After a hiatus of almost 15 years, baggers are again attracting customizers and small volume bike manufacturers.They are all busy at designing very creative touring bikes. A good example is Big Bear Choppers with their new Grand Touring C-Wedge (GTX) which will be offered for sale in November as part of the 2008 fleet. You will immediately notice the unusual position of the rider & passenger sitting way forward the rear wheel. The reason? By placing more weight in the center of the bike you are supposed to get better handling & comfort. There are 2 fuel tanks for a total of 6 gallons, the auxiliary tank being placed under the seat near the oil tank. Regarding the body work, I let you appreciate the flowing lines due tothe low stance and the stretched out saddlebags. A new version of this GTX is also in he works and should also appear in November. Big Bear Choppers.
