I didn't do anything - but when I got home from work today - I found a brand new Fieldsheer leather suit waiting for me on my bed. Didn't ask for it, wasn't expecting it - BUT very cool of the wifey. Felt obligated to take her to dinner! Now that I'm thinking about it - Why did she do that?
But once you look under your bike, you too will be wanting to get an undertray made and bung up the holes in the end of the subframe to keep water out of there, it just looks wrong and exposed. I've just ordered a track stand and am going to get the rear wheel and cans off and have a go at knocking something up with Strada_Stu. Thinking of an ally plate or some black plastic, I'll have to see what I can find. I'll get some pics and sizes up once I get round to doing it.
Just wait till you take them there baffles out......OMG !! Get your earplugs ready
Had to send the suit back - a wasn't crazy about the HUGE speed hump on the back!!!! So I asked for another, without the hump!!!
Refited Axio tailbag to sit a bit more back.
Ordered myself a track stand for my bike so I can whip my Arrows and rear wheel off so I can get measured up for an undertray........pics and template to follow.
Material options still undecided.........aluminium, plastic of some sort, or could go for the bling carbon option, it all depends on shape.
Booked her in to get a new fuel sender fitted next week so that I don't run out of fuel again
Good luck with both, mate. Let us know how your under tray turns out.
Yesterday I dropped by a cycle gear in Laguna Hills, CA to pick up a leather suit. A woman took a picture of my bike because her friend would "never believe that she saw another shiver." Apparently he has one, and in the states they're still pretty rare bikes.
I pointed out the scratches that he'll get if he lets a 60 year old man ride it (my dad dropped it).
I purchased my Shiver in May 08, and since then I have only seen 1 other! And that was this past weekend!
That's fine by me!
I applied for a personalized license plate today, they said it could take upto 3 months to get
it's gonna say "APRILIA"
