Nice
By the way...
What factor did you make a choice towards clip-ons instead of a clubman?

I really liked the drag bar position, the clubman bars I looked at would've raised it to where I didn't want it, so I thought I'd go in the opposite direction.

I love the clip ons. I love how they look, and the change in stance. Unfurtunately, without rear sets, I'm in a position that is best described as a fetal position. From looking at all my rearset options, it will be most effective to look into the clubman style bars, or risers that get the drag bars to clear. Ugh

Any updates on this machine, Flame? It's been quite awhile, and I thought I'd check in. Really liked this thread!
