I like the custom made (?) aluminum carrier. I assume that's mounted to a Givi rack?

It was designed (by who I don't know) to be bolted to a givi rack, got it with a Cagiva Gran Canyon I bought out of Portland Oregon a few years back. Drilled two holes in it and it bolted right up to the stock factory mounts on the st. I added a Ogio trunk bag to it, seems to be working fine.

38 degree day, but this is the frozen Mississippi, Bay City, WI
Tried my heated Corbin seat I just installed.
Warm, yes. But the seat is as soft as a pine board.
And I think the PO armor alled the seat, slippery!
Maybe I can clean it and change the foam, it was only 90 bucks on CL.

Oh, wow, I like the way you composed that shot. Nicely done.

$90 for a heated Corbin--that's a steal. Surprised it's soft though cause they are usually pretty firm. Dawn Liquid dishwashing detergent will strip off the ArmorAll and other coatings. Simple Green is also a good stripper. If still too slippery, a more radical approach is to buy some aerosol adhesive from Home depot like 3M Super 77. You'd have to spray a super light coat from a long ways away, let it dry then test it before adding anymore. But this is kind of a radical approach since removing the adhesive is difficult and most adhesive removers will likely damage the leather.

Thanks, for the comp on the pic.
I actually compared the softness to a pine board. So yes it is very firm.
I will try the Dawn and it was like you read my mind about some kind of adhesive approach.
Thanks for the tips!

The Dawn soap did help, but I thought I would try the product Sno Seal to protect it and also make it just slightly sticky.

It did the trick and will hold my seat.

Just installed the Delkevic 18" tri-oval slip fit mufflers. They have a beautiful tone quality and are not at all loud. $305 including shipping! The hand polished 304 stainless steel has a very high quality appearance.

I now have put over 200 miles on the 1300 without the baffles in on my 1300. I must say I never anticipated such a sweet sound. All for only $305 including shipping!

Sounds like a nice addition. Did the performance or mileage change in any way?

Zero perceptible change in performance or mileage. Fairly certain the rear tire life expectancy is going down. :)

The burble on trailing throttle is addictive.
