    New whip for this FOG

    have this waiting in Houston to haul back in a couple weeks... a little more suited to long trips vs my current 12R



    Still have that other one to drag out on those days when the kid in me wants to play...

    I think it is because the site you tried to link it to requires a log in; hence why they showed up for you and not me. Then CSC has disabled the "upload" feature from your HD; only linking works now.

    Nice bike though man! I'm sure that will be way more comfy on long trips than the ZX12. I really do love what BMW has done with sportbikes lately!

    Thanks! yeah, after I linked to my own page it appears to work mo butta

    It will be mucho better once I loose that monstrous chrome can and a few other odds and ends. Not to mention about 15 lbs in factory exhaust.

    Very nice man, congrats. I was looking at the XR1000, test rode it and I'm rather impressed with it.

    I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move its in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going.

    They look so much better with exhaust and a few things removed/trimmed.. not to mention lighter and mo power!

    (not mine but the general idea of where mine will be)

    Took it out for a good ride... liking it so far. Fat boy needs to loose some weight but it handles it fine on the single+ luggage or 2 up settings.

    Uploading a little vid now from today... https://youtu.be/svqgcKvHwKI

    Update after 2 day ride in NM-AZ... great bike. Handles everything from 10 mph hairpins to 110 mph sweepers without a hickup. Cruise control will spoil you quick. Could use a little more spring for my fat butt but overall I likes it.

    Canbus elec system is quirky.. need to add a couple resistors to cancel the warning lamp I have due to LED signals. Neat that all the systems can be monitored on the go on the GPS.
