Our new American Mistress

After much waiting, our Harley-Davidson Pan America arrived! Actually we got it a couple of months ago but I just realized that I never got a blog post up... so here it is, short and sweet.

We put a deposit on the bike back in February. It arrived about 2 months after the initial orders were shipped mid-May. Apparently, because I ordered the "Special" but opted out of the automatic ride height adjust option, my bike got pushed to the back of the queue. It arrived 7 weeks later than expected which is never a good thing when you design parts for a living. We got at the designing later than we really wanted to but better late than never.

The Gut Guard skid plate is damn near ready to go. I'm really happy with the way it has turned out. The motor on this bike is a "stressed member" and integral part of the motorcycle's chassis. There are no frame rails to mount a skid plate too. We didn't want to bolt the plate directly to the motor. It was a challenge but I'm very happy with the results. The Gut Guard will be available soon.
