    Default New Bars & Grips

    Went on a recent "first" long ride with others up the north CA coast, Hwy 1 and rushed to replace bars and grips to these. May not be as easy on the back as the oe bars but I like the look much better and they felt comfortable nonetheless; even with my large tank bag mounted! The oe bars had around a 5-6 "rise where these are quite a bit lower, with less pull back as well. Oe Mirrors suck and will be gone or replaced soon with a bar end. I have new Alum pegs to go on too.

    Damn, I love that bike. Enjoy brother!

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    Hey BK I was up your way last week as I had an assignment in Ahwahnee. I started out and then whipped a U-turn at the Chevron station off the 41; deciding to take the bike instead. I ended up going into Mariposa for lunch at Happy Burger and then rode the "Little Dragon" into Coulterville, and back of course returning to Fresno. Hardly anyone on the road and only crossed paths with a few cyclists. Road was near perfect with the exception of the usual gravel in the middle of the lane in a few areas or turns.
