Thanks. Tried to keep it simple. The Company did a nice job off the line...the only other item I added was a solo bag on the other side.

I powder coated a few more things today! Brass powder coated my RSD filter cover and brass powder coated my new dark custom derby cover.

Hey by the way congrats on your pic in American Iron!
Must have been an old pic though!?!
I saw it and thought man he's done way more since that pic?
Anyway you packing in the miles now that the weather finally broke?
Should be up your way soon - thinking about dropping off my side covers with Joe and Mike to match the paint they laid down over winter.
Looking good!

2 or three inch drop block, but the angle will be more pronouced so
i held out for the shorter profile low. simple to do, not to much money and
makes a world of difference.
Yeah, awesome, Ill have to do that mod, as right now it feels like my spine is my current suspension...

Trying not to miss a single day of riding. This morning I rode the Seward Highway from Anchorage down to Girdwood and back. It is one of the most scenic stretches of highway around. If you make it up here, do this ride.
