Default New front end & bag

As promise in my introduce thread (Here)
I change the 18" front wheel for a 21" and the drag bar for a XR bar.

Here's the lateral bag and the carries luggage.
Both can be mount separately.

If you looked at his intro you would see that the bike looks 100% better and that this guy most likely travels on this bike. I dont think he just putts around dodging potholes.

Dude,...I sooooo dig luggage racks. Nothing like strapping down 3 cases of beers and riding through town to get home. Besides,..i like taking some shit with me when I travel.


And the only think cooler than a luggage rack,...is a Milk Crate!

I like the reflection of the shutters on the house in the chrome on your bike. Very very nice. The bike too. I like the luggage rack, that looks freakin sweet.

Ok, let's answer in order :

Supprat : The bag 's coming from japan custom. I chose it because of the price & the round shape. It follows the wheel more than an rectangular bag.
Either it looks always full so no one knows what's inside or not.

S.T.P. is wright, I'm travelling whit those bike. Last friday to sunday, I ride about 950kms to see friends & have fun whit them.
Here's the bike whit the tent, the sleeping bag and oder stuff 2 weeks ago (700/800kms again).


On the road :



Big Wheel : here's the luggage rack before paint



Brothaman : Woaouuu !! Milk case is bigger than a FLH top case !! You can take your home in travel !

Strokersporty : Yes it's start good whit the mag. The problem is not the mag but the strength's leg.

Dusty Shmo : Yes taht seat looks crazy but had work very fine. We make long distances like this and I said it, she was get asleep in my back many time... I had to wake her up to be sure not to lost her on the road. Thanx for my 32 year old, "Ol lady".

R-U-Up2-It : You can see my chop project in my intro. Sure you'll like it. I'm bying parts for it but I haven't got time to work on it now.



Soulfur : I'm leaving near Switzerland in The Country "Le Doubs"

To all, thanx for your notices & impressions.

ASAP, I'll post pics from the bag support.

great bike roads up around there - lived in coillieure, carcasonne and the 7th for a good bit of this duder's life - me and Ace have been talking about bombing Paris to Prague via the Pyrennes - still in the fog of late night debate - just don't know about getting the X into the EU
