It's been over a year since I've frequented Stromtrooper. I've been so busy with my new job since I transferred. I've done quite a bit to my bike since, just more crazy mods and a new exhaust.
For those that remember, I have straight pipes on my Vee. I have since fabricated dual 3 1/2" drag pipes with baffles to better complete the look of my bike and it's actually quieter at higher rpm than the original uglies I made.
I have also fitted two LED spot lights on my forks, absolutely love love love them, very very bright.
My last mod I did before I left Stromtrooper was completely covering my bike in bedliner. I have done nothing to it and it looks just like it did when I first painted it. Love it! I also just yesterday installed my own 7/8" lift links to raise my bike up, I will never look back.
I've put a total of 28600 miles on my bike in the two years I've had it. My original tourance front tire is still on with about 32000 miles on it so far, I'm looking to replace, but it's still ok.
Also, the "budget" $100 steering stabilizer I put on the headlight frame and front fork is still working great, never once had even a thought of a wobble from the steering.
My cheapy $40 top case finally gave up a couple weeks ago. The cables broke about 7 months ago, and the stress of opening 180 degrees has broken the hinges. I'll be getting another bigger, better one next week, as I hate not having easy storage.
Glad to be back after so long, going to troll the forum for awhile to catch up.
