For the Shitter that is being turned into a tourer.
I have a National Cycle 'Street Shield' EX which I've lost the mounts for. I'll be ordering a set of those too for comparison purposes to this.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
A VAST Parabellum with even greater coverage than the 'Street Shield'. This is all part of my plan for my lap of Oz in the next couple of years.
I've got my Mana bars on the way back from Townsville so they'll take care of the stupidly wide bar problem and the back end is going to be suspended by a fully adjustable Hyperpro which I'm hoping to get built for maximum comfort rather than precision of control, the Matris on the Horror fulfills that role now. At the moment the supplier is sending me the body with reservoir to ensure it will mount without fouling the airbox.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I reckon it'll be fine but I'll dummy it up for him just to make sure.
Then it's on to the forks. I wrote to Andreiani about their cartridges but they haven't replied so fuck 'em. The Showas are a superb fork in their own right. I'll get Mr. Smith to re-spring and re-Valve them for me and they'll likely be just as good and cheaper. Once again, comfort for distance is my primary aim.
2 inch dropped pegs are on their way. I have some lowering toe pegs fro KoF that will help too. Then it's off to Queensland for rego. Once it's roadworthied I'll see how the seat feels. If it's a problem I'll get the 'Baboon's Arse' seat modified by MJM in Goulburn.
It's looking and feeling good.......
