    Start of Phase 2

    Recently got one of the saddlebags done on the HD. Put genuine shark on the lid and straps. Turned out pretty cool:





    Still have the other bag to do - should have it finished up by the end of the week. Will be doing some fork wraps next and a tool bag.

    The bike has been a blast to ride, and it's been a huge savings on gas. I spend approximately $10/week. We're fortunate to have a great number of days to be able to ride.

    Thanks, folks, for the kind words. The real secret to these bags in particular is that I can change out the lids whenever I want. So I can put the shark on one day, elephant another day, stingray a different day, and tooled leather a different day. And, of course, the seat could be changed out very easily and quickly.

    Now that's one nice bike!

    I bet you are having fun with riding it and making it stand out with all the leather too.

    Nice bag Kevin - looks good for capacity too. My bike season is about over unfortunately.

    My eye was drawn as well in pic #2 to the Mustang .... ahhh ... memories back to when I had a '65 model, which sadly got wrecked.

    Don't forget the baby seals. Freshly clubbed last week!

    K-man - nice lookin' bike. Mine is an everyday commuter, and people think I'm nuts until they see me spend $20 to ride all week (60 mile commute every day). When does phase 3 start?

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?
