eMoto Hugger, Windscreen and SW Motech Tankbag Installed!

Phew! All the stuff came in while I was on vacation and tonight was the first night I could mess with the bike! Wahoo! Here are pics of what I've installed so far. Still to come: sliders, sliders, sliders, tail light kit, and new aluminum billet turn signals for the front....

Ps

Forgot to mention, had some trouble with the hugger. It is in contact with the exhaust, but not when I sit on the bike. I have been in touch with e-Moto and expect to hear from them tomorrow. Windscreen was easy, SW Motech bag a little tricky and a little big, but after losing the pillion seat opted for a larger tank bag since I won't trust anything on the back.

Vacation back east was great. Ran the Virginia Beach half marathon, visited friends (their kids in the pic), then drove to Connecticut to visit family. Somehow, I couldn't help routing the trip there to visit Bobs BMW and Fast by Ferracci! Here are those pics!!!! Oh yeah, then ran into a Triumph car show while at a church picnic. Fun little escape.

Very nice pics. Wondered where you'd been for awhile. Sounds like you're ready for some RYD TYM... er, RIDE TIME.

I had tha same problem you have with the hugger. I recomend you not to use it until you get an answer from emotouk. I know what I'm talking about. Mine totalily bended becouse of the high temperature contact. I had to send it back to them to modify the shape of it. It was because I'm not too tall and I had my rear adjustment in the lowest possition, so it touched the exhaust. It took a 20 minutes ride to totally melt it. Anyway, Geoff and company are the best and they took care of it.
Hope you read this post before is too late.

Looks great!

Does the wind shield make a big difference or is it more for looks?

Yep, same problem with mine, but it actually only slightly melted the part that was touching the exhaust. So now it doesn't touch any more and you can't see that part of it anyway. I know it is an expensive piece, but I just lived with it.

Tony, its Geoff. Has your Brutale also been lowered? please let me know.

FERROMAN's bike has been lowered, and thus melted part of the painted hugger, luckily we managed to save it, though we had to trim part of it off.

No it was not lowered. I also think AirFuel had the same problem, but not 100% sure. I think he fixed it by shimming it.

I would also like to know the answer to this. It would be great if it offered some protection above 80mph.
