That's a cool bike and jacket there Trini! I like the bars and cafe seat. One piece of advise, tuck in your boot laces. You don't want them getting hooked on the shifter or brake pedal. There is no worse feeling than when you come to a stop and try and put your foot down and it won't move as you slowly tip over. Don't ask me how I know.
Cheers - will do on the laces
Great jacket - by whom?
Lol. Been there, but didn't tip.
Cheers. Jacket is by Johnson Leathers in San Francisco.
The initial moment of panic followed by the acceptance of inevitability as gravity slowly does its thing. I did it in front of a shitload of tourists right there by the Washington Monument, on the corner of 17th St & Constitution Ave. Bike was fine but my ego was shattered
Nice bike. I bet if you changed front fender for a shortened chrome one and remove the rear one altogether it would look eve better
Nice bike, I've long admired the Thruxton. The magazine Iron and Air was doing a giveaway for one at the show, I had to sign up!
I'd love to do some mods to the bike but I'm holding off until the end of riding season. Simple things that I can do quickly, I'd consider now like ignition relocation and lowering the front turn indicators .
Re: the fender elimination - I like the idea but then you lose the tail light/indicator unit. I'm all for shock mounted indicators but they're so f'in tiny, I feel like it's almost unsafe when compared to the big honking stock ones.
I tried to put some biltwell kung fu grips on yesterday but the damn bar cap screw hex heads are stripped.
Off to the hardware store after work to get an extractor.
What are your guys thoughts on airbox vs. pod filters?
Thanks - it's a Bonneville actually that's been a bit cafe'd out. I signed up for the giveaway too!
My filter is only half enclosed, so it is exposed to rain. No issues...so far. Should evaporate and be no issue. Will actually steam clean cc, lol. I'd think any rain that'd waterlock you would be the kind that you shouldn't be ridin' in.
Black jacket and brown boots? This IS the style forum...
Well that's just greedy!
I was too lazy to pull on my Gasolinas.
