Bolt-on Bonanaza Baggers need Not Apply
You’ve seen ‘em. Maybe weaving in and out of traffic, warily wobbling to and fro, or parked precariously outside a bar with neon lights twinkling off the polished cylinders. Allowing your eyes to peruse its many curves, the build-sheet reads like a custom bagger accessories checklist, as if assembled using a template. But like a man who buys brown slacks at one store, a brown vest at another, and finds a brown jacket at a third store, a coherent suit it does not make. The same can be said for many of today’s custom baggers; sure, the pieces are all spec’d for the same model, but the final product just doesn’t flow.
We’ve featured several motorcycles from Trask Performance over the years, largely because of their flow, of both air and visually speaking. I first became familiar with the Trask name as a supplier of non-automotive turbo kits. I’d seen the name in magazines, but it really sealed the deal when I came to Dakota Digital and saw the Polaris RZR with a turbo and intercooler out back courtesy of Trask. Recently, Trask Performance has expanded their menu, offering complete bikes like the aft-featured SpeedGlide series, as well as a full line of accessories.
