Thanks man, I'm just amazed I pulled it off, stillneed to get it painted right,hard totell but thats just a$15 rattle can job, up here you cant really afford any down time from riding so I just wanted it to fly so I could go ridin.I'm definatly diggin that rear set up you got goin on, been a pipe deam of mine since I've owned the bike to one day score a fat rear end. How do you like those triple trees, notice any big diff in cornering??

Hey how are you? When my kids were young I used to send their Santa letter from the store there every year when I came up for work every October. http://www.santaclaushouse.com/shopcontent.asp?type=visitsch One of my favorite stories is one time I came into the store and there was nobody around then I heard a rustling behind the register counter and when I looked back there I saw the very-short cashier. Its so cool all the costumes all year, I swear I believe that Elves are real buddy!


Anyway sorry for getting off-topic, welcome aboard and have fun!

Looks like you've been having a lot of fun with your Warrior. I especially like the headlight bucket made out of an old handicapped sign. Dig the avatar too. Take it easy.

Thats funny cause my sister worked there for about 5 years, she was probably the one you saw I guess they have a hard time keeping help around there which I don't understand cause who wouldnt want to be Santa's little helper???

I really like the trees. Best money I have put in the bike. (Rear end included!) The handling is a little different, not bad just different. After 20 min I forgot completely about it. If I didn't switch off with my dad every once in a while I would never notice the difference.

Welcome to the forum!!

How long is your riding season, like 15 minutes? Or do you just fit tracks to your Warrior.

Seriously, I think you live in a beautiful state and I hope to visit someday, and...I think your governor is hot!!

Ride Safe!!

Thanks I appeciate the praise. Yeah the fender was probably the best thing I could do for her, I love the look of the stock fender and tailight but hated the ginormous length of the fender I definalty reccomend it man. Good luck with the chop, I have alot more pics of the chop from angles and what not, downto measurements and pretty much everything you need to do it exceptall the time it takes so feel freehit me up if I can be of any help.

Love the rear fender mod! Great job AK!

Thanks alot, I love those sidemounts you do, but can those only be ordered in bulk or can I place asingle order? I made my own this summer out of what I had left over from my headlight mod but seems the thin aluminum couldnt handle the air resistance as well as I hoped, started to crack in the corners but your designs are simplebut very appealing so I'd definatly love to get my hands on one.
