This is at the outter parking lot at dodger stadium where people go to work on their minor skills etc. only it does have a grade instead of flat.

funny story... my friend took his scooter to practice his slow turning through cones and i tried his scooter and couldn't do that good, but on my bike it was easy. i think tire size might have something to do with it. ok i'll shut up now!

looks good, thought you got the risers already for her. also i do believe the 1100 lowering kit is the same 1 for the 650, i think i have couple spare ones that would be willing to sell. some how i ended up with 3, 1 on the bike, 1 new in envelope warranty replacement as original failed and the 1st one to replace the failed unit, nothing wrong with it, just was not happy with the variation available with it.

Heres the pix with the new risers. nice pullback and feel now!

Thanks.I'll have to get some good pics of the switch. Basically, I just tied the two red wires of the kill swith together, and extended the starter switch wires down the frame and to the foot peg mount. I found a waterproof momentary switch on Ebay. I think it was actually for a tractor. I made a small plate that I bolted to the footpeg mount. The foot plate isn't exactly where I want it, probably make another one later. For now it's facing forward, and just to the side of the shifter. I might turn it around, and make it a heel starter. I moved the switch because I swapped for the single cable throttle housing to give the bars a cleaner look. The other side still has the control box for the signals and horn. I will most likely move them later. I've been thinking about making my bike a jockey shift. If I do, I plan to move the controls then. I'll see if I can get a decent pic for you and post it up.

RE: Post up pics
I thought I had already posted this picture, but I must have closed the window before I submitted it. Anyway, here is a quick picture of the plate and switch. We've been having rain lately, and I haven't had many good opportunities for decent pictures. When I get everything just as I want it, I will do a quick "how to" write up, and post it on my blog.

Nice, nice ride, @Bevo1981. Super paint job.
There is great need for a sarcasm font.

That second pic is awesome Bevo! The clouds look a tad scary though, almost looks like a funnel is forming in the background.

Nice ride! I really like those mirrors - they would look great with the batwing and spoiler windshield on my 650 Custom. Who makes them and do your arms block them or do they give a good view?

Thanks,
John

Thanks John, those are just the stock mirrors that come on the Classic. They are mounted to the stock controls on a Baron's Customs Star Bar handle bar. The view is good, I only see a little of the outside edge of my arms.

Here are a few more of my Classic.
