    Cool Do this immediately! ... well not exactly

    To any of my fellow buellers who may not have their bike adequately protected, listen up.

    Had a low speed wash out of my front tire (25 mile new contimotion). Very little damage thanks to the supermoto style cheapo axle sliders I made.IMG_20150926_140137.jpg
    Thanks to that there is no damage at all to the rear end.

    So I will be looking for parts gentlemen please keep your eyes open for me.

    So if you guys don't have super deep pockets and would like another effective and cheap way to protect your bikes, skateboard wheels for the win

    should be able to get what you need from guys on the forum. Good luck with the healing. I thought I bought it last night. Was cruising about 40 mph on a four lane road last night. Was approaching an intersection where a high school football game was going on. Kid in a Scion wants to turn left in front of me. I brake and he stops and waves me on. I start to accelerate and about 20 feet from the intersection he goes ahead and turns left in front of me. Missed him by inches. Wanted to stop and follow him into the game and beat his ass, but said **** it and kept going. Ass wipe kid.

    Glad to hear you and your bike are okay for the most part. As far as trying to avoid the primary cover damage if this happens again you should think about saving up for these. http://www.5-0dro.com/index.php/buel...s-03-07-detail 5-0dro makes quality stuff and is very easy to install. Also not bad on the price.

    Its a good idea. I've wanted to get those but haven't been able to scratch the cash together. Thinking about the speed rails from xtreembikeworks. Anyone have experience with them?

    I got my primary cover for my 2005 on ebay for I think $230 plus shipping. Hopefully they still have a few.
