Great bike, well done I got mine about 2 months ago with v&h pipes a hypercharger and a re-jet. Went riding on the weekend with 2 Harley softails and a triumph thunderbird, experienced riders all of them. Kept up no problem, and maybe even more nimble in the corners lol. They got me in the straight line starts though. Cubic inches, there ain't no substitute! You'll have a great time cheers Tim
lol yea? soun
thanks mate. that's sick, im looking at those upgrades myself. one thing at a time tho.
lol yea unfortunately no substitute for a Harley but that sounds mad!
any excuse to jump on it. just taken her in for a service and I miss it already
My only complaint with my first bike, a 2010 custom, was that the mirrors were too wide.
I turned them inwards 180, and the shortened the stalks by 50 mm.
It's in the showcase under '1st bike XVS650 Custom' if you want a look.
I agree, I'm forever adjusting mine, was looking at aftermarket ones. I'll check out your pics
You lot must have the build of a rake. I like them as I can see past my arms to view what is coming up behind. Not interested in seeing just my chest and arm pits.
yea definitely looking to replace the mirrors. I was looking at the kuryakyn skull hand mirrors. google It, they look tough! only thing is tho. before I commit to a "theme" for my bike I want to make sure all parts I buy go with it if that makes sense?
Yep. 70kg after a big dinner. I have to tie myself to the bike at anything over 80kmh
Yeah kuryakyn make some mean handgrips too. That's my next project, there's a how-to video in the cruiser section here
sweet. ill look into it
I wouldn't think I could be described that way.
They are still easy to adjust and set so that you just see the edge of your shoulders, and the lanes either side and most of the lane behind you.
Cool bike dude, I love the midnight edition.
Nice ride man. Looks as mint as, cant wait to see what you do with it!
That's a sweet ride!!!
