Project... "Any Road"

Recommended Posts

 
Haha! I lost ya did I??? Hopefully I can bring ya back with some cool riding photos soon.
 
 

The Beak showed up today.... one of the more frivolous motorcycle purchases I've ever made,  but it just seemed so fitting to this build.  It's a nice piece,  so well done it looks 100% OE when fitted.   
Higdonian cage also supposed to be showing up today!

I got the Evotech Performance radiator guard in and installed.  Nice little piece.  A little underwhelming for the price but it looks to be one of the nicer and more protective radiator guards on the market.  I must say it looks badass when installed and really finishes off the front view of the bike.

@gst95dsm - That EvoTech radiator guard looks like a really nice piece.   I just ordered one from Motostarz, who has them on sale now for $87.37 USD...  seems like a good deal if anyone else is in the market.

I really dig the Adventure Sport look you've come up with.   Nice work!

Thanks man!  Feels like a new bike!  I can't believe how much more attention the bike gets now.

I was eyeballing this little "ram" style mount that ties into the windscreen mount and get's your phone or whatever other device you have mounted right there front and center. It's available on Amazon for under $30. I just installed it and it's pretty cool. I definitely like my phone mounted there better than on my handle bars. On my cross country trip, my phone got soaked a few times to the point where it would not charge. I think being tucked behind the windscreen it's much more protected in those situations and also much easier to see without taking eyes off the road. Anyhow..... no instructions on the install are given, it's not hard. The only confusion was whether the mount went above or below the windshield mount, it goes below. If you put it above you can't put the windscreen on.

Pegs came in today!  Man they are actually quite nice.  They are wider than I thought they'd be,  which is good.  They seem very stout.  Machined out of a big hunk of aluminum.   They are able to rotate around to not only drop down a little,  but also forward.  I think this will be a slight improvement in riding position for me,  and the added width will greatly help the proposition of standing while riding.  I'm not quite finished with the install since I need to source a cotter pin for the left side,  but overall I think they are pretty cool and will serve my purpose well.
