I wish I put something into the rut to show it better, because it almost looks non-existent from this angle. And who installed it backwards, anyway?

Well it has been hit with the farkle stick. The handlebars are stock with rox rises. The seat is stock I still can't decide if I like it. I did 525 miles on it sat. and at times I like the gripper material and times hate it. I've got 24,000 on the bike so I guess I'll keep it. My opinion is just a can won't be much gain other than sound. Can,headers,PC,flash gets about 10 horsepower I think. I'm content with just the Flash. I don't need anymore power for the dirt I ride and can pass anything on the slab with ease. I'm not near as big as some of you guys so I'm happy with the power, Very Happy!

I started with a Madstad bracket and stock screen then added a National cycle Vstream in the sport size. It works well for me. I have some Cee Bailey wing wind deflectors that I put on for long slab rides and in the winter. I'm happy with it!

Thanks.

The backrest cushion is from Jesse's. The top rack is a Givi. Jesse doesn't make a top rack and I needed somewhere to put long items like tent poles and chairs.
