Got her home today!

It was a nice clear day but a tad chilly (in the 20's) We loaded it up in my buddy's truck at the shop in Anchorage and stopped about .8 miles from my house at a rental place so we could borrow their ramp to unload it. Now it's safe and sound in the garage!


LOVE the tires!

Nice dude... that looks like it could climb walls with those wheels!

Is that a black 1/2 tank cover? it really breaks up the bike lines.

Looks mean.

Tires like that on the V make it look Zombie Apocalypse worthy. I like it! Congrats on getting the bike home, here's hoping to an early Spring to get the riding season started.

Always trust your cape.

Thanks for all the kind words guys As for the tires they are stock size with a TKC-80 up front and a Hideneau K60 Scout in the rear. They are a very popular tire combo here in AK.

From what I've seen on other 11 models they were all colored like this from the factory.
