TRADED IT!



Even though it's one of the best bikes I've had, it's time for a change!

I didn't even think about the color match with the old eldo till I got home and saw them side by side. I don't normally match things up like that but I promise I won't repaint my truck!

I've decided it's worth it - yesterday I started fitting my Akrapovic 2>1. Only drama was removing the standard plumbing without damaging anything, then discovering the Akra pipe doesn't fit over the V-Mod mid mounts. So today's chores are removing them, re-fitting the forward controls (temporarily) finish fitting the new exhaust and going for a ride. Y es I will post some pics later. T-Rod45 - I agree with your sentiments regarding cretins....be aware, be very aware because they are not.

Took mine out for a leisurely breakfast run with the Mrs... Loved how the Arnott's performed. Zero bottoming out with her on the back. The stiffer ride feels good and they look great.

Fitted my Akrapovic pipe - not quite finished, one retaining spring on the muffler I cannot get on. Run out of patience and I will put up some pics tomorrow when I get home from work and finish it off....Had to ditch the V-Mod mids, forward controls are back on until I get the H-D mids fitted.

Put air in the tires, checked the oil and rode 30 miles to charge the battery. In Seoul, on a Saturday night, 30 miles is a long ride. Lots of distracted drivers watching their DMB TV's, talking on cell phones, and either drunk, crazy or both. Tomorrow if I can find the hardware (its somewhere in my collection of parts), put on a base plate, luggage rack and tank bra.

Yep, thanks!

Only put about a 100 miles on it so far. I do have an issue with the front brake the dealer will hear about, feels like there's air in the lines. Other than that I'm lovin it.

Sorry bro, but that's the way they usually feel, they'll bleed and rebleed them and in a couple more miles they'll feel just as crappy. Don't ask me how I know....
