Little Tea Pot
Hey Baggers, I just wanted to drop you a few lines to say I’ve been a reader since issue one and a subscriber since issue two. I love the bikes and articles. I wish there were more on the Vics but I understand that the majority of the market share belongs to the Motor Company so you have to print what is out there. Anyway, here is a pic of my 2007 Victory Kingpin Tour minus the Tour. I’ve made many changes like adding a stage two intake, pipes, and doing some motor work. I have tons of Victory chrome parts, as well as Arlen Ness Radius Bars, mirrors, and lay-down LED plate mount, Tomahawk sissy bar and rack, KewlMetal chrome fork covers and windshield Quick Disconnect brackets, a Mustang seat, a trailer hitch, and many other pieces of bling. This pic is from a honeymoon ride my wife, Krystal, and I took this past July. The photo was taken in front of the old Teapot Dome gas station out side of Zillah, Washington. The Vic pulled the trailer without a glitch and did so in style. Hope to see our pic in your great mag! Keep up the good work and ride safe.
Customized to Honor a Legend
Baggers crew, I’ve been a subscriber for four years and I have to say, it’s by far the best. I bought this 2000 Yamaha Road Star two years ago and at the time it had all the bells and whistles I wanted. It had loud, thumping Hard-Krome pipes, a batwing fairing, built-in sound system, and a studded leather seat. However, my desire was to personalize it into a more retro classic style. After spending a year on the internet I finally came up with some products that would suit it best for a great price. I got a new two-tone over-sized leather-studded seat and fringed saddlebags from saddlebags.net. I added mudflaps from chillhowee.net. And finally the finishing touch was a stunning 1940s pin-up girl Indian tank logo to honor Indian motorcycles of the past. I know it’s not the real thing, but it makes me happy to honor the original, plus it keeps the heads turning during my favorite rides from Toronto to Collingwood or Niagara-On-The-Lake—taking the country roads of course! Long live the ride.
Hi guys, enclosed are a couple shots of my '05 Electra Glide. I extended the bags and rear fender, and lowered the rear almost 3 inches. The fairing has a carbon fiber wrap that also can be found on the fuel door and saddlebag latches. I added a set of Alloy Art 13-inch bars an 18-inch Ride Wright front wheel and I took a crapload of parts to the powdercoater to get covered in black. The bike was painted mostly satin black with a few gloss black pieces to help set it off. I can convert it to a two-up in no time for the longer rides. I have about 38,000 miles on it now, which for living in Washington isn't too bad. Special thanks to my brother Todd for laying down the awesome paintjob.
Baggers, some say three’s a crowd but as you can see in these photos of my 2005 Triumph Rocket III, 140 cubic inches and three cylinders makes for a very hot and quick bagger. My ride is equipped with a Corbin fairing and saddlebags. I installed a Jardine Big Boss exhaust and a Power Commander III. Some of the additional mods include chromed wheels with polished rotors and some personal customizing. Thanks for showing it off.
