Here's a tip, I don't know if you thought of it yet. The UK pound is worth roughly twice the US dollar. Buy what ever you're gonna buy from NewSpeedmaster.com or British-Customs.com or another US company and you'll end up paying half of what you would have paid at home.

I'm not so sure about 1/2, however I paid $818.39 U.S for my thunderbike pipes(from NZ):shipping & Freight Included.New Zealand would have been $1205.00 N.Z. Maybe 1/3 price savings. I could be wrong, but I think there sovereignty is England , although perhaps they may have a different monetary system in N.Z.

Yeah...and then the highwayman that is Customs and Excise take more than what is fair from you before you can collect it......

There's Jenks, Custom Cruisers in Derbyshire, Tribal Accessories, M&P in Swansea. Google them for links.

Sissy bar...get the Triumph one. The Tall one though. I have concerns that others may not fit. Try ebay first, they are reguarly popping up on there. Just don't go over £150 you mayaswell go new... And as you have an offer of a sissy bar above...the 05 will fit on an 06. At least the one of my 03 America fits on my 06 America....
