on and did the skateboard wheel thing to create a buffer between the bike and the ground (on the left side specifically). I ride this thing like an a-hole and nearly poked a hole in the swing arm on one tumble I had.
Woah--That is awesome! Time for you to RIDE!
