'I ride gravel fast in remote places'

Found by Dan Walsh on ADV Rider forum. Love people who prove you don't need the 'perfect' bike for every occasion. GI

Started from 2008 XL1200N 'Nightster'
18" rear, 19" front Sun rims Dunlop K180 flattrack tires( now Conti Twinduro)
Chain conversion from Storz
Mikuni HSR42 conversion
All wiring harness/efi removed, chopper wired with about twelve feet of wire, marine grade simple switches, glow when fail fuses
Nitemarz high pipes with internal glass packs
Indian royal enfield 18 liter military patrol fuel tank plumbed with find anywhere taps and fittings
Standard 7" find anywhere headlamp shell and caged bright led driving light
Road king shocks, proggresive fork springs

I ride gravel fast in remote areas so the changes reflect my needs.
Thanks and yes it rips!
Lyle, Canada

I love it, mods inspired by hard won experience from the sound of it.

Gives it a righteous authenticity.

I love how he used an H-D to work up from. Bikers can be so closed-minded. There's potential in everything.
