Nice set up. I noticed that you have the V-Stream windshield like I do. If you will add some side wings to it like I did you will find that you will have a much smoother air flow. If you are interested, I'll send you the pattern.

The worlds best bike

I have to admit I am in your camp on the best bike idea. I see a first rate touring machine. You are almost exactly where I plan to be on the mods. I need to do a couple of things like a PC III and engine guards but I am almost there. Congratulations and now to wear it out!

Nope, not lowered, all stock, it even has the tall seat and Rox risers, that's why I looked at BMW'S, the tall seat, spring models fit me perfectly! Just to much money for what you get/don't get (reliabilty)! Cheers-BB

Please send me the pattern! How did you mount them? They look trick, I found the airflow is much better with my extensions and Aprilia mirrors, plus I can see 100% better. Did you use lexan and how thick did you use? There is a dealer in my area and I made a set of lowers for my old cruiser for $6.00! Thanks again--BB

Thanks, I really wanted the Givi E41's, but didn't want to worry about scuffing the tops buy myself or the passenger, plus i put black reflective tape around the edge where it closes and it works great. Why do you need the PCIII, just curious, mine runs great, I'd like a aftermarket exhaust but I like the factory heatshields to much as-is. Cheers-BB
