as for the girl riding with me, we haven't rode on this set up yet but i cant say i think it will be much different. than stock length. only cut 2 1/2 inches off. as far as lurking on this site, i know what you mean. i've been trolling this site for a while waiting to get an XL and finally sold my cbr so i could get one. dont know why i waited so long to finally get one. my bike suits my personality perfectly.

oh and as far as the tank lift moving the tank... its at the same spot it's always been in the back, only the front is up 2 inches.

alright thanks, just thought it was odd you seem to have a gap, and mine rolls me seat up. my lift may be 2.5" as well.

thanks, and keep up the good work!

Auto Gem Baby Bullets. Not DOT legal and they are only two wire. Mine are wired as turn/ extra brake lights. I have the side mount brake light for stop/ running.

Have not posted in years. Thought I would throw my Nightster into the pool. All mods stolen from you all here at XL. "Finished" the bike last year. Now just riding her.
