Brake lines aren't bad..... that thing has linked brakes, l think. If so get out your money...... put black lines back on, so they at least look OEM.
Tank bags never made any sence to me. I know a lot of guys use them, but how are you supposed to lean over/ duck down with that thing in the way? Touring, just doesn't look like any fun. Endless straight line miles, flat profile tires.... yuck! To each his own.
That's a cool old bike, tho. I'd love to ride one some time, because l never have. I've ridden a friend's 1100 Ninja. That wasn't bad. The 1200 Ninja was a bull ox. You wouldn't think there would be much difference.....
I was on my 929, one day, and caught up to a guy on a Blackbird. Once he saw l was back there, he tried to make a run for it. The road was too curvy, he soon gave up and waved me by.
One of the previous owners put taller clip-ons on my Interceptor. I wish they hadn't.
