Hi there, I go by Blu for short. Been riding since I was a kid and for about 8 years now with my club Flatlanders RC. Rode both Harleys and metrics, chopped a few and rode some stock. Currently have '94 springer softail with touring bags, a ZZR600 sport bike (currently fixing broken plastic from PO), my '81 xs400 brat style project bike and just purchased a 1989 Tour Glide Ultra with 26k on the clock...which brings me here. Looking learn all I can about this bike and see what others are doing. Settled on a dark 11" sport windshield from Clearview Shields but waiting till after my trip to MI for Bike Time later this week. Any recommendations on bar height while maintaining stock cables would be appreciated. Looking forward to digging through these threads and seeing what you guys are doing with the EVO sharks.
