    Now you too can have a bike that looks like a Conestoga wagon! Make your front wheel look ridiculous to match the rest of your bagger pile.

    The good think is keeping the stock trail. About the detractors of the 23″ front wheel. Wait 1 or 2 years and Harley will have one this size of its production baggers. You bet?

    Marketing genius. Think of all the additional bikes that’ll need to buy replacement “normal” front end parts from the MoCo when these bikes don’t sell for squat on the used market.

    Hawg Halters, a good brakes company, should not try to follow all ridiculous fads and instead should keep on doing good brakes.

    Keep your bagger in stock outfit and ride.

    Bunch of whiners. Let bagger owners do what they want.

    I think 23″ is still reasonable and improves the look of the bike.

    The new look like women’s fashions change seasonally!

    Be sure to keep all the OEM parts. You’ll be needing them next year.

    I’ve read that HD is adamant about not changing wheel size or tire brand with their new proportioned braking setup. Any info on the research that has been done by Hawg Halters to see how the braking is affected.

    Whoa! All of a sudden customizing a bagger is a bad thing? Hey guys Cyril was a top shelf custom builder and if he were still in that game I suspect he’d be customising baggers today. A motorcycle is what you make of it whether leaving it stock or wildly custom. Whether you enhance the rideability with upgraded brakes, suspension and motor mods or go the other way for the sake of looks it should be your choice. And yes, Rodent, despite the t-shirt message of a decade or so ago, “it is a f*#king fashion show”.
    Hawg Halters are good people and turn out well engineered products and here I speak from experience.

    Great product!

    Well said doc!. I ride a Yamaha vstar classic 1100 with Corban hard bags and a batwing fairing. those Corban bags are NOT STOCK. In all honesty they look like Beatle wings. point is,that its my bike, my bagger and when you see it flying down the road you arnt going to notice the factory v- twin or paint job. No you will notice the style and uniqueness of that passing motorcycle. If some of you think the 23″ is a bad idea that’s fine, but don’t hate on your fellow riders or there motorcycle upgrades of choice. just sit back and let the riders ride and all that jazz. Ride hard and ride safe.
