    cant argue.....it looks great.

    How are the 18 inch rims working on the back, does it handle better,is it geared higher because of it? Certaining must give u a better selction of tyres. CC why did u change the rims? was it the above "handling " etc or did u bend the oem rims during some off road adventure?

    OMG.

    Is there room at the back of the (long) line of drooling admirers?

    :tb :tb :tb :tb :tb :tb :tb :tb :tb

    Cor, slap some thin Zegas or Jesses on that and it might be my new dream ride. And maybe a rifle scabbard somewhere, like alongside the forks. Viva la revolucion!

    Actually, the Pelican setup that Pir8t has would do nicely. Zowie. Love this thread.

    I sure hope he was working on mine also.
    The only "bad" thing per se about the HP2 is the wait for accessories.
    (Bags, Tank etc.)
    I guess that the price we pay for exclusivity.:D

    Can't wait to see the pictures.

    Ride Safe,

    Al said there will be two types of metal frames, steel and stainless steel, the latter being a pound lighter. They all should be back from the powder-coater by the end of the week and ready to ship. Now in Tijuana heading for the airport to fly to Portland for a book signing event at the dealer tomorrow night. See you there!

    Hey Glen!
    long time no talk, but i've been following your developments! Congrads on the new baby :clap !


    So, that frame that Al is going to introduce, going to accept only Jesse luggage? is there a special luggage for HP2, or it's any set of Jesse boxes? I know Al's products are bomb proof, but they are also heavy(at least the ones that went on R1150GS).

    Thanks!
