Wow, looks awesome, I am picking up my new Vaquero in 2 weeks, already have the 21" on order from roaring twinz myself. I also plan on installing the progressive suspension front lowering kit on as RT did in their build, lowers it and levels it, good luck with your paint. I sat on that bike last year, they did an amazing job on it. Oh yeah, also ordered their 13" apes.

Looks good. Any wheel wobble? How does it handle fair sized bumps?
Well, I just put some Ride On wheel balancer and tire sealant in the tire and took it on a 160 mile camping trip with the Bunkhouse. No wobble. It takes speed bumps with no problem. So far, I love it!

I've only ridden a couple hundred miles since the install, and I put in Ride-On instead of Dynabeads. I feel like it takes a little more input to the handlebars to turn than with the stock tire, but not enough to bother me. I still have no trouble scraping the boards at will.
