    Baloffski .. thanks for the heads up on pic .. haven`t been near the Qld boarder since this whole Covid thing started up .. been doing rides around Sth East Qld for the time being .. Qld politicians are looking at Total Boarder closure again if things get any worse down Vic and Nsw`s .

    Wonder if they are any closer to a Vaccine at least or preferably a Cure .. what`s that current Buzz word .. Unprecedented times .. sorry 2 words , Lol .

    So, we went for a ride to Murray Bridge and then down to the coast at Robe. Some good dirt roads to get to the beach. Bit crappy for a swim though. Nice run all up, just thought I would share for all our Victorian brothers and sisters who are confined at the moment. Stay safe and hope you all can get out for a ride soon

    Cheers

    Thanks Steelo, not too sure what I was doing wrong but it always ended up on its side. The photo that is, not the bike.

    Yeah thanks for the weather forecast PB. Just looked at the 7 day outlook here and the max is 14C. Should be grateful though, it was minus 2 when we left for the ride the other day.

    Cheers

    Hi Shady … did you have to buy the plug off Harley and then wire up to the Eliminator kit , pretty straight forward job .

    Another little thing to check on and that's the rear reflector … usually above or below the number plate … haven't got mine on just yet but the original one should be able to be attached under kit at base of number plate … with a little bending to match the curved eliminator kit .

    Considering how much other stuff we do to our bikes this doesn't seem like a big issue but I was pinged on my 08 Softail by transport dept. back when the Big Bikie Blitz was on … no fine or points at the time but a ticket was given and I was told it was in the system and if I was done again then the fine would follow … put one on and never had a hassle .


    When I do put mine on I am hoping it will not only look Ok but will also cover most if not all of that lower Black rubber bung … yours being Black paintwork the rubber bung doesn't stand out as much as mine ... we will see .

    The kit comes with plug and play...no additional wiring needed.......i will have a look at where the reflector can go
    Can you share what you ordered from custom dynamics to get that setup please.

    Shady 1964 … Great minds think alike … Lol … did the same to my 17 RG Special … really cleans up the rear end … not sure what the boys in Blue

    would think though … fingers crossed they would realise especially with the Bag Blades how much better they are and how much brighter they are , 

    time will tell I suppose .

    Ride511 .. my apologies for not replying sooner .. don`t get on the computer everyday .

    So I assume you are talking about the number plate set up .. Ok so I have the Ciro3D Bag Blades , the thin strips right under the Bag lids .. I got the Tri-Bar lights at bottom of Fender , Custom Dynamics , never found out why the international models don`t have them as standard , fairly straight forward plug and play .

    The Number Plate set up / Taillight Eliminator is Custom Dynamics .. Forgive my bad memory as I have put so much stuff on this bike I forget sometimes what`s what .. From Memory I bought the Curved backing plate and the curved number plate holder which bolts into the backing plate  .. the set up has the .. Brake , Indicators , Running Lights , Plus the Number plate light all in one .. now when I got them which wasn`t all that long ago there was no plug on the end of the wires .. so all I did was go to a Harley Dealer , any dealer should have them and bought a Genuine Harley plug and had the Dealer wire the Custom Dynamics wires up to the Harley plug and then it was a straight forward plug and play .

    Only real issue was fitting it as there is bugger all room between the back of the tyre and the inside of the rear guard where the bolts are .. straight forward if you remove the wheel but I didn`t want to go to that much of a hassle .. so it was a matter of using the right tools and only being able to remove the bolts about a quarter turn at a time .. can be frustrating but really not that hard a job just annoying at times .

    Front has the Custom Dynamics Windshield Indicators and Running Lights .. plus Custom Dynamics little indicators and running lights that sit in the lower part of Fairing .. and just recently I installed the Ciro3D Headlight Bezels , which again are running lights plus indicators .

    Legality wise as far as I am aware they are all good .. have been pulled over for the normal checks by our Boys in Blue and touch wood so far so good .

    If you end up going down the path of getting some of these lights make sure you get the International ones as they Flash the correct colours for Australia .

    Hope I have been of some assistance .. Cheers .

    The reason Australian touring bikes don't have the tri bar light working is that according to ADR rules the running/ brake light is too low.....when I installed my plate frame there was a plug installed and simple plug and play...
