Nelson Riggs Side Bags - Camping - Shinko A/V Tires

Made a 3 day run to Hunting Island. Bags worked great. Amazing how much gear they hold. Knobbies would be interesting for a 70hp bike..........

It looks like the bottom triple clamp would slam into the front fender at full compression?

Don't know about the tires as they were installed by Woody's, who laced the wire wheels. Yes, max travel stock I think is around 6 inches and I now have just under 5 although I am going to rework the fender mount I made and lower another 1/2 inch. Is on my Sunday to do list

Yep, checked and rotation arrow is pointing wrong way. I did not check when installing the wheels. Damn good news if all I need to do is swap the wheel the opposite way. To be honest, I was going have the dealer do it as having auxiliary lights wired. What a nob I would have been......... Really appreciate letting me know.

I like the spoke wheels. Are those the RAD hubs?
