I really don't keep anything in the fork bag other then my paper and a few little things. I don't carry any tools that are heavy in the bag so it really don't do anything to the fender. I am really not all that worried about it either. It has been like that for quite awhile and hasn't done any damage.

she handles just fine for me. It's no corner carver, but the custom was never really meant to be one. It has the look I was going after though.

I like the bike lowered. Lowering mine as soon as I get it back home from storage. How much did you lower the front?

The front is lowered about 2 inches. I am now at the point where I am trying to decide if I want to put chrome covers on the motor or black it out. I am really not sure which way I want to go.

that sucks man. that is the first thing everyone says when they see how low my bike is and that I have the fork bag like that. I really am not all the worried about the fender. If it gets messed up eventually I will just repaint it or put a different one on. It has been like the for alittle under a year now and I haven't had any problems with it doing anything to the fender.
