If they are stiff enough you can prop them between the chain and tire to keep overspray off the tire when adjusting and lubricating the chain.

I've also seen them used as garage art.

The Guzzi is back on my list. I hadn't seen the specs, cast wheels, or the low gel seat option until now. Now I wait to see it in person along with the new CB500s.

Thanks all!

Real model no, a fellow photographer. But she does ride not like most of us but trail bikes up at the cabin during the summer.

I don't know why fuel injection is such a big deal, but whatever, the SE has that anyway.

EDIT: Seat height is 29.1 inches, so there you go. As for comfortable - a matter of opinion.
I've done a Saddlesore 1000 on a Bonneville and did not regret it. You may be on to something.

That a saddlesore is a useless test for a modern motorcycle?

Salvadori. For the record, he's neither French nor a mime.
