Bike into Bagger 2013 Buying Guide TOTW
This Bike into Bagger Buying Guide will outline the motorcycle industry's most popular products which will allow you to convert or transform your standard or naked into a fully functional "bagger." One of the best ways to know what you want "your bagger" to look like is to visit rallies, events, forums, and showrooms to see what style of fairing and saddlebags best suit the look and functionality you are striving to obtain with your bagger build. Luckily, the bagger segment is in full swing and there are hundreds of manufacturers offering fairings, brackets, windshields, saddlebags, audio systems,[CR1] and so much more! Stay tuned as we weed through the hundreds of items and bring you the good, better, and best in bagger options so you can be prepared to get your build on! Fairing Revolution Harley Davidson birthed the bagger in 1969 with the introduction of the fork mounted fairing option on their Electra Glide motorcycles. In the early 2000's the Street Glide and Road Glide began to gain popularity over the Dyna, Road King and Sportsters. It wasn't until 2005 or so that the fairing manufacturers began expanding their offerings from Harley only applications catering to the metric bikes. Hoppe and Dragonfly were leaders in the "bagger revolution" with the highest quality products. In 2010, Memphis Shades released their Batwing Fairing, which attached to their trigger lock mounting system and brought fairings to metric bikes for just about $500. Kuryakyn then released the Sportech line of fairings in the $700 price range. All of a sudden, fairings became obtainable for the average Joe, whether riding a Harley or a Metric motorcycle. Saddlebag Revolution Fitting saddlebags to any bike that does come with saddlebags can be a challenging venture. Finding the correct brackets, the right size bags, throw over, bolt-on, locking hard vs. soft... there is so much to think about and to factor into the equation. Today, we will boil these options down into a good, better best format you can easily follow! Good, Better &Best of Fairings at Cruiser Customizing Our "good" could be your "best"! The "good fairing" here is our most popular fairing and it works for just about every bike out there!

My Harley Davidson Iron being stolen- security video
UPDATE: all info is here, including insurance info- added below also, yes I am a Pick Up Artist and I teach guys how to get chicks (best job ever!) http://bravopua.com/blog/ It was stolen Friday at 4am in Tempe Az in a pretty nice building, gated, security, and well lit corner under a camera A 2011 Harley Davidson Iron Sportster, stage 1ed it, 1200 motor upgrade, plunderdog saddlebags, Mustang seat, VH staggered pipes, chiped and tuned. Steering is locked that is why he is yanking it back and forth so much. Multiple clips I had to film if their monitor with me iPhone. No info yet, cops have his mountain bike and dusting for prints. Have insurance will find out how good. First motorcycle I've ever bought. Saved up for awhile. Wanted to ride forever. Paid cash. Trip to LA and down the coast to San Diego. And the good spots across Az. She will be missed. I hope the guy falls and gets paralyzed. UPDATE: posted as a comment but many miss, Progressive paid me full amount for bike, new replacement (I paid extra for great coverage) No idea how he started it or that the fork was so easy to break! UPDATE: UPDATE!!! got a check from Progressive $13,203.34 http://instagram.com/p/iwjc6lhZBe/ I was thinking I would be lucky to get 10G's for the bike, because it was used/depreciated. But because I paid extra for the better coverage (instead of like 180 a year I paid 624 a year) they covered total replacement with a NEW bike. So instead of them offering me what a 2011 used Iron was worth, they gave me what a new (and more expensive MSRP) 2014 Iron would cost. Since this was my first bike, I assumed I would have dropped it or laid it down...not that it would have been stolen. So I got the EXTRA coverage. I also didn't have the best health insurance then, so I paid extra for WAY more medical coverage. (a bike accident would be more serious and costly) Even though I paid cash for the bike, I had saved for a bit for it, I still opted to have great coverage. Glad I did. I didn't ride it for a few months after some back issues, and they even offered to lower the coverage for those months until I would ride it again. Rep said- no reason to have all that coverage if it is just parked. But I knew that if I wanted to hop on it, I wouldn't call them before to re-upgrade. So I left it alone- thank fuck I did. It was stolen from the spot it was parked in for those months. I had a 50 dollar deductible. I also am getting SOME of the $ back for the warranty I purchased...but only like 100-200 bucks. The upgrades= I had all done at the shop I bought it from, mostly when I first bought it. So just went back in there and had them reprint the paper work. I also had an aftermarket seat and saddlebags that I bought online, so was simple for me to find those in my inbox and just reprint (I always keep receipts) The best part of all of this- I was bouncing around the idea of trading it in for a different bike. My GF is looking for one and I was thinking of getting a bigger Harley or something sportier...but I knew I would lose my ass on selling it or trading it in. So even though some POS stole it...it works out pretty well for me!!! Now I got a big check to help me on my next purchase. :D

How to Fix a Motorcycle Fairing for less than $10
Motorcycle Fairings are generally made of ABS plastic. So is standard ABS sewer pipe. Just like ABS pipe can be sealed together so can broken fairings. And the materials needed can be picked up at your local Lowes or Home Depot. Just use ABS cleaner to clear the crack/joint. Then apply the ABS cement. Let it bond together and you are good to go.
