Customization Mission 1: Accomplished

I had a pretty good trip up to Connecticut this past weekend. That’s not what this post is about, though. I’ll write about CT later. This post is about my motorcycle.
When I arrived back in Pittsburgh from my trip, I discovered that my order from Cruiser Customizing had arrived. In the package was an indoor bike cover that I’ll use in the garage here, as well as the previously mentioned turn signal relocation bracket. Of course, one of my first orders of business this week was to get those turn signals moved.
Below you can see where the rear turn signals were located on the bike originally:

You may notice that their placement is right where most saddlebags would go.
Here are pictures of the bike after I moved the signals along with my saddlebags mounted:

I like the new location of the signals, though I’m not sure I’m digging on those saddlebags for this bike. In addition to the aesthetics not seeming quite right, the right bag is only a few inches off the top exhaust pipe. After test riding around today, the bag/pipe issue doesn’t seem to be a problem, though the bag was only lightly loaded.
I think I may look around the web at other bags I could get for the bike.
As for now, though, it’s time to watch some football. Go Stillerz!

    […] As I previously mentioned I wanted to find some new saddlebags for my bike, as my old Bike Master bags didn’t quite fit the bill for the Shadow. They looked ok on the dumpy old XS400, but really look bad on the new bike, as well as being slightly too large given the high exhaust on the right side of the bike. Bike Master Bags: […]
