Doing the little stuff now, but bags, outex, all electrics (fogs, tc sticky, heated grips).
Just finished up the tool tube, and tools.
Still on the list (in the postal outlet): tractive rear shock.

Cali end of march.

Greg, Looking good! My kid has been dealing on a hold over red white and blue. Ive sent him links to your posts as inspiration to what can be done. The conversion to tubless might have been a key. Nobody does that around here. We just all carry tubes and enough kit to change in the field. Thanks. You AT looks great.

thanks,

The tubes are for the front in case of a flat (tube type tires) and rear in case of a bad ding to the rim.
thanks for the kind words.  The tubes had me on the fence between the AT and 1090.  After riding a well sorted AT, i was sold.

Great bike.
