    Installed the huge Kawasaki frame sliders. Installed Woodcraft axle sliders. Removed the tank stickers.

    Next steps are to install the tank and knee pads and a dry run with the bike on the trailer.

      Curios to see if the Kawasaki frame/case sliders give you issues.

      I had a set (forget which bike) that my shin kept rubbing against when shifting or braking.

      Back of the bike looks outstanding!

      I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

          I don't think it will. These are far forward from the pegs, and I'm no where near as tall as you.

              Your bike is looking awesome, Mark! What trailer did you end up going with?

                    I have a single bike trailer for sale if you're interested, otherwise sure, I'll accept a $3000 cash deposit up front

                        Looks good Mark.

                        Thought you were going to get the additional wheel chock in the middle so you can haul only one bike when necessary?

                          Wonder how much the rear end is going to drop with bike(s) on the trailer?

                          Although it looks like most of the weight will be sitting over the axle.

                            You are right, I completely forgot about that. Just placed the order, I expect it'll be here next week or so.

                              Not sure, we'll see. What's your concern?

                                Just how much load will be on the rear suspension.

                                Too much tongue weight or how the load is distributed can cause handling issues with the car and trailer.

                                Do you have tongue weight and gross trailer weight numbers for your car?
