    New Thunderbird

    Is there any new or updated info on a new model T/bird? I heard something about the name and engine size had been re registered with some US dept which suggested another may be on the way. Im hoping it will be as eye catching as the new R3

    Risers: OEM vs Thunderbird vs Rivco

    I finally found a set of Rivco risers and compared the rise and pull back of the three. The Rivco is about 1/2”” more rise than the Thunderbird risers. When on the top yolk they are actually the same lift, but move the bars that 1/2” closer to the rider. I went for a ride this evening to test...

    Thunderbird Sissy Bar And Rack On A Roadster...with Pics

    So, I bought the factory sissy bar and rack for the Roadster and after getting it all mounted up I stepped back and looked at it. :( The side brackets were too wide for the sissy bar...the tubing was square (I think it's the only square parts on the bike)...and that pad was a joke.
