These look SWEET! Thanks for the encouragement and the ideas. I'll post pics when I've got mine going. There's not much to look at right now.
Thasiet, I love it. That's kind of what I'm hoping to do. With my current shifter/break setup, it would be much easier to use trekker style bars. But I love the drops so much on my roadie, I really want to eventually put them on my tourer.
Looks like we have some aussies on this thread. I spent 1990-1991 in Victoria and Tasmania, and that would be my ultimate dream, to go back to Australia and do a bike tour. I loved it there. Beautiful cities, and more beautiful away from the cities. I could ride my bike and eat those crappy four and twenty pies I like so much. On rainy days I could just hang out in the pub and watch footy. I still barrack for Collingwood, even if they aren't that good, and nobody here knows who they are or what it means to barrack for anything....I digress.
