Get some one to take a picture of you , with all your gear on , sitting on your bike.
Then you will have a better idea what you have to cover
I was watching a youtube clip where on of our DLRA guys had one of his friends video him on the bike moving

The spot on the triple clamp halfway between the fork tube and the steering stem, and halfway between the front and back of the clamp, is often the least stressed part and the place to drill a hole.

Anders, it is looking soooooo good!  :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

You have the eye of an artist.

Thank you very much Pete. Unfortunately I don´t always have the patience to get the finer details right, that is probably one of the reason why I am building a race bike instead of a trailer queen show bike. :-)

I will try to persuade some neighbor passing by to take a couple of pictures once the weather starts getting better. I drove my Triumph to work 25km from home a couple of days ago, on my way there the temp was -1°C and on my way back home it was raining. I can´t believe I managed to cover the entire span of Swedish motorcycling weather in just one day...

Thanks, I´ll try to keep the holes to that location.

Cheers!

Ha ha, I am actually enjoying my second cup of coffee thank you. Our 2-year old daughter is an early bird so I´ve been up since 05:30 this morning. :-)

For the sake of the discussion, in what time zone are you located?  How 'bout if you reference it to Greenwich time to make it easy for all of us 'round the world to translate to our local?  We're in the Zulu -5 hours zone - save that during the summer we go on "Daylight Saving Time" and we're only 4 hours behind Zulu.

Is it? Oh well. :-)

On a side note I won "Best European Motorcycle" with my Bonneville today at Springmeet Östersund, around 1000 custom cars and bikes so plenty of competition.





Cheers!

Corngratulations on winning the award.  When I look at the photos I think "Minimalist"!  Not  much there other than what's absolutely necessary.  Great looking work, Anders. :cheers: :cheers:

Don't try riding on a gravel road without a rear fender, Anders.  :-D

Anders, one of those full length mirrors like the ladies use, leaning against the wall, will allow you to look at yourself when you are on the bike.
