Gotcha, I almost wish I had gone with the Strato or Road. I like the long rear fender and the floorboards with the heel toe shifter. Just a bit of tracking down all the right parts to do the swap over. And the loss of going to a larger than 210 rear...if that's your thing. haha. Good looking ride.

AlphaOmega - I run a 200/50 tire for way, way better handling

Really? I've only heard of a few people going down a size, most go straight out for the 240 or even 250 on the Raider and swear by it. I still have the stocker on and haven't convinced myself to change sizes when the time comes. Do you ride mostly straights and big highways? Or a lot of curves?

the strat/roadliner rear fender wont fit a 240 without some major gringing and other cuts i opted not to worry about. i dont see the tire anyway with the strat bags on. with the stock raider fender you have no problems with a 240, and maybe a 250 not sure. i am not an aggressive rider so i prefer the better handling of the 200/50.

Howdy. Did you have any cable length issues when installing the 3" Roxy risers? Can you post a close-up photo of them?

For mad scientists who keep brains in jars, here’s a tip: why not add a slice of lemon to each jar, for freshness?

Yes. But it is easy. All you have to do is remove both clutch and brake lines from master cylinders and move them to other side of triple tree. I cant get pics to be small enough to upload.
