    Looks like a good deal to me, rent a trailer and get it. There is a lot of money and labor in those upgrades. You can pick up a bigger tank later.

    The price is prety good.

    If you get it, see if you can swap the seat out with an Iron 883. It is a more comfortable seat.

    You mean swap it out for the original solo? Cause this one has the HD Badlands 2-up. With the sissy bar on there, I can throw on a 115 liter, waterproof Sealline bag, bungee it down, and go. Thanks for the reply!

    The Badlands should be good. It was just the stock seat I was making reference to about replacing. (It has too little padding to the front and far to much to the rear)

    Would be a lot of fun on the Blue Ridge Parkway without even breaking the speed limit. :clap

    Not as cool as some of the others posted, but it's paid for.

    Even with the crash bars, I wouldn't want to drop a Concours hard. The crash bars screw into where the engine mounting bolts are. Fucking something up there in a drop would be a bad time indeed. For parking lot-type drops, what I did was get some pipe insulation from Home Depot (1" diameter) and wrapped the crash bars with it for some extra shock absorption, so that the impact doesn't break any bolts or more expensive parts. The insulation sticks to itself but I used zip ties also.

    Concours is scary off pavement. Top-heavy 700lb 4-cylinder bike with rattling plastics kind of eliminates any fun.

    Could anyone say a Daytripper is more comfortable than a Lepara Bare Bones ?

    I wouldn't.

    If you wan a comfortable seat spend just a little more and have one made for YOU. Box seats are.... Well... Box seats.

    Dakez has a good point about box seats; I'm lucky though, Ive got a skinny vibration proof ass and I don't weigh much so most anything that's as wide as my ass is good enough for me. I am going to bring my sportster to bitchn stichn in Lakewood so they can build it up and move me back a couple of inches. They and many other outfits can rework your foam so it fits your butt..

    I had a bare bones on an 04 883. The seat looked great. I m not kidding when I say I could not ride that bike more than 5 - 10 miles without my ass hurting. I returned it and bought a Mustang for about 200 bucks. Could not have been happier with it. Did a 1000 mile round the lake ride no problems. I am about 210 pounds on a good day. Get the Mustang you wont be dissapointed.

    My box Mustang seat has been great on my Dyna. Not the Daytripper though. After a two hour ride on a nice looking seat, I called Mustang and asked them to send me the ugliest seat they made. It has been super comfortable.
