My initial ride with Buck's Lowers

I arrived home this evening from an overnight at Ozark Lake State Park. I needed to get out of the house and away from civilization and I had been wanting to tour Ozark Caverns and Jacobs Cave (both are pretty cool). I arrived home, wind beaten, neck stiff, and ready to crawl off my ride after fighting a 20-25 mph crosswind/headwind (the aviators would call a quartering head wind).

I tried the arm across the chest trick... it just seemed to good to be true. Would these lowers really be able to block all that wind? By the way, thanks Butch... I noticed myself doing that trick on the way home when I needed a break from the wind... I managed to get some strange looks!

Upon arriving home, I noticed a package on the front porch... Buck's lowers had arrived! Quick turnaround... I mailed the check on Monday!

Imagine my excitement after being hammered by the wind all day!

Installation was a breeze... I think a 5 year old could mount these up. The brackets are obviously built to last, and overall construction looks very solid.

After doing some research on the net, I found 1 other place that offers lowers for the 1300, but it was my understanding that there were some issues with them hitting engine bars. Whether they have that issue resolved, I am not sure, but I do know that their lowers were pricier than Buck's. Maybe someone will comment and post the link to the other lowers as I seem to have misplaced it.

I couldn't wait and wanted to hop on the interstate to test them out. I ended up taking a 25 mile loop that put my in a headwind, crosswind and tailwind. I was truly amazed at the difference... and to be honest, I don't get truly amazed very often!

1300 tourer fansite update (again)

Another update...

I have installed a Google Maps based module into our site. You may have noticed the Users link at the top of the page. This should give a Google map of our users (you don't need to add your location if you don't want to). If you add your location (the edit your location link under the map) I encourage you to not pinpoint your house, but just to select a general area.
