    In a word, yes. As the ADVrider rules state: Inmates may own no more than one motorcycle. Owning more than one motorcycle is a sign of MBD. (Multiple Bike Disorder) We here at ADVrider would like to help you with your illness. Duck is here to help you. Sort-a-like the government.

    The cure is very hard. You now need to sell me your ST for 1$. :lol3:lol3:lol3

    Hell, if you can swing it and the wife is still happy....

    That's a GREAT price. Damn, I was hoping to get ~$7K out of my very clean '06 with 26K miles.

    I was gonna suggest getting something mo different, but it seems you done did that. :D

    Lucky you. No crusiers in your collection though. I just off loaded my FJR and picked a clean Kawasaki Nomad, and I am loving it.

    I've come close to getting a Valkyrie Interstate a coupla times. I dunno, I just like flying acrobatically in airplanes (and helicopters but keep that quiet) and taking corners fast on motorcycles...and that can be problematic on some cruisers...:D

    I sprung for a used Russel today and the owner threw in a factory windshield.

    I also snagged a Nelson-Riggs SLR 10 tank bag off Motorcyclegear.com a couple weeks ago. With discount coupons I paid $44 for the bag.

    After throwing the seat on the bike it is starting to look like an LD ride.

    Thanks,
    I was thinking about breathable air space with this pattern. :rofl

    I also didn't want big seams because I had a Corbin and the seams went right under my thighs, after awhile they felt like ropes.

    I love my Russell, THE best money I've ever spent on a motorcycle,.....besides fuel. :thumb

    Thousands of pinholes for water to get through. I ordered mine with the half-moon stitching for precisely this reason. The least number of holes through the cover. Looks gooder to :D

    I made it through the Dragon without any problem, Not really a problem IMO. You can always strap the stock seat on the back and swap it out when you get there. :lol3

    I've been caught in two downpours, wearing an Aerostitch, and both me and the seat dried out with a problem. Didn't notice the seat suffered any more than I did. I never had it be wet after a washing either. :dunno

    From the Russell site;

    Rain covers are advised for all seat cover choices, including all vinyl, since the sewing machine needle holes render them less than 100% waterproof. Our rain covers are made from double coated nylon with little or no stitching except where the bungee cord is sewn into the perimeter. They are sized amply for a loose, wrinkle free fit.

    The ONLY time I'm uncomfortable on my Day Long is when the cover is on. Guess their something to be said for leathers ability to breath (I wear the same gear with liners in whether it's raining or not - It's not my gear making me uncomfortable).

    Oh, speaking of gear, I wear Motoport Kevlar which is well known to be abrasive. It IS doing a number on the piping on my seat.

    As far as hanging off with the Day Long, it's mostly an upper body thing. (From my Lee Parks class)
