wife got sick of me complaining I was sick she kicked me out of the house,lol

the weather was great,68 degrees,sunny,and roads in great shape!!!

I really did not go to ride because of being a bit sick so I cruised thru to see who was about

killboy was there and it has been to long since ive just sat and talked so I stopped by,we chatted about riding,drone quad choppers for videoing,cars and lots more,it was real nice catching up with an old friend!!!

sitting there watching cars,bikes and all kinds of stuff go by is very interesting to say the least!!

only ran thru one tank of gas but it was a day I will remember for awhile!!!!

Once in awhile, it is nice to see life from a different point of view.

First I hope your wife allows you back in the house. Second I hope you are feeling better. I'm sure just getting on your bike on a beautiful day will go a long way to making you feel better. Good luck. Be safe and enjoy the ride. Larry

Ok, I have to ask, how many miles to a tank? I know your tire mileage is extreme and am curious.
I got 200 miles out of that tank,but to be fair it was an easy tank,just riding at the gap I get 110 miles to a tank,lol

So how does the position you have them in now differ from the postiton of the stock bars?

Can you notice any difference in the flex?

Was most of the flex we have been blaming on the suspension in the stock bars all along?

Hey, there's no one riding that bike. All I see from the picture is and arm and a leg. Did the Heli Bars cost you an arm and a leg? :joke:

much like big dirt bike bars now,flatter and wider

lot less flex.,more direct feel to the ft tire if that makes se

no,i would say imho its like 65% forks and 35% bars,,,,this is just a wild guess
