Did eight years in the port, then made the swap to loadsmasha.

Bet your plane is pretty well detailed, too.

Yep. I pretty much fly a desk myself nowadays, when I'm not in the classroom teaching.

The more I look at your bike, the more I like it.

If I may offer an opinion, go with the o.d. canvas for the shovel cover and the "door" gaiter..

I have to say the rig looks nice.The seat looks very comfortable..Is that a police seat redone or aftermarket? I'm getting the seat in my tub redone to fit my wife with a Lumbar support and Russell style work on the bottom part..The look of your leather just helped that decescion....

It's not a police seat. It's from Raceway Services in Salem, OR. Here's a link to their Parts & Accessories page: http://www.racewayservicespaa.com/ I replaced the chrome springs that are installed stock with 3" black coil springs that I found on eBay (Chrome bad, black gooood...), and had a denser foam installed when I recovered it. I'm still not 100% happy with the foam density, but it's getting there. Stock, it's way too soft.
Or maybe I'm just way too fat?

Yeah, I was thinking either OD or brown, but I'm leaning toward OD. Can't go wrong with that, right?

Multi-cam would be my choice ;-)

Oh, a thought: What about making them out of the same brown leather you used for the seats?
