virago bags

Great looking bikes. What kind of bags do you have on the virago and did you have to move the signals?

Thanks I love it and just about done adding stuff.
They are Hard Krome K2s, I got a great deal on them from a member on another board. It was one of the first things I wanted to do also these were my first choice but had decided that they were out of my price range when out of the blue this guy contacted me with an offer I couldn't refuse and they sound great. Not too quiet.

Updated pictures of my "08" Boulevard

003.JPGHere is some pictures of my bike and the trailer I pull behind it. By the way the trailer is a 1982 "Shoreline". My best guesstament is the trailer has around 40,000 miles on it.

Man, that is an awesome setup. I'm guessing it pulls OK ?

Cruiser Pics

Thanx Imoverit,

Yeah you don't even know it's there! But, I put a swivel hitch on the trailer back when I first set the trailer up back in 1982.And with the swivel tight turns or rough roads don't affect the handling That's right, the trailer is 28 years old! I redid the trailer last fall to match the bike. Drilled holes around the lid (57) so that I could place rivets in to match the bike. Replaced all the nuts,bolts and screws with stainless steel.
When my wife and I take off on a trip we get a lot of thumbs up and a few pics taken.

By the way I use to have a metal cooler on the front painted to match the mc and trailer back,But somebody needed my cooler worse than me.

I agree with Warden. I love the way a Goldwing looks. Plus for 2-up comfort you cannot beat a wing. I am really wanting a new Goldwing. I might be two bikes away though. My next will be a 1800 VTX.

I met a couple riding a goldwing trike in centerville IA headed to DM for Wing Dings. They were headed up from Florida, thats one hell of a ride. I used to hate goldwings, thought they were stupid. As I get older they make more and more sense.

When time came to upgrade to a new bike I had a choice to either wait another year for goldwing or get c109 right away....It was financially more reasonable (and responsible at the time) to get cheaper bike first.

Okay, I too have posted some of my pics in other forums, but here they are again.

1983 Yamaha Midnight Virago 920

Besides the starter issue, the bike runs like brand new!

I agree,...nice bike. I think Honda made a mistake discontinuing the 1100 line, the 1300's are a larger framed bike and this leaves a hole in their line up in my opinion.

2009 Suzuki Boulevard C50SE (I guess in past years the SE would have a flame paint job and this bike would have been the C50C, but I'm pretty sure it is the SE for 2009). Anyway, I have added Cobra engine guards, a Suzuki windshield, and River Road bags. There are other additions I want to make, the only future additions that will change the look though are a sissy bar and backrest and possibly highway pegs.

I'm not really up on Suzuki's model identification system but my guess would be the C50C= Cruiser50Custom and the C50SE=Cruiser50Special Edition,...or something along those lines. I'm sure someone on the site can and will clear this up shortly.

Your pretty much right.

M109R = Mussle 109ci Race
C109R = Classic 109ci Race
C109RT = Classic 109ci Race Touring

Then the C50C= Classic 50 Cruiser and the C50SE= Classic 50 Special or Sport Edition. Got it.

Thanks,

C50 came as a C50 (standard) the C50T (Touring model) and the C50C, SE, and LE (Custom, special edition, limited edition) so basically the C, SE and LE are all the same.....and the 4 differences from the standard model are the studded seats, the Boulevard logo stamped into the seat, the paint (2009 C50's are a solid color, the SE comes with 2 tone paint) and the cast aluminum wheels....and going by the Suzuki site (and the dealership I bought mine at) the C/SE/LE edition is #300 more than the standard C50 (which to me is worth it for the cast wheels alone)

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

OOOO I like this! I need to ask though, how tall are you? Do you feel stretched out reaching for the drag bars? OH and how big is the big bore kit?

They're not really drag bars, they do pull back a good bit. Have considered some beach bars with the same low profile and a little more pull back though.

Pretty sweet ride this is what I'm looking at for a rider. How do you like it? it must have pretty good jam with the big bore kit.

Stainless are those UV or just purple? How easy is it to set those up? I've been playing with taking my bike apart and found some extra leads sittin' there but am not sure if they could be used for something like that.

Any ways, I always love me a V-star 1100 custom, just have to take that windshield off How does it ride?

The package said purple but they seem to be UV as I've noticed the effect on certain colors. They are just basic electopods and come with their own switches connected to the wires(I have two kits, one on each side) Eventually I will add some to shine the wheels and connect all to a switch on bars.
I suppose you may want to find out were those wire come from, and if/when they have power. I just ran the wires to the battery for now, they go wherever you want them. pretty easy really
It rides nice-n-smooth and handles well it the twistys. Although I don't push it hard too often, It is very predictable.
