Did you say " I love it when a plan comes together" after that bit of lateral thinking? Nicely worked out but I don't want a go. :yup:

Nice bit of engineering there ;) just a question though, why have an extra set of controls linked to the originals instead of just moving the originals? Respect for you for keeping riding 8-)

Good point Kev but this way i dont need to mess with extended cables etc and if i ever have to sell it (over my dead body!) then the mods come off and its all standard buell once again, Thanks tadpole but i cant find a way to ride it in a straight line yet but roundabouts i have sorted!! ha ha :D

Brother, yeah its shorter due to having the shoulder totally fused in an operation after a Brachial plexus injury so now i "steer" from the elbow and not the shoulder and it makes a good steering damper! lol
